WACO -- "Enough is enough" is the message spread by Central Texas women today at a rally against what they say is the state's continued attacks on womens health care.

The Women's Health Express stopped in Waco hoping to send a message to the government to reverse course and save the Medicaid women's health program.

In a week's time, they will find out how much of a splash this event made.

"The women's program currently is set to end on March 14th. So it is our hope that this, these rallies all across the state will send that message to the governor and he will reverse the just devastating decision to deny women health care," said Felicia Goodman, director of community affairs McLennan County Planned Parenthood. 

The cuts will only affect health care services not abortions.

In turn affecting an estimated 130,000 women in Texas and 1700 of those women are in Waco.
