All Texans deserve the freedom to make their own decisions about their own body, their own health care, and their own future. We deserve the freedom to decide if, when, and with whom to start a family.
But Greg Abbott believes the government has the right to upend these freedoms. He signed the most extreme abortion ban in the entire nation, with no exception for rape or incest—and on his watch, Texas is now leading the effort to ban abortion even in cases where women will die without one.
I will trust Texas women to make their own health care decisions.
Abbott’s eight years of attacks on reproductive freedom have shuttered women’s health clinics across the state, making it harder and harder for women to receive a cervical cancer screening, maternal health checkup, or family planning help of any kind. On his watch, Texas ranks dead last in the nation for access to prenatal and maternal health care, which helps to explain how our state—the ninth largest economy on planet earth—has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the developed world.
This ends when I’m governor. I will trust Texas women to make their own health care decisions.
In addition to using every tool available to repeal Abbott’s dangerous abortion ban, I will veto any future legislation that seeks to further control women, including Republican proposals to limit access to contraception, prevent Texans from crossing state lines to seek reproductive care, and prosecute businesses that pay for employees to seek care in other states.
While strengthening investments in affordable contraception, cancer screenings, and other crucial family planning services, I will also support healthy babies and combat Texas’ maternal mortality crisis by expanding Medicaid and increasing pregnancy Medicaid eligibility to one-year-postpartum.
