Post-Roe Info + Action Center

On this page, you’ll find information on what abortion access looks like post-Roe in Texas.
While there is still much uncertainty in the wake of Roe v. Wade’s fall, there is one thing we do know: Our fight to make abortion permanently legal, safe, and accessible for everyone cannot and will not stop. Our care for our communities cannot and will not stop.

Status of Abortion Access in Texas

On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade with their ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, decimating our last nationwide legal line of defense for abortion access.
On July 3, 2022, abortion clinics in Texas ceased operations, and by Aug. 25, 2022, our “trigger law” was officially in effect. The law bans abortion from fertilization and criminalizes any attempt by a medical professional to perform, induce, or attempt an abortion. It also increases the penalties for performing an abortion up to life in prison.
In December 2023, Kate and Justin Cox sued the state of Texas for the right to have an abortion under the medical exemptions to the ban. The Texas Supreme Court ruled against Kate, forcing her to flee her home state for abortion care.

Avow: Quiz for a Cause for Abortion Rights with Geeks Who Drink

When:
Where:Butterfly Bar
Austin, TX

It’s been quite a year since the Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs v. JWHO to overturn Roe v. Wade, and trigger legislation here in Texas to ban abortion completely. On top of that, this legislative session has been especially grueling. While abortion rights aren’t the main target this year, these attacks on LGBTQ Texans – especially trans Texans – are heartbreaking.

We all need a little break, a little fun, and a little trivia! Suggested donation: $5 per person.

Tips & Tools for Talking About Abortion

This section will be updated as we learn more about what a post-Roe world in Texas will mean for the community.

TFN President Val Benavidez’s Statement

“For years, we have known that the day when abortion access would be challenged, and possibly stolen, at the Supreme Court was coming. Still, it is devastating to learn that the far-right’s totalitarian vision for the future has come to fruition with the U.S. Supreme Court’s official ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“We know that the majority of the country opposes abortion bans, but far-right politicians continue to criminalize and weaponize our bodies for political power and control–a tactic we’re all too familiar with in Texas, where a six-week abortion ban has been in effect since September 2021. We also know that while Roe deserved to be protected, legality alone has never been enough to provide equitable access to abortion care for Black, rural, LGBTQIA+, and other historically marginalized communities. We will never stop fighting for policies that let all people know they are trusted to make their own pregnancy decisions.

“Abortion is healthcare and it should be a protected, accessible right for everyone. While today we mourn this loss and the Court’s failure, we must transform our grief into action by caring for our communities, taking our rage to the ballot box, and continuing to fight in the courts, in Congress, and at the state legislature for changes that protect our right to abortion once and for all.”
