Legislation that would shut down 36 of the state’s 42 women’s health centers that provide access to abortions could still be passed in the state, so to keep the pro-choice fight alive, actress Connie Britton–well known for her role on Friday Night Lights as the level-headed, independent Tami Tayor, or “Mrs. Coach”–has lent her voice to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and StandWithTexasWomen.org.

She would stand up for the rights of women in Texas.
