    I’m available to testify in person at the public hearing on Wednesday, March 18, at 10:30 a.m. in Room JHR 140 of the John H. Reagan Building at 105 West 15th Street in Austin.

    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.


    Last legislative session, radical Texas lawmakers passed extreme legislation limiting access to abortion care in our state under the guise of protecting women's health and safety. These lawmakers promised to come back this legislative session to address the issue of unintended pregnancy.

    House Bill 468 by state Rep. Mary González, D-Clint, would allow teen parents over the age of 15 to obtain birth control without having to get the consent of their parents or guardians. Lawmakers should trust teen parents and other Texans to make their own reproductive health care decisions, including the timing and spacing of their children.

    If you’re available to testify in person, the public hearing will be held on Wednesday, March 18, at 10:30 a.m. or after the House has adjourned for the day. The hearing will be in Room JHR 140 of the John H. Reagan Building at 105 West 15th Street in Austin.
