This is no surprise, Texas lawmakers have always been anti-abortion for everyone except their sloppy side action. They only reach out to women every two years for the election and the rest of the time they are advocating anti-women policies.

Texas doesn't want to regulate guns or businesses that cause billion dollar environmental disasters on the tax payers dime but hey, they draw the line at a woman's ovaries. Gotta regulate the woman's body. What century is it anyway? Did time start going backwards or something?

So you cut off family planning for the poor. Now the poor people have babies and put more of a strain on welfare. I don't see the logic.

If anyone understands the plight of poor, young women it is rich, old, white males. Thank heavens we have positioned them in all levels of our government and economy!

getcrazy, seems they want to remove themselves from any regulating of the woman's body and it is a state's right to do so. As female, I am responsible for my own ovaries, thank you. I don't expect any government to subsidize my choices nor should you.

Thumper5316 - Reread the article. Planned Parenthood isn't providing abortions. They are cutting funding for Planned Parenthood just because they support abortion rights.

So let me get this straight: you want to ban birth control AND abortions? That makes no sense. It has been proven time and time again that low-cost or free birth control drastically reduces the number of abortions.

Texas - where you can carry a gun and shoot someone who spits at you, but cannot control your own body.

Gotta regulate the woman's body. What century is it anyway? Did time start going backwards or something? =================== When over 300,000 babies are killed each year, regulating the free will killing of babies will save far more lives than all the banning of guns babble you continuously hear these days. Way to go Texas!
