The objective of Republicans for Pro-Choice is to change the extremely restrictive abortion law in Texas which, in the aftermath of the repeal of Roe v. Wade, under penalty of incarceration outlaws all abortion, even in cases of rape or incest.

THE URGENT NEED FOR ACTION


The Republican Party alienates a significant percentage of a large segment of the American population: Women.  

The overturning of Roe v. Wade set back the women's movement over a half-century. Though our Constitution remains silent on abortion specifically, many scholars consider taking the right of women to control her body, the right to freedom over their person, unconstitutional.
For five years running women have outnumbered men matriculating to law schools. Female now consistently comprise a majority of medical school enrollment as well, up from 7 percent in 1960. With each election cycle, the number of Senators, Congresswomen, and other elected officials across the spectrum grows. In the recently seated 118th Congress, there are now 128 women (29% of the total) up from less than 20 throughout the 1970s. The power women exert only grows. While the Pro-Life proponents must be respected, all surveys confirm that significant majorities of voters desire some reasonable middle ground on this sensitive issue. 

REPUBLICANS FOR PRO CHOICE CALL FOR COMPROMISE
While abortion always should only be used as a last resort, times have changed, and the Republican Party must adapt.

You can be pro-life and still allow the compromise of first-trimester abortion. If the Republicans fail to make this compromise, they are going to be relegated to a permanent minority status.

THE NEED FOR ACTION IS NOW
America stands at an inflection point.

The repeal of Roe v. Wade and resulting draconian abortion suppression was the number one reason for the poor nationwide Republican midterm election results.

Through moderation in abortion statutes, Republicans for Pro-Choice aims to help women regain their right to choose and, in the process, demonstrate to Americans on both sides of the aisle that compromise unifies. It is our common culture that has made America the greatest country in the history of civilization.

WOMEN'S HEALTH


The Roe v. Wade repeal returned abortion as a state-level issue. It further limited abortion access in many states. Upon being overturned, thirteen states had preauthorized trigger clauses automatically in place, decreasing abortion availability. In some cases eliminating the right altogether, even in cases of rape, or incest. Texas is one of those states. Click here for the list of America’s most prohibitive abortion laws. 

Shuttering Planned Parenthood has much more far-reaching effects than simply restricting abortion. Health organizations, like these, provide health checkups, cancer screenings, and a plethora of other primary care services. As might be expected, it is those on the lower rungs of the economic ladder that suffer most from the radical Texas statute. All states with overly restrictive abortion laws face losing existing doctors.  New graduates are not choosing to practice in these states.

Won’t physicians think twice about treating miscarriages or problematic pregnancies with criminal penalties looming overhead? Doctors face enough liability under normal circumstances. These extreme laws decrease the quality of care that physicians can provide.

Straight From The Source: Texas OB/GYNs 

“I have been a practicing Ob-gyn for 25 yrs. Texas abortion statutes changed the entire tone of our office visits. Fun, exciting discussions about family planning and pregnancy have become negative, anxiety-filled consultations. Couples fear the consequences of any complication, be it maternal or fetal. One patient, who is herself an MD, had an extremely rare chromosomal abnormality incompatible with life. Luckily, she had the resources to go out of state for a medical termination. Lower-income women would not have this option.” 
 
“These inhumane laws place doctors in a constant struggle between doing what is best for our patients and keeping our jobs and/or facing criminal legal consequences. We are unable to honor our Hippocratic oath. None of the ob-gyn residents now plan to stay in Texas to practice. Not only that, they are not being trained properly on potentially life-saving procedures for pregnant women.”
 
“The Texas law refers to 'reasonable medical judgment' for a doctor to determine if the mother’s life is in danger. That onus is on me, and what’s reasonable to me may not be reasonable to a judge.”
 
“Possibly doing time for doing my job places undue burden. The doctor-patient covenant gets polluted, so overall treatment is compromised.”
 
“Criminal responsibility hangs daily over my practice.”
 
“Planned Parenthood has been a mainstay of preventative health care for many years. They provide primary care, cancer screening, contraception, STI screening and treatment, and more. Abortion is a small part of their practice. Continued funding and support is imperative.”

Five women sue the state of Texas for denying them an abortion. They claim prohibitng abortion endangers their lives. Sounds like a correct assumption.
