RAICES Applauds Justice Department Lawsuit and Clarifies Position on SB 8 Abortion Ban

San Antonio, Texas, September 11, 2021 – RAICES applauds the filing of a lawsuit by the U.S. Department of Justice yesterday as sending a strong message to Texas and the nation that abortions are Constitutionally-guaranteed in every state of this union.

To amend and clarify the statement made last week in response to SB 8, RAICES will work within the laws of the state of Texas to support others in solidarity with the organizations leading the reproductive rights movement here in Texas and to support the reproductive rights of our clients and their access to safe and legal abortion services outside of the state of Texas.

We reaffirm our unwavering support for the rights of all immigrants and refugees, including those who are pregnant and seeking abortion services in a state that seeks to deny their freedom to choose pursuant the settled legal precedent of Roe v. Wade.
