"A Texas Story" – Wendy Davis for Governor

Exactly one year ago today, Wendy Davis began her historic filibuster of Texas Senate Bill 5, the most draconian anti-choice law in the country. And in the 12 months since, all of Wendy’s most dire warnings have come true.

Nearly half of Texas’ 44 abortion providers have been shut down. Abortion clinics in rural areas have been eliminated completely. And at least 14 more clinics are slated for shutdown by September unless they can somehow meet the irrational and arbitrary requirements of the bill.

But that’s not the worst part. The scariest thing is that Texas-style clinic shutdown bills are now spreading like wildfire. Louisiana just passed a bill that will shut down every clinic within five hours of New Orleans. Oklahoma passed a similar bill in May. And copycat bills are moving forward in other states across the country.

Huge sections of the country are on the verge of becoming a zero-access zone—exactly as Wendy Davis warned. Can you make a donation to help stop the spread of Texas-style clinic shutdown laws and to protect choice wherever it’s under attack?

Yes, I’ll make a donation to help defend the right to choose, including stopping the spread of Texas-style clinic shutdown laws.

The way these clinic shutdown laws work is that they require abortion providers to follow bizarre and often contradictory regulations that often are literally impossible to follow.

Take Louisiana’s clinic shutdown law. The bill requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital—even though there’s no medical justification for that whatsoever. But here’s the kicker: None of the hospitals in New Orleans will give admitting privileges to abortion providers! It’s the perfect catch-22.

Because of federal courts packed with right-wing judges, we can’t rely on the courts to protect our rights. Too many of these laws are going into effect, so it’s up to us to beat them back one state at a time.

A year ago today, Wendy Davis stood up and fought for women. Now it’s our turn.

Yes, I’ll make a donation to help defend the right to choose, including stopping the spread of Texas-style clinic shutdown laws.

Thank you for helping to make choice real for all women,

Ilyse G. Hogue
President, NARAL Pro-Choice America
