Texas - Texas is set to become the latest and largest state to cut funding to Planned Parenthood.

A major health care overhaul passed by the state legislature is now headed for Governor Rick Perry's desk.

It blocks Planned Parenthood from receiving about $38 million in state family planning money, and also blocks it from taking part in the Medicaid Women's Health Program.

The bill also seeks to push the federal government to convert Texas' medicaid program into a block grant.
