This Monday, stand with #TexasWomenForever

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Alison Turkos, Co-Chair of the Board of the New York Abortion Access Fund. When she’s not breaking down barriers to abortion access she’s probably talking about how much she loves Vermont.

I fund abortions in New York and I do so proudly, but let the record show: I’ve never been to Texas. I’ve never spoken to a Texan who is unable to get an appointment at a clinic because of the wait or logistics, like travel. I’ve never had to tell someone that unfortunately I can’t fund their procedure because I’ve reached my budget for the week or that I can only pledge $150 towards their abortion when ...

Report finds Latinas face human rights violations in Texas

The Texas legislature has made a name for itself as a foe of reproductive justice. The state has passed, then struck down, then reinstated some of the most draconian laws designed to prevent people from accessing abortion care. Of course, these tend to be low-income people of color, immigrants, and otherwise marginalized people.

Fifth Circuit reinstates Texas anti-choice restrictions

Late yesterday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Tuesday’s injunction by the lower court of Texas’ draconian anti-choice law. The three- judge panel, all appointed by President George W. Bush, granted the state’s request to reinstate the law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital (within 30 miles) in order to provide legal abortion care. As we’ve previously covered, the Texas anti-choice law will lead to the closure of nearly one-third of Texas abortion care providers, which as Judge Yaefel noted in his decision on Tuesday, “does nothing to protect women’s health.”

Support Wendy Davis’ campaign for Texas governor!

Last week, feminist filibustering shero, badass former teen mama, and Texas state representative announced that she is running for Governor of Texas in 2014. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot, Davis’ expected opponent – a strongly anti-choice one at that – already has a ton of campaign funding, and it’s really important that Wendy Davis is able to raise some funds too.

We’re super excited to join an effort to raise funds for Wendy’s campaign today.

She can’t do it alone, folks, and electoral campaigns: they cost a lot of money! Hiring the best campaign advisors, getting savvy media folks, printing signs and flyers, and doing ...

Wendy Davis is running for Texas governor!

Updated: We’ve been hoping for and anticipating this news for a while, but it’s finally here: Wendy Davis just announced that she is running for Texas governor:

“Thirty-two years ago, I walked across this stage, the granddaughter of farmers from Muleshoe, Texas, who could only afford to rent the land they farmed,” Davis said at the Wiley G. Thomas Coliseum in Haltom City, Texas, the same venue where she received her high school diploma.

“I had no real idea what the future looked like. Today, I see it pretty clearly. It’s looking right at me. It’s you. It’s all of you. And all of you deserve to have your voices heard. Because our future is brightest when ...
