Women in row! Support Women's Health in Texas
Time Range For Action Alert: 
January 30, 2019 to May 22, 2019

You can take action to urge the 86th Texas Legislature to continue to rebuild and augment the women’s healthcare safety net in Texas.  Numerous bills have been filed that impact women’s access to contraception and healthcare services, and we want you to contact your legislators to tell them how important this issue is to Texas women.

Background:

  • We need to expand access to preventive health and family planning services for women in this state.
  • The “Healthy Texas Women Program” is important in ensuring that women do not lose eligibility because of their age. (HB 606 and SB 189) would ensure this.
  • Every woman has a fundamental right to choose to obtain a safe and legal abortion.  The proposed “Whole Woman’s Health Act” (SB 150 - Rodriguez) would protect this right.
