Tell Greg Abbott: Keep Clinics Open

Add your name to demand Gov. Abbott include abortion as essential healthcare and lift restrictions that endanger the lives of Texans.

Why is this important?

Governor Greg Abbott just ordered a stop to all "surgeries and procedures that are not immediately necessary" in Texas. Abortion is essential healthcare, but the Governor's office is trying to apply the order to abortion clinics.

Anti-abortion extremists are exploiting the coronavirus crisis to end abortion access as we know it.

We need to raise the alarm right now and flood Abbott's office with petitions demanding that he include abortion as essential healthcare and lift current restrictions that endanger the lives of Texans. Add your name to demand Texas keep abortion clinics open.


Reasons for signing

  • How convenient for the religious right to take this opportunity to restrict a woman from taking steps to do what is best for herself and her family. This is clearly a medically necessary procedure, one with time constraint, that disallowing would have a lifetime impact on the woman.
  • This is a time sensitive issue and not an elective procedure. Barely a “procedure” as medication abortion puts no staff at risk of infecting them.
  • This is a time-sensitive procedure. Greg Abbot and other disconnected hate mongers like him are using this (and Texans' freedoms) to incite the people who bankroll them. Now, more than ever, is the time to resist his self-motivated antics.
