Stop the War on Women

Take action for women's right this weekend

Rally. This weekend. Texas Capitol. Be there.
Rally. This weekend. Texas Capitol. Be there.

Texas' family planning budget has been gutted. Lawmakers have mandated invasive ultrasound for all women seeking abortion. In an effort to squeeze Planned Parenthood out of Texas, the state is willing to demolish the successful Women's Health Program.

And that's just the recent news. Enough to make you crazy or depressed – or both.

But now is not the time to lie down and hide your head. It's time for action. Join with an expected crowd of thousands on Saturday, April 28, at 4p at the Texas Capitol for the nationwide Unite Against the War on Women's Rights rally.

The Texas chapter of Unite Women has quite a rally planned, with a host of passionate speakers to get your blood pumping – including Austin state Rep. Dawnna Dukes (in case you missed her last sizzling speech, you can find it here), and Texas Freedom Network's Kathy Miller, among others.

Find details on the event here and here.
