You may have heard about bills relating to women's health and abortion in the Texas Legislature over the past week or so. We are primarily concerned about SB5, HB60, and HB16. Jessica Luther has some GREAT info on why these bills are antiquated and disgusting, so go read this and this and then come back here.
Did you read it? Ok.
