The Texas state legislature has approved the Senate Bill 7 Conference Committee Report that would revoke the taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business. With the actions by the state House and Senate, the measure now heads to pro-life Gov. Rick Perry for his signature.
“This will defund Planned Parenthood, stop taxpayer funding of elective abortions, and regulate adult stem cell research in Texas,” says Texas Alliance for Life. “The final step is for pro-life Gov. Rick Perry to sign this bill into law, which will defund Planned Parenthood $34 million or more over the biennium.”
The passage of the measure came after a Friday setback, when the Texas House of Representatives could not hold session because there was not a quorum. Legislators in the House were supposed to consider Senate Bill 7, a bill that, if passed, will defund Planned Parenthood of $34 million or more over the next two years.
