Texas passed two measures this summer to defund Planned Parenthood, slashing funding for family planning by almost three quarters and making funding for the women’s health organization a bottom priority. The move was expected to deprive 300,000 women of access to certain medical procedures, and now the consequences are already being felt. Last week, the anti-choice Life News confirmed that Planned Parenthood was forced to shutter 12 clinics in the state while some clinics that remain open have had to reduce operating costs.
