Perry vows to explore legal options in Planned Parenthood case
Gov. Rick Perry is responding to a federal court's decision to grant Planned Parenthood a
temporary injunction; effectively stopping the state from pulling funding from clinics affiliated with abortion providers.
In a statement, press secretary Catherine Frazier said:
“Texas has a long history of protecting life, and we are confident in Attorney General Abbott’s appeal to defend the will of Texans and our state law, which prohibits taxpayer funds from supporting abortion providers and affiliates in the Women’s Health Program. We will continue to work with the Attorney General to pursue all available legal options.”
