Editor, the Advocate:
Thank you, Texas Republican lawmakers. You closed two-thirds of Planned Parenthood Clinics. As a result, Texas is booming with unwanted pregnancies. There are 30,000 new unwanted pregnancies in the Texas Rio Grande area alone. These are poor families who will most likely rely further on social services - the thing you conservatives hate the most.
This is what happens when the very people who need it the most lose access to free or low-cost birth control. On the brighter side, you are breeding more future Democrats. Conservatives, I think that's what we call "shooting yourself in the foot."
