Julie – your name is not on our list and we do not hand out the list we have so probably people are calling off an old list. Hope you are well. Houston misses ya!

Still Standing with Texas Women

HB2-stillstanding.jpg

Today the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals will be considering HB2, the anti-abortion omnibus bill that was forced through the Texas legislature in special sessions in 2013.

 

HB2 left chaos in its wake with the closure of health centers throughout Texas, but the Supreme Court intervened and those vital centers were allowed to remain open. Now the 5th Circuit will be making the decision on whether or not HB2 will go into effect. 

 

This fight is not only about the fight for access to reproductive health care, but it is also about keeping health centers which provide other vital services like cancer screenings and immunizations open for business in parts of the state that are desperate for access to healthcare. 

 

We are asking you to recommit to standing with Texas women and Texas families by signing the petition. We will keep you informed about what is happening in the fight for access to healthcare in Texas.

The agreement is 2 days a week for 3 months. They understand if you cannot make all the meetings but it is, of course, encouraged.

WENDY DAVIS TO GREG ABBOTT: STOP DODGING ON LILLY LEDBETTER ACT

BREAKING NEW VIDEO FROM WFAA: Abbott Refuses To Give Straight Answer About His Opposition To Texas Equal Pay Bill

Click here to watch the new video. 

Fort Worth, TX — Today, Wendy Davis released the following statement after Attorney General Greg Abbott dodged and weaved instead of giving a straight answer that he would veto the Texas Equal Pay Act as governor in a Sunday interview with WFAA.  The Texas Equal Pay Act, also known as the Texas Lilly Ledbetter Act, is a common sense equal pay law that would ensure women are paid the same as men when they do equal work.

“Greg Abbott needs to stop dodging and give a straight answer about his opposition to the Texas Equal Pay Act.  Hardworking Texans deserve to know if he believes in this simple principle: a full days work is worth a full days pay no matter what your gender.  With more families than ever before relying on two incomes, they cant afford to have one of their paychecks unfairly reduced just because one of them is a woman,” said Senator Wendy Davis.

During the last legislative session, Senator Davis led the fight in the Texas Senate for Representative Senfronia Thompson’s Equal Pay Act - (HB 950).   After passing through the Republican controlled legislature in 2013, the bill was vetoed by Governor Rick Perry.

According to 2012 census data, Texas women are paid roughly 82 cents on the dollar on average for comparable work compared to men.

African-Americans are paid about 59 cents on the dollar and Hispanic women are paid about 45 cents on the dollar for the same work compared to their male counterparts.
