There was a boisterous scene at the corner of Guadalupe and 22nd streets this afternoon, as Planned Parenthood’s Women’s Health Express Bus Tour stopped in central Austin.
Activists from Texas Voices For Reproductive Justice and Texas Freedom Network collected signatures urging Governor Perry to reconsider his decision to cut all state funding for the Medicare Women’s Health Program which provides basic health care services to over 130,000 Texas women. About a dozen anti-choice activists were also in attendance.
Sign on to the petition here and tell Rick Perry:
Shame on you for telling women who need access to affordable birth control that your narrow ideology matters more than their futures.
