Happy International Women’s Day!

Spent today in Austin with fellow women’s health care supporters talking to representatives about funding needs.

I told Rep. Dan Flynn of Greenville about my need for Planned Parenthood’s cancer screenings and he basically told me to go to a crisis pregnancy center if I needed a pap smear. So. But we also met with Rep. Eric Johnson’s office (South Dallas!) and they were baller.

More later y’all.
