Stand with Texas Women
Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst are attacking the constitutional rights of women in Texas. Now we must stand together again to demand justice for all women!
Tuesday, the Stand with Texas Women bus tour kicked off its route around Texas to rally supporters across the state in support of reproductive rights as time draws nearer to the final vote on the omnibus antichoice bills.
Accompanied with allied Democratic legislators, Senator Wendy Davis has lead orange-clad crowds by the thousands in Austin and Houston yesterday, while stopping in her hometown Fort Worth today.
The momentum has grown and echoed across the state by bringing the Capitol action to the streets and homes of the many Texas women who will be affected by the clinic closures that will be brought by HB 2 and SB 1. As the tour goes on, we will continue to see this highlighted, especially as the tour plans to make stops in the Rio Grande Valley and El Paso.
