What Would Tami Taylor Do?

1 Jul

I quite often find myself asking “What Would Tami Taylor Do?” (see also Leslie Knope) and now there is a t-shirt emblazoned with this question. Connie Britton has teamed up with Planned Parenthood to support the pro-choice women of Texas. When casting the Lifetime movie of Senator Wendy Davis after last week’s monumental filibuster, Connie Britton was the first name on many lists and this felt like an appropriate time to use the Friday Night Light battle cry “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose.”

Connie BrittonOver at The Frisky they have Connie Britton’s statement from Planned Parenthood which says:

“The character Tami on Friday Night Lights is a Texas woman deeply committed to her community and to standing up for what is right for her neighbors and the people she loves. I have been inspired by how people around the country have united to stand with the women of Texas, and I can’t help but think that, in this moment, we all have the opportunity to join with and become strong, powerful Texas men and women.”

This reflects the letter that Britton wrote prior to the 2012 election after Mitt Romney started using “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” and Planned Parenthood is one of the factors that Britton mentions as this is where her character Tami Taylor got a pregnancy test in season 1 and Smash Williams’ mother worked as a nurse.


A limited edition t-shirt in orange or white will be available throughout July and as you can see below it simply says “What Would Tami Taylor Do?” For more information on this t-shirt from Connie Britton and Planned Parenthood Action Fund head here.

I’m not normally one for slogan tees but this one is special enough to break my own rules.
