Lt. Governor Dewhurst Statement on the 5th Circuit’s Decision Regarding Women’s Health Program

AUSTIN— Lt. Governor Dewhurst today released the following statement on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to vacate a preliminary injunction that would allow Planned Parenthood to continue receiving funding under the Women's Health Program:

“The decision by the 5th Circuit sends a strong message to the Obama Administration that Texans’ right to protect life and the wellness of thousands of women will not be compromised. The ruling is a victory for states’ rights, the sanctity of life and Texas’ commitment to defending the unborn. Texas will continue to provide women with the preventative health care they need and fight any attempt by the Obama Administration to impede on our state sovereignty.”
