Texas Asks Trump Administration for Money to Help Defund Planned Parenthood

Nika Knight, staff writer

Texas is moving forward with an unprecedented and bold request to the federal government: the state wants federal money to help it strip all public funding from Planned Parenthood.

If Texas is successful, other states are likely to follow suit.

"We're all terrified," Elizabeth Nash, senior state issue manager at the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute, told the Guardian. "This is really huge, if they let Texas do this."

They shouldn't be "terrified," they should be furious and be ready to wage a full on propaganda fight back, Pull out all the stops. Get every celebrity who believes in what Planned Parenhood does to use every bit of their media access to speak out forcefully. Question the motives of those advocating the defunding. Accuse them of hating women and wanting there to be more underfunded babies in the world and demand to know why. Call them names.
