Each petition signature generates a message to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, your state senator, and representative demanding they protect abortion rights this legislative session.
While Texans reel from compounding crises like the COVID-19 pandemic and winter storm, our communities are facing another life threatening issue. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and other anti-abortion legislators are threatening Texans’ healthcare access with their attempts to ban abortion in our state.
For decades, extremist anti-abortion politicians have created medically unnecessary barriers to abortion care and ignored the health needs of Texans. While conservatives pat themselves on the back for pushing through legislation aimed at controlling our bodies, people of color, low-income Texans, and immigrants pay the price.
No one should face fear, stigma, or unnecessary barriers when seeking out reproductive healthcare and deciding on how to plan their families, and political agendas should never control a person’s ability to receive medical care.
Sign this petition to demand Dan Patrick and other state lawmakers stop placing their extreme anti-abortion agendas before community health. Texans deserve better.
