Video: Lawmakers Unswayed by Pleas to Fund Family Planning Services

Hundreds rallied this week to preserve funds for Planned Parenthood's family planning services, but their pleas did not sway conservative lawmakers. “They can expect less or even zero funding for their organization this session," says state Rep. Sid Miller, R-Stephenville.

Planned Parenthood is under attack on several fronts this session. Texas lawmakers are considering a mandatory abortion sonogram bill and stripping the organization of its family planning funds from the Women's Health Program. Hundreds rallied on Tuesday to support the organization, but their pleas did not sway conservative lawmakers. “They can expect less or even zero funding for their organization this session," says state Rep. Sid Miller, R-Stephenville.
