A woman has the right to make decisions about her body — it is that simple.
Any issue involving a woman’s healthcare is between her and her doctor, and that’s where we need to leave it.
In 2013, State Senator Wendy Davis gave an iconic 10-hour filibuster in pink sneakers to fight for women’s reproductive freedom in Texas. I was honored to be standing beside her that day on the Senate floor in support of her filibuster.
That day, we won the battle, and I am dedicated to continuing this fight in Washington, where Roe vs. Wade is under attack, and the continued appointment of anti-choice Supreme Court Justices could result in a catastrophic blow to women’s reproductive freedom.
I will take this fight from the Texas State Senate floor to the United States Senate floor.
