Tell Barack Obama & Texas' US Senators to Fill 5th Circuit Court of Appeals

There are two vacancies in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. These two positions represent Texas and they have been vacant since February 3 and August 1 of 2012.

With the recent decision by the Texas legislature to force through one of the most offensive and partisan abortion bills in the country, it is necessary for Texas to have fair, judges who will hear the case when it likely gets to the 5th Circuit.

It is time to fill these vacancies. We need all 3 branches of government fully functioning. If we are going to stand with Wendy and Texas women, we need our court to fill these two vacancies now.

We cann't have partisan judges appointed by Reagan, Bush, W. Bush, determine the fate of HB2 and women's health in Texas. 

Sign the petition and tell our President and Texas' U.S. Senators to fill these judicial positions now!

It is time to fill the judicial vacancies in Texas and especially in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. We need all 3 branches of government fully functioning.

There are two vacancies in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. These two positions represent Texas and they have been vacant since February 3 and August 1 of 2012.

With the recent decision by the Texas legislature to force through one of the most offensive and partisan abortion bills in the country, it is necessary for Texas to have fair, judges who will hear the case when it likely gets to the 5th Circuit.

The delays must end. Since our legislature ignored thousands of us, we demand Judges that represent Texas values ruling on Texas cases.

Fill these vacancies now!
