AUSTIN, TX – Today the Supreme Court released their ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, limiting women’s access to birth control. Greg Abbott instantly celebrated the ruling.
Statement from Yvonne Gutierrez, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Texas Votes:
“Today Greg Abbott celebrates further limiting women’s access to birth control. It’s unbelievable that we are still fighting for access to birth control in 2014. And simply preposterous that Greg Abbott would state that limiting access to birth control is “protecting life.”
Texas women have already suffered numerous clinic closures and loss of access to basic care, including birth control. But Greg Abbott wants to see their access to health care limited even more.
Texans deserve a Governor who will fight for women, and to protect their access to birth control. That is why Texas women, and those who support us, will continue to fight and will work night and day until the election to stop Greg Abbott from becoming Governor.”
