The 2021 session of the Texas Legislature will commence today as state House and Senate lawmakers gather in Austin for the next 140 days to craft and pass legislation. We call on these bodies to boldly pass legislation abolishing abortion in Texas to provide equal protection under the law to all persons in our state, born and unborn. Too long have lawmakers compromised with unconstitutional court rulings in attempts to incrementally end abortion. This is a time for courage, boldness, and justice. Some legislators are already rising to the call to protect the most vulnerable among us. We look forward to sharing more with you soon.
