Planned Parenthood Cuts Delayed

State health officials have announced that Texas’ Planned Parenthood will not lose federal funding for the time being, according to WFAA.

Gov. Rick Perry has been working to cut Planned Parenthood funding through his new Women’s Health Program, which will rely solely on state funding

Officials said they need more time to make sure enough doctors are signed up for the new program that will exclude clinics with ties to abortion providers.

In response, Planned Parenthood is suing the state of Texas to stay in the program. Another hearing is set for November 8.
