Today’s Action: Pass federal abortion protections now!

With more and more state legislatures passing draconian abortion bans that force healthcare providers to stop performing the procedures all together, federal abortion protections are needed now more than ever.

Since the conservative-stacked US Supreme Court signaled that they’ll potentially overturn the 1973 decision of Roe v. Wade, several GOP-controlled states have put in motion 15-week abortion bans, including Arizona and Mississippi. In all, 20 states have laws at the ready that will ban or thoroughly restrict abortion should Roe v. Wade be overturned. Many states have already passed laws that stall abortion access and close clinics. With a six-justice conservative majority, including three partisan operatives appointed by Donald Trump, saving the future of reproductive freedom likely falls to the United States Congress.

Whether it’s through the Women’s Health Protection Act or new legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade, we need our elected officials to take action as quickly as possible.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your members of Congress and demand the passage of federal abortion protections immediately!

No matter what Republican-dominated state legislatures are doing, you can still receive abortion aid via mail in all 50 states, and financial aid is available if you cannot afford your care. While acquiring and using so-called abortion pills may come with legal risk, widespread access to such resources is crucial for women under attack from crusading conservatives.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your members of Congress to tell them to codify Roe v. Wade before conservative state governments further gut a woman’s right to choose!
