The following is a statement from Sen. Watson:
Today, the women of Texas won. The U.S. Supreme Court decision upheld the right to accessible and safe reproductive health care for women. And for that, we have a cavalry of strong Texas women to thank.
For too long, the women of this state have been collateral damage in a political battle. I’m hopeful we can now get to work on policies that truly do protect women’s health, such as improved access to birth control and breast and cervical cancer screenings as well as medically accurate sex education.
