Planned Parenthood Closes 12 Clinics After Texas De-Funding

State
A new confirmed total of 12 Planned Parenthood facilities have been shut down in Texas since the end of the 82ndlegislative special session, which dealt the abortion industry a $64.2 million blow.

Without government funding, Planned Parenthood facilities are withering on the vine.  New funding priorities set by the legislature detail that any facility associated with the abortion industry is given the lowest priority for family planning funds.  As a result, three Planned Parenthood affiliates have been forced to close several of their facilities in order to reduce operating costs.

Each closing is a victory for women and for the unborn.
