Ellis Reacts to HB 2 Ruling

(Austin, Texas) — Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. District Court's ruling that portions of House Bill 2 are unconstitutional and will not go into effect:

"HB 2 was an unprecedented, unreasonable, and unconscionable attack on women's health. Texas women deserve better. I'm glad that parts of the bill that would have made constitutionally-protected health care services less safe and less available won't be going into effect tomorrow."
