Raquel Was Terrified to Report Her Abusive Boyfriend. Texas' SB4 Could Make Things Worse. | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it
Yvonne’s problems began several months ago when she started noticing bruises and swellings on the arms, face, and lips of her 16-year-old daughter.

When Yvonne finally figured out what was going on, she was horrified, and she contacted the local police in El Paso. In turn, they notified the County Attorney’s Office, which is responsible for obtaining legal protection for victims of family violence. From there, mention of Raquel’s injuries ended up in a federal court in San Antonio, hundreds of miles away.
