NO To HB 1929 - Protect Our Care And Reproductive Rights
Today we're elevating a call to action from Planned Parenthood Texas Votes, NARAL Pro-Choice Texas, Jane's Due Process, Texas Equal Access Fund, The Lilith Fund For Reproductive Equity, and The Afiya Center.
The House State Affairs Committee is meeting today and will consider HB 1929, a bill that would ban local governments from partnering with trusted community health care providers, including Planned Parenthood.
The ability for these providers to offer needed health care and education, plus care that includes providing cancer screenings, STI testing, and HIV-prevention and Zika-prevention outreach to at-risk populations is too important to our communities. We are all impacted by this harmful bill.
Please see the post below and take action today to tell committee members to reject this bill!
