War on Women Update

Pennsylvania | Just in from Planned Parenthood to women activists. That would be Anne.

YOU DID IT! Thanks to the outrage of tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians like you, the Ultrasound Bill - HB1077- is on hold indefinitely! Every single State Representative received hundreds of emails and phone calls expressing outrage at the excessive government overreach of the bill. Earlier this week, the bill was sent back to the Health Committee where it will stay until major changes are made.

Because of our strength, our opponents have backed down, but there seems to be no limit to their willingness to curtail reproductive rights in Harrisburg. Even though dozens of your representatives have come out in opposition and an unprecedented TWENTY-SIX who had originally signed on have removed their names from HB 1077, we need to keep up the fight!

International Women’s Day, Congress Debates Measure To Limit Reproductive Rights Huffington Post

The House Judiciary Subcommittee began on Thursday to discuss the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA), sponsored by two Florida Republicans, Marco Rubio in the Senate and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in the House. The bill would make it illegal for anyone but a parent to accompany a young woman across state lines to seek an abortion — even if her parents are absent or abusive.

Rosario Espriella and her children at Planned Parenthood in Edinburg, Tex. The agency has closed four clinics in the county. Eddie Seal for The New York Times Texas health care clinics are slashing poor women’s services, refusing federal funds under the Medicaid Women’s Health Care Program for 130,000 poor women. Gov. Rick Perry and Republican lawmakers have said the will forgo the $35 million in federal money that finances women’s health care rather than let Planned Parenthood have one dime.

In these state-level culture wars that seek to prevent women from receiving services that are legal in America including the morning-after pill, poor women are pawns in a men’s game of political chess.

Nationally, the four Republican candidates for president also want to abolish Title X at a federal level. Planned Parenthood sees about one-third of the five million low-income people covered under Title X, which has existed since the Nixon Administration, with dollars that represent one quarter of its budget.

Like other federal financing, Title X does not pay for abortions. Only some of it covers birth control. Title X also provides money for cervical and breast cancer screening, testing for H.I.V. and other sexually transmitted diseases, adolescent abstinence counseling, infertility counseling and other services.

Texas Women Suffer Now

Texas already is a leading state in the nation, cutting back health services to poor women. A year ago, Anne wrote You Want to Defund Planned Parenthood & Title X? Look at Texas AOC Sensual Rebel

Texas is #49 in verbal SAT scores in the nation (493) and #46 in average math SAT scores (502). Texas is #36 in the nation in high school graduation rates.

Texas also leads the nation in repeat pregnancies, with Dallas being the top city. Even teens who have given birth once are prohibited from obtaining birth control without parental consent.

Only 40 percent of teen moms giving birth at age 17 or earlier finish high school. Daughters of teen mothers are three times more likely to become teen parents than girls with older moms. Eight of 10 teenage fathers do not marry the mothers of their first children.
