Deputy Communication Director Lisa Paul released the following statement:
“Today’s decision is an important victory for women in Texas and across the country. This is a rejection of Mad Men era politics and policies that are designed to limit women’s choices and access.
“The Republicans who wrote and passed this law are wrong for Texas, and today’s decision reaffirms that it is time for a change in our state. Elections have consequences, and we can’t let the people who fought to restrict women’s rights in Texas with an unconstitutional law win in November.
“Texas deserves leaders who trust a woman to make her own decisions. Leaders who stand up against this kind of legislation and stand up for women. Leaders like Wendy Davis and Leticia Van de Putte.”
