… the battle cry of a new Texas Revolution!
Remember Gonzales…
Remember Goliad…
Remember the Alamo…
Remember the Texas State Senate …June 25, 2013… Senator Wendy Davis and the fight for women’s productive rights!!

Or as one friend put it … ‘Remember Gonzales, Remember Goliad, Remember Gonads…’

For those of you living outside the GSOT, or perhaps in a cave … there is a battle raging in the Texas Senate over a bill that could potentially threaten women’s health in matters that far exceed the banning of abortions at 20 weeks.

The proposed legislation, which, on its face, targets abortion clinics, represents a serious threat to women’s reproductive health – it is not just about abortion. Take a few minutes to read this article by Tara Culp-Ressler at ThinkProgress.com:  What The Mainstream Media Misses About Texas’ Ongoing Abortion Battle.

Per Culp-Ressler: “…the real catch? Outside of the debate about abortion access after 20 weeks — even outside of the fight for abortion rights altogether — the “abortion clinics” in question are often providing health services that encompass much more than helping women terminate a pregnancy. Many of them also provide preventative care, family planning counseling, STD testing, and cancer screenings. And they offer those health services to Texans of both genders who are typically uninsured.”

Legislation is NEVER about just one issue – it is laden with multiple agendas. Educate yourselves! Look at ALL the issues. Read BETWEEN the lines!
