Allred Releases Statement on Texas Municipalities Rejecting Extremist Anti-Abortion Measures

Dallas, TX — Today, Congressman Colin Allred released the following statement on two Texas municipalities – Mason County on Monday and Chandler yesterday – voting against instating ordinances that would make it illegal to drive through the jurisdiction for the purpose of traveling out of state for abortion care:

“Women should have the freedom to make their own decisions about their bodies and their health. Prohibiting a woman from fleeing the state in order to receive the health care she needs would be unconscionable. It’s not surprising to see Texans across the state reject these extremist anti-abortion measures that would criminalize women just for trying to leave Texas to receive necessary abortion care.

“Ted Cruz wants to ban abortion nationwide – an extremist position that’s against the beliefs of the vast majority of Texans. When I’m in the Senate, I will continue to fight to codify Roe v. Wade and ensure that all Texas women can get the health care they need – not in New Mexico or Colorado, but here at home.”
