Since the reversal of Roe v. Wade, the demand for pregnancy centers and adoption agencies has skyrocketed 43%!
But Texas lawmakers’ budget proposal reduces funding for Alternatives to Abortion from the House-approved draft in April.
Will you email your state officials right now to restore funding that helps women choose LIFE?
Copy and paste this message:
As your constituent and a Pro-Life Texan, I urgently ask that you restore the funding to the Alternatives to Abortion program at the $200 million level as passed by the House. The House Bill 1 Conference Committee Report shows this funding was walked back to $140 million. This is not sufficient funding to meet the needs of women and children over the next two years, and is unacceptable for a state like Texas that is not just anti-abortion but truly Pro-Life. The Texas Legislature must continue to protect and expand this life-saving program to meet Texans’ increased need after the reversal of Roe v. Wade. Since Roe was overturned, the program has seen a 43% increase in services provided to women. The resources this program provides are critical to ensuring Texas women are not pressured into seeking out-of-state or illegal abortions. Every single day, pregnancy resource centers, adoption agencies, and maternity homes provide tangible social services to assist women, children, and families. I urge you to work to restore full funding to the Alternatives to Abortion program at $200 million in House Bill 1 for the next two years. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Texas operates on a balanced budget. The state can only allocate money it has already brought in, and it can’t spend money out of thin air. This year, Texas has a $32.7 billion surplus. Lawmakers can and should fully fund Alternatives to Abortion.
Texas’ Alternatives to Abortion program is the LARGEST and MOST SUCCESSFUL state-funded resource in the country helping women choose Life! But without your voice right now, we may fall short of our goal.
Please send a message to your state lawmakers asking them to restore Alternatives to Abortion funding to $200 million.
In April, the Texas House granted initial approval for $200 million to this network of nonprofit adoption agencies, pregnancy centers, and maternity homes, but at the eleventh hour, a committee of representatives and senators slashed funding to $140 million. At this amount, countless pregnant women may not receive the life-saving help they need and could instead turn to illegal or out-of-state abortions.
Your voice has truly made a difference in the Legislature time and time again this year.
Send a message ASAP to your representative and senator asking them to restore the Alternatives to Abortion funding to $200 million.
