The study ignores two major women's health programs that provide family planning and other preventive health services to Texas women. It does not consider data from the Department of State Health Services’ Family Planning Program, which served 55,869 in 2014. It overlooks data from the Expanded Primary Health Care (EPHC) Program, which served 147,083 women in 2014. The EPHC omission is particularly egregious because this was the conduit for an infusion of $100 million in new funding for women's health approved by the Legislature in 2013.
