Thank you.

Friends, Advocates, and Patients,

First of all, thank you. Thank you to everyone who joined Whole Woman’s Health and NARAL Pro-Choice Texas at the Texas Capitol yesterday, sending a sea of tangerine-colored shirts as a message to the Senate Health and Human Services Committee that reproductive healthcare matters to women. Whether you testified, tweeted, took photos, contacted your senator, or listened to testimony, you helped our cause; you helped and represent the women of Texas. 

A vote has been held with the HHSC committee, and therefore our fight against these erroneous and restrictive measures is far from over. Senate Bill 5 was voted out of committee, meaning that the Senate will have a debate and vote on the floor on Tuesday. Each one of these legislators needs to hear our voices. Their votes determine whether women in Texas face a public health crisis or not in the next year.

We want just as many or more tangerine-clad allies to help us quietly protest these bills in the Senate Chamber. We want to let these senators know that passing restrictive laws on abortion care is not what Texans need.  

WWH will let you know when this hearing schedule is fully posted so that we can create a plan of action. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates on these bills. 

Thank you again for all of your support. Each and every one of you is an important ally in ultimately helping women receive the care they need. Join us as we move onward. 

 Sincerely,

Whole Woman’s Health

  1. Hello – I am a scientist who is studying the side effects of prenatal ultrasound. There is much misconception in the public that prenatal sonography is safe, and I wanted to leave this message to your group because I was hoping it would reach women who would listen since it was mentioned that reproductive health matters here.

    I started my blog (www.fetalsonosafety.com) as a nonprofit sort of educational thing to help highlight research articles I’ve found on the topic to the public to help raise awareness to this topic.

    Best of luck with your endeavors.. as a male I am not faced with the full gamut of women’s issues, but just from the ultrasound side alone I’ve born witness to more than my fair share of obstacles.. Take care –
