Statement by Madi Eden, District 17 candidate after the Roe v Wade decision.

Date
I am outraged. I am speechless. I am broken hearted. Last Friday the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, abandoning the rights that we have held closely for almost 50 years. Unfortunately, the reality for Texans is that we are one of many states whose legislature has been gearing up for this decision. This ruling triggers HB1280, which repeals and criminalizes a woman's bodily autonomy. We must fight to stop this decision now and throw it out in November. I’m running to ensure more of our representatives are fighting for our rights, not against them. I’m running because I’m angry and ready to fight for change. Today women across the country are feeling hopeless and defeated. But that's what they want. So we have to keep fighting, we have to keep showing up, we have to keep pushing back. If we don't, then what's the point? We can come together and fight. We can show that no longer will we stand with a party that strips our freedoms. History can be rewritten. All of the rights we have today were thanks to millions of people who would no longer stand for inequality and injustice. This is our moment. We can't give up. It will get better.
