City of Austin Termination Services

Dec 4th, 2009 | By brent_bullock | Category: Lead Story

I hope that title stirs your imagination.  There are all kinds of services provided by the City of Austin.  Most of them are legitimate for a civil community.  Yet, we’ve recently come to realize that some of the “services” provided by the City of Austin are more like a hit man contract from the City of Corruption, Chicago.

Termination services “required” by the City of Austin were picked up by the Travis County Healthcare District (TCHD) in 2005.  We’re talking about pregnancy termination services.  We’re talking about abortion; the termination of innocent human life.  And we’re talking to the tune of $450,000 per year.

Actual expenses for “termination services” paid by TCHD from Oct 2008 - Sep 2009 were $282,313.  While I am grateful it wasn’t $450,000, it does represent over 600 aborted human babies.  Travis County had 3,748 abortions and 16,152 live births in 2006. 

TCHD is providing free “termination services” to low income women that qualify for the Medical Assistance Program (MAP) or State of Texas Medicaid.  Your Travis County property tax payments fund these abhorrent termination services.  With the City of Austin contract expiring, we have a great opportunity to terminate taxpayer funded ”termination services”.  Here are some urgent actions for you to take.
