270: A Political Family

2 Jul

We are a political family. Always have been. It’s in our blood. Both Mr. Mack and I come from a long family history of political involvement. We are democrats. We believe in helping people, equality for all and human rights. I also believe in democracy. Everyone can feel differently. There is a process for making decisions and I know that this is what it means to be an American. We have freedoms and choices that people in other countries don’t have. I am also a moderate feminist. I don’t want to be treated differently because I have a vagina.

Therefore, I stand with Texas Women and I don’t want #sb5 to be a law. I want Texas women to have choice. I know this bill has issues that is far more complex than that. I just don’t want Texas legislators deciding for all women what should be a decision between the patient and the doctor. I also wish they would spend more time and energy toward providing a safe, educated Texas for our children.

Missy Mack and I went to the rally against this bill yesterday. This is the second rally we have attended as a family. I was proud to wear orange and cheer on Senator Davis.

There were 5,000 people at the Capitol for the protest.

We caught up with cousins and Missy Mack climbed trees with second cousins.
