Transcript TELL YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT CHOICE The most effective way of impacting legislation is a personal letter to your legislator. Letters should briefly state your position and the reasons for your views. Keep in mind that threats do not facilitate communication. Your personal experiences or the experiences of people you know is the most convincing. Letters should be addressed to: The Honorable (Rep's) P.O.Box 2910 Capitol Station Austin, Texas 78769 The Honorable (Sen's) P.O.Box 12068 Capitol Station Austin, Texas 78769 Sample letters stating opinion: - In countries where abortion has been legal for years, there is no evidence that respect for life has diminished or that legal abortion has lead to the killing of any persons. I feel the government has no right to interfere with a woman's right to control her life. - My rights under the Constitutional provisions of right to privacy are being threatened by the government! I definately support the right to choose to be a parent! Please vote against any bill limiting my rights. - To prevent the tragedies caused by the birth of unwanted children and the swell of welfare rolls, abortion is needed as a backup when contraception fails or is not used. I strongly urge you to support the right of women to have safe and legal abortions. - I am concerned about bills restricting funds for safe legal abortions. A woman unable to obtain a legal abortion faces the dangers of an illegal abortion. I urge your vote against any bills restricting funds for abortions. - The urgency of women's need to end unwanted pregnancy is measured by their willingness to risk death and mutilation, to spend huge sums of money and to endure the indignities of illegal abortion. A law to make abortion illegal is only going to increase the needless deaths an* mutilations. I want women to have the free choice without legal harassment. Sample letters refering to specific legislation: - 1 urge your no vote on HB125. This bill would only make abortions more complicated and dangerous. - Please vote no on SB117. This bill is meant only to make abortions more expensive and more complicated under the pretext of concern for the fetus. - Vote no on SB118. The state supports birth expenses for women who choose to have children and it should also support abortion expenses for women who are responsible enough to know they cannot care for a child - Do not support SB119. Taking away abortion benefits is equivalent to taking away abortion choice for many women. Women who are mothers by choice are better mothers than those who are forced to have children.

HUGE VOLUMES OF LETTERS ARE BEING GENERATED BY ANTI-CHOICE ORGANIZATIONS AND CATHOLIC CHURCHES. YOUR LEGISLATORS NEED TO KNOW YOUR POSITION. MWRITE NOW!!
