Fight Back Against 3 Anti-Abortion Bills

July 21, 2017 @ 8:00 am - July 22, 2017 @ 12:00 pm

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick announced the Texas Senate will take up the 3 anti-abortion bills on Gov. Greg Abbott’s special session agenda this Friday at 8 AM and Saturday at 9 AM.

We will continue to update this page as more details on the hearings are available. Plan to arrive early to testify and/or register against these bills:

Friday 8 AM: Senate Health and Human Services Committee
E1.016 (Hearing Room)
SB 4: This bill would ban local government entities from partnering with health care providers like Planned Parenthood that are affiliated with an abortion provider and would limit health care access for communities that rely on Planned Parenthood.

SB 10: This bill would increase the complication reporting requirements imposed on abortion providers. This bill unnecessarily targets abortion providers, even though hospitals are already required to report complications, and abortion is among the safest medical procedures.

Saturday 9 AM: Senate Business & Commerce Committee
E1.016 (Hearing Room)
SB 8: This bill would prohibit all health insurance plans from offering coverage for abortion and makes it so Texans enrolled in any insurance must purchase supplemental coverage outside of their plan or pay out of pocket.
