We’re infuriated that — yet again — we have to go back to the courts to plead with them to protect the people of Texas from extremists who have hijacked the state legislature.
Access to abortion in the state of Texas is under attack by anti-choice, mostly white, mostly male politicians who do not represent the kindness, decency, diversity, and shared values of the majority of Texans.
Make no mistake: We are in the majority. Recent polling shows that most Texans oppose Senate Bill 8 (SB8), one of the most extreme abortion bans this country has ever seen.
We also know from firsthand experience with the people who walk through our doors every day all the ways this law will devastate communities across the state of Texas. Even though SB8 doesn’t take effect until September 1st, its impact is already being felt by frontline providers and Texans seeking compassionate abortion care.
We’ve beaten back these attacks before. We can and will do it again. Will you help? These are dark days, and it’s easy to feel like the extremists in the Texas legislature are running the table, especially when they’re using the current special session to introduce even more abortion limits. But it’s useful to remember that the reason they’re so obsessed with devising more and more extreme ways of trying to block abortion rights and access is that we keep beating them.
At the heart of this battle is a stark choice — between a nightmarish future in which extremist politicians succeed in banning abortion and turning Texans against each other, or a much brighter one in which people facing unplanned pregnancies can get the advice, support, and care they need.
Texans have made it clear which future they want.
It’s the one we offer and the one we’re fighting for.
SB8 goes into effect in 41 days, and we need your help to take a stand and defend the rights of Texans. Join our efforts to BLOCK this ban and donate now.
