Two years ago I first heard a friend’s abortion story, in May I sat on a couch with my then-boyfriend to talk about our options if the test came back positive, last month I held a friend’s hand while she cried about the stigma she worried she’d face, and yesterday a stranger gifted me a zine detailing her decision to get an abortion. It’s happening all around us, to our friends and our families and our co-workers and our neighbors.
That’s why I fight for Texans, that’s why I fight for Leticia and Wendy, that’s why I fight for providers and funds, that’s why I fight for access, and that’s why I’ll keep fighting tooth and nail for as long as it takes.
Election Day is less than a month away and the fight won’t end there just like the fight didn’t start with HB2, but I hope that you’ll make sure you’re registered to vote by tomorrow and I hope that you’ll get to the polls next month.
