Lawmakers in The Great State of Texas are reported to have signed a “Rule” that officially bans Planned parenthood and other health care providers for women from participating in their “Texas Women’s Health Program.” (WHP).
I have observed, over the years, that where there is a great outcry against anything suspected of supporting abortion, there is usually a heavy influence of The Far Right Religious Fringe involved somewhere along the way.
I have absolutely no way of knowing for certain whether any of this Christianized ideology is involved in that decision in Texas and Texas is certainly privileged as Americans to vote whatever they want to vote into law according to The Constitution– but I, personally, find this kind of seemingly discompassionate legislation extremely discomforting to say the least.
There are some devout “Christian” types who have reportedly gotten the notion into their heads that Planned Parenthood is some kind of Abortion Mill and so I guess they spend a lot of their time and energy fighting against it.
Does anybody even care that Planned parenthood provides needed cancer screenings and other health services for as many as 130,000 lower-income Texas women?
Does anybody care that many of these 130,000 women will now be left without the necessary health care that might even save their lives? Are they now to just be cast out into the streets of Life to fend for themselves?
So does this new Law down there mean that there will be a resurgence in the “Midwife” business? Will mysterious, dark and questionable “Back Alley” abortion clinics make their sinister reappearance on the American Scene as the religious purists go about the business all over America of destroying support for legitimate agencies? Is all this conjecture? What will these women do now? Does anybody care?
