Texas Exploits Pandemic to Restrict Access

A recent New York Times piece highlighted the difficulties Texas women are experiencing attempting to access reproductive healthcare as a result of the governor and attorney general exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic to restrict access to abortion services.
Our Catholic faith’s teachings demand that we respect the conscience-based decisions people make, including the right to continue or end a pregnancy. Texas ideologues and ultraconservatives on the federal bench are violating freedom of conscience and preying on many of the state’s most vulnerable citizens.
Catholics for Choice will continue to fight for access to abortion services in Texas, and across the United States. We, the majority of Catholics in the US, stand with those in Texas who need access to care and those providing it, because our faith calls us to ensure respect for conscience and social justice is true for all, no matter their zip code or station. The majority of Texans and the majority of Catholics in Texas think abortion access is important.
