Across the country, abortion rights are under attack. This May, Texas lawmakers passed Senate Bill 8, an extreme bill that bans abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy – before many even know they are pregnant. This hostile bill also gives private citizens the authority to enforce the law for anyone providing abortion care or helping someone get access. In addition, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case on Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, the outcome of which could threaten abortion access throughout the U.S. Extremists are determined to legislate abortion out of existence, even though the majority of Americans support abortion access.
Rest assured, our resolve to provide safe, compassionate abortion care is stronger than ever. Abortion is still legal in Texas and all of our clinics are still open. We can also assure you that local and national activists (including ourselves) will do everything in their power to protect your reproductive rights and prevent these laws from taking effect.
If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, Whole Woman’s Health staff are here to care for you with open hearts and open arms, including at the new medication-only clinic that just opened in North Texas. You can call us anytime at 877-835-1090 or click here to book an appointment.
It has become abundantly clear how fragile and limited access to abortion is, so now is the time to rise up. If you are outraged by these dangerous restrictions, you can protect abortion access with a donation to Whole Woman’s Health Alliance or a gift to the Stigma Relief Fund. Join us to fight back against this 6-week ban and to ensure that every person can access the safe abortion care they deserve. Every dollar helps – even as little as $15.
