Did you know that the bills that most impact abortion access in your community are decided at the state level? Texas lawmakers are taking up dozens of abortion and reproductive health bills—and bills are now quickly moving through the legislative process.
You can follow along with our new Abortion Access Bill Tracker to keep up with committee hearings, bill markups, and all things legislative.
Here’s a preview of what we’re following:
||Abortion is Health Care Act: Repeals the medically unnecessary restrictions that push abortion out of reach.|
||6-week abortion ban: That’s before most people know they’re pregnant!|
||Rosie’s Law: Restores abortion coverage in Texas insurance plans, including Medicaid.|
||Death penalty for abortion: A bill that criminalizes all abortion care and would subject providers to the death penalty.|
||Access to contraception: Four bills that make it easier for every Texan to get birth control.|
||Fake clinics: Requires patients to receive counseling from illegitimate crisis pregnancy centers and creates a statewide database of patients.|
||Ending harassment: Two bills that would protect clinics from protestors who disrupt access to care and help providers keep their home addresses private.|
||30+ more abortion restrictions: From restrictions on medication abortion to a “trigger” law that would ban abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned, we need to push back on every anti-abortion bill in the House and Senate.|
Tell your lawmakers that you support access to abortion and reproductive healthcare and OPPOSE abortion restrictions that hurt Texans.
