Target: Anthony Kennedy, U.S. Supreme Court Justice
Goal: Prevent the closure of over thirty abortion clinics threatened by excessively restrictive laws.
Over thirty abortion clinics will close if a proposed law that prevents doctors from performing abortions in a non-hospital setting is allowed to stand. Urge the Supreme Court to vote against this law and stand up for women’s rights.
The law would force clinics to upgrade their facilities to hospital-level standards, even though the majority of abortions do not require hospital-level care. Doctors would not be allowed to perform abortions in any clinic that does not match these extreme requirements. Statistics suggest that over 900,000 women live further than 150 miles from the remaining abortion clinics. This limits the options for many women and may prevent them from exercising their right to choose.
Currently, only half of the previously available abortion clinics are operational under Texas law. If this law is allowed to stand, only ten clinics will remain in all of Texas. Sign below to protect a woman’s right to choose.
Dear Justice Kennedy,
Over half of all Texas abortion clinics have been shut down due to an outrageous law. This severely limits the options for over 900,000 women. We urge you to vote against this law and support a woman’s right to choose.
Per Texas law, all abortion clinics must adhere to hospital-level standards. While we understand the importance of standards in healthcare, most abortions do not require hospital-level treatment. The law would only prevent women from accessing safe and affordable abortions.
We urge you to vote against this law and support a woman’s right to choose.
