After access to abortion services were curtailed by Texas law, a photographer set out to document women on both sides of the debate.
Today, the fight over access in South Texas continues, with the effects of H.B. 2 not just visible in closed clinics. They are also seen in the lives of women fighting for what they feel is right. I photographed these women as part of a long-term project for the San Antonio Express-News. In early 2016, my editor, Luis Rios, and I began thinking about how we could cover abortion in South Texas in a deeper way. We knew that regardless of the outcome of the Supreme Court case, which was still pending at the time, the landscape of abortion access had changed dramatically.
