WACO -- A new law is now in place forbidding taxpayer money from funding clinics connected to abortion-related services.

The law will affect some 130,000 women who are part of the Texas Womens Health Program that provides contraceptives, cancer screenings and basic health care at Planned Parenthood and other clinics.

Local officials tell us women have until April 30 to receive affordable health care before the funding stops.

"Unfortunately already we have a pretty long waiting list to get in because of the cuts of last year, but we're hoping that women will come in and get the birth control that they need and can still provide to them. And hope that the governor reverses this terrible decision," said Felicia Goodman, Planned Parenthood director of community affairs.

Goodman says *after April 30 they will try to maintain the lowest fee's possible but as of now they say their hands are tied.
