The Dallas Morning News: Hutchison Backs Planned Parenthood In Funding Dispute
Breaking with her fellow Texas Republicans, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison defended Planned Parenthood on Thursday and said the state should work to get back federal funding for the Medicaid Women's Health Program. "The governor needs to sit down with the federal government and work it out, so that we can have our share … of money from Medicaid to help low-income women have their health care services," Hutchison told MSNBC (Collins Walsh, 3/22).
