The Department of Health and Human Services is currently considering a waiver that would allow Texas to receive federal Medicaid family planning funds despite the state’s refusal to follow federal law by banning providers who offer abortion care, like Planned Parenthood, from receiving federal Medicaid family planning funds. Texas also wants HHS permission to impose dangerous and unlawful barriers that would jeopardize access to healthcare for minors and immigrants. People have until August 4 to submit comments to HHS. Under federal law, Medicaid patients are supposed to be guaranteed the ability to receive medical services from any qualified person or institution that provides such care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as the courts, has consistently upheld this right, and forbidden states from defunding a provider simply because they offer a legal medical service, such as abortion. Texas has already demonstrated that excluding qualified providers from the family planning network severely reduces low-income women’s access to care. Since 2011, the state has refused federal family planning money due to the fact that they would then be required to fund family planning clinics that offer abortion services.

On the anniversary of the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, advocates for abortion access fear that an increase in anti-abortion violence will be met with limited enforcement by the Trump administration, which has shown unprecedented support for restricting abortion access. Signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 26, 1994, the FACE Act helps to curb violence against abortion providers, clinics, staff and patients. The FACE Act criminalizes the use of force, the threat of force, or physical obstruction to intimidate, harm, or prevent someone from obtaining or providing reproductive health services. The law was passed during a surge of violence against reproductive healthcare providers in the 1990’s that culminated in the murder of Dr. David Gunn in Pensacola, Florida on March 10, 1993. Following Dr. Gunn’s death, Dr. George Tiller was shot on August 19, 1993 by Shelly Shannon, who has been called a “soldier” in the “Army of God,” an anti-abortion extremist group that claimed the killing of abortion providers as the only method to end abortion. The following July, Dr. John Bayard Britton and volunteer clinic escort Lt Col. James Barrett were murdered by anti-abortion extremist Paul Hill. On December 30, 1994 […]<div>
