Statement by HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra on Texas Law SB8

“Every American, no matter who they are or where they live, deserves access to quality, affordable health care — including safe and legal abortion. Texas law SB8 is dangerous and dubious. The burdens of this law descend disproportionately upon low-income families and communities of color. The 21st century must be about protecting and expanding Americans’ health care, not illegally and discriminatorily denying it.”
