My e-mail to Senator Glenn Hegar (author of Senate Bill 5)

I am glad that Senate Bill 5 failed to be adopted in the special session that recently concluded. While the proponents of this bill, and you as the author, may argue that it was about ensuring the safety of women; it was very apparent that this was a political stunt that was done to appease the Tea Party voters in your district.

I am a middle-aged, white male and I do vote. I strongly encourage you not to reintroduce this bill or any other bills that would curtail the rights of women to obtain abortions in Texas.

Please remember this letter if another special session is called. I will remember who you are and I will inform other voters if you continue to introduce legislation that infringes on the rights provided by Roe v. Wade.

2. I live in Hegar's district also

I agree with your e-mail but I doubt that Hegar will pay attention

3. I doubt that he will either,

but he at least needs to know that 100% of the people don't agree with him. I already started to inform some people about him when I heard the issue being discussed at the local coffee shop and they weren't aware of his role authoring the bill.

7. I don't think they care what we say.

They are so dug in to their dogma that they think they are right, no matter if 99% of their constituents were to disagree with them.

But it was a good letter, nonetheless, and I think it's important that we share our frustration with our elected officials.

4. I do think some of these Republican patriarchs are going to be surprised at the number

of white male voters who oppose them on this. They will be shocked, because they figure they have a lock on this demographic.


Oops.

6. Sorry

I was in law school with Senator Kirk Watson. We were also on the college debate squad a long time ago. Kirk has also not changed but that is why he is so effective
