Obama Administration To End Funding For Texas Health Program Over State’s Abortion Law | Fox News

by on March 10, 2012

Yeah it’s political and yeah Sebelius sits at the right hand of the devil. How about we stop the flow of federal money to a program in Texas which gets Sebelius out of the picture. And how about Texas stop funding any program connected to abortion? Two wrongs righted…drink a beer.

Perry blasted Sebelius’ announcement, insisting Medicaid rules give states the right to determine which clinics are qualified to provide women’s health care.

“The fact that the Obama administration would announce its decision to deny care for more than 100,000 low-income women during a press event before giving official notice to the state is a clear demonstration of the political motivation behind this decision,” he said in a written statement, adding that Texas officials are still waiting for official word on the decision.

As is the case with other programs now in the national spotlight, the Women’s Health Program provides cancer screenings, family planning and other women’s health services. About 44 percent of women in the Texas program go to Planned Parenthood clinics, although none that accept funding from the program may perform abortions, and no federal funds are used to terminate pregnancies.
