    sure, they do provide a lot of services.. however, they are not the only ones that provide those services, so saying the women would have no healthcare is not accurate.

    PP does not hold a monopoly ( except for maybe abortions) on women's healthcare.

    Uhmm I did not say anything that extreme nota. Now if you want to step down to something less extreme I'd be more than willing to discuss the issue and see what we can learn from each other.

    We also have private clinics here in Texas.

    that's what PP claims... but as no audit of their accounting has ever been done, we can't know for sure.

    You posted, "I wonder if our new system in Texas is going to include things like prenatal care, housing, baby formula like PP has done in the past." That's what I asked what I did. If I've misinterpreted what you posted, please explain what you did mean.

    Re: Judge says Texas can't ban Planned Parenthood

    I was curious about what Texas does provide, so I Googled. Here are my links so far:

    Texas Medicaid Managed Care -- STAR Program

    Stephen F. Austin Community Health Center - Alvin, Texas - Prenatal Care

    You've expressed concerns, and I'm interested. What did Texas provide that it now will not?

    I'm still Googling, but it does seem to me preliminarily that Texas does have programs in place. I am really worried about that formula, though. Cannot stand the thought of hungry babies.

    understood..... but as an aside, PP doesn't feed hungry babies
