On Wednesday, the Texas House State Affairs Committee is set to hear testimony on a proposed bill that would help lower the high number of unintended teen pregnancies in Texas.
Sign your name to send the following message to lawmakers on the House State Affairs Committee and voice your support for HB 468:
Please support House Bill 468 and Texans’ access to birth control.
We trust teen parents with making health care decisions for their own children, and we should respect them enough to make their own decisions about birth control.
Lowering the number of unintended teen pregnancies is important. House Bill 468 is a common sense step toward meeting that goal. HB 468 enables young parents to prevent unintended pregnancies, significantly reducing the rate of repeat teen pregnancy in Texas.
Texas has one of the nation’s highest rates of repeat teen births. I am asking you to allow teens who are already parents to get birth control when they need it.
