As an employee of Texas Health and Human Services Commission and have been through an extensive and required training about SNAP benefits and Medicaid for men and women. I have learned a lot about what Texas healthcare can do for women and children. It provides many wonderful and helpful benefits for women. Some programs have requirements that the individual has to follow to be able to obtain and keep benefits. However for women’s benefits they are able to receive free health screenings, birth control, counseling, and much more. Generally low income women use these services and are a necessity to this state. If we didn’t have these services to offer for women, there would be a crisis on hand. Women wouldn’t be as well as informed or if someone who couldn’t afford to go the doctor and if Texas didn’t have these services a women could have a disease or a cancer go undetected or a teenager or young woman not taking birth control maybe having multiple children without the proper care and information needed. Taking away these services would not be in the best interest for this state or government.
