Men for Choice

It’s time for Men For Choice! Our male board members are helping us throw fundraising happy hours in Dallas, Houston AND Austin this spring. But Men For Choice isn’t just an event for men – all are welcome and all are appreciated.

That’s because – when it comes to the movement for reproductive freedom, we’re in this together. We’re pro-choice Texans of all backgrounds, identities, genders and perspectives. Our differences are a source of strength as we fight back together, making our shared vision all the more powerful.

Join us!

Texans for Access

We’ve launched a new storytelling project, Texans for Access, to let the world know that Texans support access to abortion and support each other’s decision to have an abortion. Watch Wendy Davis tell her story below and check out other stories of support and people’s experience with having an abortion.

This is a guest post from Chelsea Paquette.  2013 was a remarkable year for me. I started the year off feeling generally uninspired and burned out in my career. I was also unhappy socially and was exhausted by my chronic love-hate
