Endorsement Alert: Abortion Rights Champion

Rochelle Garza for Attorney General

Ken Paxton’s Most Notable Moments Attacking Abortion Rights

Avow Political Director Caroline Duble issued the following statement: 

“We’re thrilled to announce our endorsement of Rochelle Garza for Attorney General in the Democratic primary. Rochelle was the lawyer who secured justice for Jane Doe, the minor in immigration detention who was unjustly denied an abortion by the Trump Administration and subjected to anti-abortion coercion. 

Ken Paxton has used the office of attorney general to attack abortion access in Texas and beyond. We need a champion who is invested in helping Texans, not harming them. 

The choice was clear in our decision to endorse Rochelle. She is a true progressive leader who will not compromise on abortion rights. Ken Paxton has led the charge to uphold the worst abortion restrictions in Texas and the nation. It’s imperative that we replace him with someone who truly understands the damage that has been done and is ready to undo that harm. Rochelle is clear about her values and understands how abortion access is intertwined with voting rights, racial, health and economic justice. Avow trusts that Rochelle will get to work on day one to protect and expand access to abortion care.”



SB 8 bans abortion as early as 6 weeks and puts a $10,000 bounty on anyone who helps someone get abortion care. Now more than ever, we need unapologetic abortion rights advocates to lay the groundwork to defeat anti-abortion lawmakers.

Chip in to organize Texans to restore abortion access in our state. The organizing we do today determines the gains we make in 2022.
