dc.description.abstractThis report explores the impact that the 2011 family planning budget cuts in Texas had on women's health clinics. Specifically, the report focuses on how Hidalgo County Planned Parenthood broke away from the national organization as a result of these cuts, in order to better serve the community. In 2014, the clinics re-opened as an independent nonprofit: Access Esperanza. The report looks at several factors dealing with the broader issue of reproductive healthcare in the Lower Rio Grande Valley: barriers faced by women when accessing healthcare, abortion as an ideology, government accountability and the evolution of Access Esperanza's disaffiliation from Planned Parenthood.en
