Planned Parenthood is just really worried that if women start using adoption, birth control and find ways to to keep their children, they will be put out of business. Poor little liberal crybabies… outraged that their opponents can now get grants too. Since when does abortion equal healthcare? Why does the murderer of innocent babies think we should care what he calls “lunacy?”
Abortion providers are criticizing more than $1.6 million in state funding that was allocated to the Texas pro-life Heidi Group.
The Heidi Group, a conservative, Christian nonprofit health group, organizes crisis pregnancy centers and outreach to poor Texas women “by coordinating services in a statewide network of full-service medical providers,” about 25 of them in more than 60 counties.
The $1.6 million is part of the $18 million slated for the “Texas Healthy Women” program, which excludes Planned Parenthood as a health provider.
Well-known abortion providers such as NARAL and Planned Parenthood were not pleased.
“The Heidi Group is an anti-abortion organization; it is not a healthcare provider,” said Heather Busby, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Texas.
Busby argued that money should go to medical providers, not to “crisis pregnancy centers that already receive millions in state funding to coerce, shame and lie to Texans considering abortion care.”
Jeffrey Hons, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood South Texas, called the money allotment “outrageous” and “lunacy.” More
