TOMORROW, Wednesday May 5th, SB 8 and HB 1280 will be heard in the Texas House of Representatives. SB 8 is the Senate version of HB 1515, the 6-week abortion ban that would allow anyone to sue someone they suspect of helping someone get an abortion in Texas. HB 1280 is what is known as a “trigger ban” — it means that abortion will immediately become banned in Texas the moment Roe v. Wade is overturned at any point in the future.
Act now to stop SB 8 and HB 1280! Call your Texas state representative and tell them to fight against these two bills — and spread the word on social media!
Not sure what to say? Here’s a simple script!
Hi, my name is ________________________, and I live in Rep. _________________________’s district. I am calling to let the Rep know that I STRONGLY OPPOSE SB 8 and HB 1280, and to ask the Rep to vote NO on both of these bills. SB 8 would ban abortion before most people know they’re pregnant, and it would allow for anyone to sue someone they suspect has helped someone get an abortion — opening the door to all kinds of abuse and harassment through the court system. HB 1280 would ban abortion immediately if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Again, I STRONGLY OPPOSE SB 8 and HB 1280, and ask that the Rep vote NO on both of these bills.
Thank you so much for your time and for passing along this message to the Rep.
