The 2017 legislative session begins in less than two months, and anti-choice lawmakers are already filing harmful abortion restrictions — from a bill requiring burial or cremation of tissue following an abortion, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, to legislation that would repeal the fetal anomaly exception in Texas’ 20-week abortion ban.
These are just a handful of the attacks we’ll be fighting this session, and we want YOU to join us in taking action! To stay on top of all things reproductive health and rights, sign up for our Legislative Action Team and we’ll keep you updated on bills that affect reproductive health and alert you to opportunities to testify and rally at the Texas Capitol.
We’ll also share opportunities to act in your own communities — from visits to your local elected officials’ district offices, visibility actions like protests and banner drops, online campaigns, letter writing events, phone banking, and other activities. You’ll also get exclusive invites to webinars and conference calls.
To kick off our series of actions, we’re hosting a Telephone Town Hall on November 28. During the phone call, you’ll hear from our our staff about our proactive policy agenda for the upcoming legislative session, challenges we’re facing and a number of ways you can get involved. To get the call-in number, sign up here.
NARAL Pro-Choice Texas fights every day for reproductive freedom for all Texans and we’re so glad to have you on our side!
