The Long Fight

Abortion rights have remained a contentious issue in the nation's largest state. In 2011, Republican state lawmakers voted to block all funding from the state's Medicaid family planning program, known as the Women's Health Program, from Planned Parenthood clinics. One day before the new law's signing, the health care provider announced it would be closing three of its clinics in the state due to that 2011 measure. (Photo: Planned Parenthood)
