|San Antonio organizers stand their ground against six-week abortion ban
On May 5, Senate Bill 8 passed in the House, priming Texas to implement rigid restrictions on abortion access, barring those needing to terminate their pregnancy from receiving care after six weeks — a window where most women wouldn’t yet know if they’re pregnant. This afternoon, with upper chamber approval, the legislation has been approved to land on Governor Abbot’s desk to be signed into law.
Despite the fearsome proposal and the threat of lawsuits toward associated parties the legislation could produce, Katernina Tsvetkova — a San Antonio-born abortion advocate and organizing member of local abortion fund, Buckle Bunnies — is not backing down.
“I'm concerned, but not to the point that I don't know what I'm gonna do if it happens, I know exactly what I'm gonna do when it happens,” said Tsvetkova.
“If anything we’re just gonna fundraise more to get people more direct resources and supplies that they need, like I said, we'll do everything in our power. It's scary but I wouldn't be 100 percent worried, help is going to be there no matter what.”
Tsvetkova, a 23 year old, first generation Russian-American and UTSA alumnae, has been doing on-the-ground work with reproductive justice for five years, since joining a student Planned Parenthood chapter at the beginning of her undergraduate career.
