Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement regarding the state district court's decision to deny Planned Parenthood's request to participate in the Texas Women's Health Program:

"This is great news for Texas women and further proves that Planned Parenthood's case attempting to derail the Texas Women's Health Program lacks merit and is nothing more than a desperate move by an organization more concerned with obtaining taxpayer money than with helping women get care. With this ruling, our state can continue caring for Texas women."
