Sen. Paxton Files SB 802 – The Every Mother Matters Act

Today, Sen. Paxton filed SB 802, the “Every Mother Matters Act” or EMMA, which would help women facing an unplanned pregnancy by matching them with local and state resources that can assist them based on their specific socioeconomic and family needs. EMMA will also help determine whether a woman has been a victim of a crime and which appropriate actions should be taken.

Every mother matters and EMMA will assist women during a critical juncture in their lives. By matching women based on their specific needs with specific resources, EMMA will provide women with compassionate, real help and the support they need.

Please read the below press release for more information on EMMA:
