Thousands Of Texas Women Lose Health Care!

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?

Author: John Liming - American Liberal Times

I am an American Man, 72-years-old, and a Veteran of The U.S. Military. I have served honorably in both The United States Army (National Guard) and The United States Air Force for a total of seven years and three months active duty during what is now known as The Vietnam Era. I am a concerned citizen and refer to myself as "A Crazy Left Wing Liberal Nut Case with occasional Right Wing Conservative tendencies. I am particularly concerned and grieved about the way our beloved America seems to have become so politically divided over the past few years to the point where hardly anyone seems to be able to get along or to work together and where mutual vilification seems to be a spectator sport of some kind. I am particular fearful that we might get to the point, in our internal power struggles where we would be a One Party Nation. That, in my opinion, would be a total disaster and that is what I fear certain members of the element generally known as The "Christian" Conservative Right may have in mind.
