Austin, TX -  Today would have been the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The abortion rights established by Roe ended last June - even though most Texans have lived without abortion access since the passage of SB8 almost two years ago. 

Following statement can be attributed to Nisha Randle, Public Affairs Director Planned Parenthood Texas Votes

“For years, Texas politicians with extreme anti-abortion views chipped away at access to reproductive health care resulting in our current health care crisis - with the consequences of their cruelty largely falling on people who already face the most significant barriers to health care. 

And while today’s anniversary marks a reminder of what we’ve lost here in Texas and nationwide, it’s also a reminder that Roe was always the floor and never meant to be an endpoint. The legacy of Roe is imperfect, but the decades of work it took to get there was a gift from those who came before us and whose shoulders we stand on today - committed to creating a new vision for the future of sexual and reproductive health. A future centered on abundance and inclusion. 

The right to control our bodies is non-negotiable. Abortion is essential health care, period. Planned Parenthood Texas Votes will keep fighting until we realize a world where everyone is in control of their reproductive health, lives, and futures.”


Planned Parenthood Texas Votes (PPTV) is the nonpartisan policy, advocacy and political arm for the Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas.
