Turner Reacts To Today’s Senate Hearing: “Latest Sad Example of Texas Republicans Attacking Women’s Basic Right to Make Their Own Healthcare Decisions.”

Arlington, TX — State Representative Chris Turner (HD 101 – Grand Prairie) released the following statement in response to today’s Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing:

“Today’s sham hearing is just the latest sad example of Texas Republicans attacking women’s basic right to make their own healthcare decisions. In a hearing in which even the most biased and virulent critics of Planned Parenthood are forced to admit that they have no knowledge of a single law being broken and the Attorney General testifies but can’t even answer basic legal questions, it’s clear that these investigations are nothing more than witch hunts intended to ultimately deny women basic healthcare services.”
