I Pledge to Fight for Abortion Coverage in Texas!
Rosie’s Law would restore health insurance coverage of abortion for Texans. Take action to support Rosie’s Law!
Here’s what you need to know about Rosie’s Law and why it matters to YOU.
Texas abortion funds Texas Equal Access Fund, Frontera Fund, and Lilith Fund are once again partnering to champion Rosie’s Law this 2021 legislative session. Rosie’s Law is historic legislation that would protect the health of Texans by restoring health insurance coverage of abortion care.
Rosie’s Law honors the life of Rosie Jimenez, a 27-year-old Chicana mother from the Rio Grande Valley who died because Medicaid would not cover her abortion. The year before her death, politicians passed the Hyde Amendment, which denies insurance coverage of abortion for people enrolled in Medicaid. For people like Rosie who are working to make ends meet, insurance bans can make it impossible to access abortion care. We remember Rosie as we stay determined to continue fighting on behalf of Texans who need abortions.
The right to have an abortion is nothing more than symbolic if people can’t access the care they need. If passed, Rosie’s Law would make abortion more accessible for people across our state. Sign the pledge TODAY and commit to fighting for Rosie’s Law during the 2021 Texas legislative session! Joining today means you’ll get all of the news and updates about how we can fight for Rosie’s Law in the coming months.
