Statement on Planned Parenthood and Travis County Court decision

Dec 31, 2012


AUSTIN—Lt. Governor David Dewhurst today released the following statement after the Travis County District Court decided to deny Planned Parenthood’s temporary restraining order that would have allowed the organization to participate in the Texas Women's Health Program:

"Today's ruling is a victory for states’ rights, the sanctity of life and Texas’ commitment to defending the unborn.  The Texas Women's Health Program will provide women with the preventative health care they depend on without sacrificing our state's values."
