Today’s Action: Pass federal abortion protections now!

As the US awaits the Roe v. Wade decision that could revoke our right to abortion, red states across the country are getting a head start by closing clinics and passing draconian abortion bans. Just this May, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed into law the strictest anti-abortion legislation in the country — effectively banning all abortions starting at fertilization. It’s one of the many laws across the nation that twist around the courts to prevent abortion, and soon Republican-led states won’t have any hoops to jump through at all to outlaw abortion.

It only took 48 hours after the infamous release of the draft opinion before Louisiana conservatives began discussing how to contort abortion into homicide. It’s clear that Republicans are more motivated than ever to rip away the right to choose from their constituents — willing and eager to force unwanted pregnancy onto everyone, including survivors of sexual abuse, under the threat of felony charges. It’s downright cruel. Regardless of what conservative-led states would like to be true, America is not a theocracy. Over 60% of Americans support legal abortion access. A legislator’s job is not to play God, it’s to serve their communities. Overturning Roe v. Wade sets an extremely dangerous precedent for the treatment of anyone who isn’t a straight, religious, white, cisgender male.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your members of Congress and demand they codify Roe v. Wade immediately!

It has never been more crucial to join the fight. Whether it’s donating to a local abortion fund, finding a rally, or writing your members of Congress, your voice is needed in the struggle for federally protected abortion rights. You can find a comprehensive list of abortion funds to donate to here; states with conservative legislatures — Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, Texas, and Louisiana, in particular — are in dire need of support in the face of unrelenting attacks on women’s healthcare.

No matter what the Supreme Court and Republican-dominated state legislatures are doing to restrict women’s access to reproductive care, you can still currently receive abortion aid via mail in all 50 states, and financial aid is available if you cannot afford your care. While acquiring and using abortion pills may come with legal risk, widespread access to such resources is crucial for women under attack from crusading conservatives. Until a final decision is handed down by the Supreme Court, abortion is still a legal right.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your members of Congress to tell them to codify Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court guts a woman’s right to choose!
