On June 26, Senate Democrats led by Senator Wendy Davis wrapped up a 13-hour filibuster to save 37 health centers and protect the right of every woman in Texas to make her own medical decisions. They courageously stood on the floor of the Texas State Capitol and stopped a bill that would have effectively outlawed abortion for most women in Texas.
But the fight is far from over. Texas Governor Rick Perry has called another special session to try once more to pass his abortion ban. Over the past few weeks, thousands of women and men in Texas have spoken out, testified, protested, and flooded the state capitol to try to stop this outrageous legislation.
Sen. Davis spoke for them and for everyone who cares about the future of women's health and rights in Texas.
Add your name to our note thanking Sen. Davis for her extraordinary courage, resolve, and determination in continuing to defend every woman's right to make her own medical decisions.
