THE CULTURE WARS ARE A ROUT:

Texas Drops Planned Parenthood From HIV Prevention Program (Alexa Ura, Dec. 22, 2015, Texas Tribune)

Amid an ongoing battle over Planned Parenthood's participation in the state Medicaid program, Texas health officials are cutting off funding to a Planned Parenthood affiliate for an HIV prevention program.

In a notice received by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast late Monday, an official with the Department of State Health Services informed the Houston-based provider that it would not renew its contract for HIV prevention services.

The long-standing grant, which funds HIV testing and prevention services, was set to expire on Dec. 31, according to the notice which was obtained by The Texas Tribune.

"There will be no further renewals of this contract," a DSHS official wrote in the notice to Planned Parenthood.
