Texas: Turning Lies into Bad Medicine Laws

Texas is one of the worst states in the country when it comes to enacting abortion restrictions that flout the facts and conflict with scientific evidence. In fact, a recent analysis by the National Partnership for Women & Families and the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund found that at least 70 percent of the abortion restrictions pending in the Texas legislature in 2017 are based on lies about abortion, the trusted health care professionals who provide abortion care, and the women who seek it.

Texas Awareness Campaign

The Texas Freedom Network Education Fund joined with the National Partnership to launch a new campaign to show Texas politicians that when they lie, we’re going to call them out. The campaign includes a series of digital ads on major media outlets as well as on social media platforms, and will extend beyond the current legislative session.
