Great article about a Republican Governor that Expanded Medicaid. Watch John Oliver explain why it’s important to vote for leaders that will expand Medicaid. That will be on my agenda when I’m in the House. Always encouraging Governor Abbott to expand Medicaid.

Planned Parenthood deserves to be funded, for the following reasons:
-Affordable Pregnancy Care (Planned Parenthood is there for you from the moment of conception to the moment of birth and after care as well.)
-Affordable Pap Smear and Pelvic Exams to Screen for STDs, STIs, and Pre-cancerous cells
-Vaccines to Prevent Cervical Cancer
-Affordable Mammograms for Early Detection of Breast Cancer
-Affordable and Accessible Contraceptives
And so much more….Click on the link above to read a great article about how and why Texans should fight to keep Planned Parenthood funded. I will fight to re-instate Planned Parenthood in the Texas Legislature so all Texans have access to affordable family care.
