Demand public hearings across Texas

Even as we celebrate Independence Day in 2013, Texas women are still fighting for their rights!

Politicians in Austin are blocking Texans from speaking out against harmful legislation that would deny Texas women the right to make their own private medical decisions, and essentially end access to safe and legal abortion in the state.

During a hearing on July 2 before the State Affairs Committee, the chairman cut off testimony at midnight, denying more than a thousand Texans who had signed up to testify the opportunity to speak out. We will not be silenced.

Texas legislators must stop playing politics with women's health. Speak up now — urge legislators to schedule public hearings across the state to support the fair democratic process that Texans value.

Let Texans speak

Dear [Decision Maker],

The whole nation is watching as legislators in Austin continue to block Texans from speaking out on important legislation. This isn't the fair democratic process that we value in Texas.

I urge Chairwoman Jane Nelson of the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee to hold public hearings across the state. Texans need to have their voices heard on harmful legislation that would deny Texas women the right to make their own private medical decisions, and essentially end access to safe and legal abortion in the state.



I urge Texas legislators to stop interfering with women's private medical decisions and to respect the fair democratic process that we all value.

Please schedule public hearings across the state, so that Texans can have their voices heard.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
