The ACLU of Texas works to ensure that everyone in our great state can make the best decision for themselves and for their family about when and whether to have a child, without undue influence by politicians and special interest groups.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: Abortion in Texas

The decision to have an abortion is deeply personal, and is best left to the individual person, their family, and their doctor. But extremist politicians in Texas have rendered abortion services inaccessible and, soon, criminal.

Abortion is one of the most common medical procedures performed today, and it’s incredibly safe. We must fight back against laws that make it difficult if not impossible for Texans to get an abortion if they need one.
