Catherine Frazier, Gov. Rick Perry's press secretary, today issued the following statement regarding U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel's ruling granting Planned Parenthood's motion for a preliminary injunction of Texas Women's Health Program rules:

"Texas has a long history of protecting life, and we are confident in Attorney General Abbott's appeal to defend the will of Texans and our state law, which prohibits taxpayer funds from supporting abortion providers and affiliates in the Women's Health Program. We will continue to work with the Attorney General to pursue all available legal options."
