Despite Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis’ filibuster, the Texas legislature this year passed Kermit Gosnell-inspired laws that hold Texas abortion clinics to higher safety standards and prohibit most abortions five months after conception. That bothers pro-abort liberals in New York City, so they organized a fundraiser called Texas Women Forever.
At Feministing, Alison Turkos, co-chair of the board of the New York Abortion Access Fund, explained the purpose of #txwomenforever:
We in New York wanted to show our support the best way we knew how – by raising funds to send to the people on the ground who work day in and day out to help people navigate the changing landscape of abortion access.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with an incredible group of comedians, actors, poets, writers, musicians, activists and more for “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can Choose,” an online telethon on Monday, November 18th. Lizz Winstead and Sarah Silverman will host this 3-hour online event raising funds for the Lilith Fund, TEA Fund, Whole Women’s Action Fund, and Fund Texas Women.
Well, do you?
