TFN President: Reproductive Health Care Is Essential Health Care

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Texas Freedom Network President Kathy Miller has the following statement on Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton essentially threatening abortion providers with fines and jail time if they provide abortion services following Gov. Abbott’s executive order temporarily barring elective surgeries and procedures:

“It’s completely unsurprising to see this attorney general use any excuse to push his ideological agenda. But the truth is reproductive health care is essential health care. There are many reasons women decide to have an abortion in the already limited time window state law allows, and a delay means denying them the constitutional right to make those decisions in a safe, timely manner with the help of their doctors.”

Let’s be frank—#HB6 and #SB7 are designed to make it harder for Texans to vote. They are rooted in and grown out of fear. Stop voter suppression. #txlege pic.twitter.com/FHHH…
