Sorry (not sorry) this blog will be all about the actions going on in Austin this weekend, re: HB60 and HB16.
It is my firm belief that reproductive freedoms are what allow women to have true economic freedom as well.
Most of you know that about me, some may not. (Although I advertise being smart, sassy, and liberal as much as possible.)
I am going to be in Austin tomorrow for the protest. I want my lawmakers to look me in the face and look into the faces of as many women and men that oppose this bill as possible, if they’re going to vote for it. I want them to tell me that it’s okay to interfere with my body and my decisions between my doctor and me, but not okay to put regulations and restrictions on factories and business and that it’s even better to loosen restrictions on firearms than it is to loosen them on my body. Texas wants to control my abilities as an adult woman to make decisions about my own body, but not control the decisions of those people that can harm others. It seems unreal, at best.
This is important and necessary.
If you know anyone in Houston that needs a ride to Austin tomorrow, please have them contact me. If you’re in Texas and believe in reproductive freedoms, I urge you to get to Austin tomorrow, how ever way you have to:
