House passes Budget, Texas weeps.

Women's Health Raped by the Senate
A bill to expand preventive health and family planning services for lower-income women won tentative approval from the Senate on Wednesday, but only after it was amended to exclude Planned Parenthood from funding and prohibit health care providers from giving rape victims access to morning-after birth control pills. (Planned Parenthood has 82 clinics in the state, 7 of which perform abortions.) (Dallas Morning News)
