AUSTIN - Today marks the official rollout of the consolidated Healthy Texas Women program in accordance with a budget rider and the unanimous recommendation of the Sunset Advisory Commission to better integrate preventive health services for Texas women.
"SCOTUS has failed to enforce basic medical standards that all women expect and deserve to receive," said Red State Women Executive Director Cari Christman. "After today's decision, every surgical procedure other than an abortion is held to higher medical standard. To single out the healthcare of women and place convenience and politics over safety and common sense is intolerable. Red State Women will continue to call out those who seek to politicize this very personal matter and jeopardize the health of women and the unborn."
