Posted on 03/09/2012 6:33:16 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
The federal government will stop funding a Texas health program that serves 130,000 low-income women because of a state law that bars abortion-affiliated clinics from getting public money, a top U.S. health official said Friday.
The federal money, which covers 90 percent of the state's $40 million program, will be phased out between May and September because the law violates federal regulations requiring that women have a choice in medical care, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said during a trip to Houston.

The pressure is on.
Poor women hardest hit.
So the 50% of Texans who pay Federal income tax should stop paying immediately.
If you read down to about half way, you will find out it’s political thuggery...
The problem in Texas is being caused by lawmakers’ desire to prevent STATE funds from going to Planned Parenthood.
I am a Texan and I think this is great news. We need to get the feds out of the picture.
>> federal regulations requiring that women have a choice
In other words, legal killing.
The solution is simple. Offer these “poor women” on public assistence a one way bus ticket to Chicago, Illinois or Oakland California or Mexico. Have them take their families along. Take them off the welfare rolls and move along. Shiela Jackson Lee will lose most of her recipients.
Democrats’ war on women.
The 0bama regime’s relentless promotion of abortion is essential to the ‘population control’ required under the United Nation’s “Agenda 21”. Make no mistake, that’s what this regime’s fervor is all about.
And then the welfare recipients then move out of Texas. Wheres the downside here? (as far as Texas is concerned)
I agree. All states should get the Fed out of state affairs. If states were independent of the Fed, perhaps the Fed would go back to their original reason for existence ... protection of our borders and such. Just say’n
I agree. I’m sure they can come up with $40 million from increased oil and gas fracking revenues.
I’d pop for a few bus tickets.........
1. Citizens of state are taxed by fedgov.
2. Fedgov offers the state or citizens money, but only if they behave in the federally approved manner.
3. State or citizens refuse. Funds withheld.
SOLUTION: Don't send $ to fedgov in the first place. (Yes, laws need to change.)
All I know is now isn’t the time to go wobbly. Everyone needs to stand their ground.
Let me know when they stop funding illegal aliens and UNFPA.

U.S. Resumption of UNFPA Funding to Boost Womens Health and Rights
UNITED NATIONS, New York Yesterdays action by President Barack Obama to pave the way for the release of United States funding for UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, reminds the world of his commitment to womens health, rights and equality, according to UNFPA Executive Director Thoraya Ahmed Obaid.
This is a great day for women, girls and their families around the world, said Ms. Obaid. We warmly applaud this action by President Obama, which underlines his support to the protection of the lives and human dignity of women and girls in the poorest countries.
President Obama yesterday signed legislation containing a $50 million contribution to UNFPA. This puts in motion the restoration of U.S. funding for UNFPA, which had been suspended since 2002.
We need to get the feds out of education and highways too. It’s stupid to send money to DC and then to get some back. It’s all about control.
This is exactly the sort of tit for tat a true totalitarian gets involved in.
Obama hates Texas, and he’s always messing with Texas. Obama hates Catholics, and he’s messing with Catholics..
He makes me feel soooooo special.
