Whole Woman’s Health: Texas Policy Evaluation Project Briefing Coverage

Yesterday, Whole Woman’s Health along with NARAL Pro Choice Texas and the Texas Policy Evaluation Project, held a briefing at the Capitol to publicize the impact that cuts in family planning and restrictions on access to abortion care services have had on women in the state of Texas. Representative Jessica Farrar also revealed her intent to file a repeal bill to eliminate the forced 24 hour waiting period between an ultrasound and their procedure.

There has been a lot of press about the briefing and the repeal bill. I have pasted below links to a number of articles that are covering this story along with a link to Capitol Tonight which aired lastnight and featured clips from the briefing and an interview with Dr. Grossman and Dr. Potter from the Texas Policy Evaluation Project.
