Abortion Policy in Texas

With an anti-abortion majority at the Supreme Court, the future of abortion access is in greater peril than ever. We must take our power back right here at home and stop extremists from passing abortion restrictions in Texas — before they go to the courts.

Avow is tracking every bill related to abortion that has been filed during this session—follow along to stay up-to-date. 

Legislative Agenda

2021 Priority: Repeal the medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion
"Having to wait 24 hours after my initial appointment to get an abortion while also going back and forth from the court and the abortion clinic made it harder to avoid abuse in my relationship." – Cowanda Rusk, she/her, We Testify Storyteller
2021 Priority: Repeal the medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion
"My heart absolutely sank with fear when I was told that I would have to figure it all out again in order to actually get the procedure." – Stephanie Gomez, she/her, We Testify Storyteller
2021 Priority: Repeal the medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion
"I support every effort to make reproductive healthcare safer, but the overwhelming evidence shows that abortion restrictions do not improve safety or quality." – Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, she/her, Board Certified OB/GYN
2021 Priority: Repeal the medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion
"Getting a forced, unnecessary sonogram was incredibly patronizing and insulting. I didn't need to be talked down to and shamed; I just needed medical care." – Nick Lloyd, they/them, We Testify Storyteller
2021 Priority: Prioritize reproductive health policy and abortion in the state budget
"Bans on abortion coverage in health insurance—like all attacks on abortion access—impact low-income Black, Indigenous, and people of color first." – Erika Galindo, she/her, Lilith Fund Organizing Program Manager
2021 Priority: Enact public health policy to benefit all Texans
“The shaming, the guilting, this open practice of misogyny is not only beyond distasteful but a total disregard for our rights as women, as humans.”– Tohan Omorodion, she/her, Clinic Access Support Network Volunteer
2021 Priority: Enact public health policy to benefit all Texans
"Young people's reproductive freedom is rooted in honoring their bodily autonomy. That's why teens in Texas deserve inclusive, medically accurate sex education and family planning services, including birth control." – Rosann Mariappuram, she/her, Jane's Due Process Executive Director
