On March 3, 2017, The Afiya Center joined the Texas Freedom Network and members of the Trust. Respect. Access. Coalition for a People’s Hearing at the Texas Capitol. For years, Texas politicians have based extreme anti-abortion laws on lies and misinformation, refusing even to hear from real experts about the serious consequences of those laws. On March 3rd we fought back during a “people’s hearing” to expose the lies behind Texas’ extreme anti-abortion laws – and demonstrate what an evidence-based hearing should look like.
