Lunchtime Briefing: Health Access for TX Moms

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023-12:00 pm - 12:45 pm


In this lunchtime briefing, The Center for Public Justice’s Families Valued team and partners discussed an urgent opportunity to support Health Care for Texas Moms. Topics covered: 

  • How health access improves maternal health, reduces maternal mortality, and helps address racial disparities for women in Texas.
  • Who is at risk under the current approach, which limits moms’ access to Medicaid 60 days after pregnancy. How the pending legislation improves maternal health in Texas.
  • Why comprehensive support for mothers and children is particularly important in this post-Dobbs environment.
  • How Christians can champion the progress of maternal health legislation in Texas.

Advocacy Objective

Hear about legislation being considered by the Texas legislature that would assure vulnerable moms access to Medicaid for the full first year after pregnancy. Pray for mothers, families, and Texas leaders whose decisions could affect the health and well-being of many.


The lunchtime briefing features Cessilye Smith, CEO of Abide Women’s Health Services, Emilie Cunningham, Ph.D., public health practitioner, member Dayspring Baptist Church, Waco, Kelly Rosati, Child advocacy, adoption, and foster care expert, and Art Hooker, Co-Chair at the Association for Public Justice.
