Today’s Action: Demand Congress pass legislation protecting abortions in all 50 states!

The Department of Justice has called on Congress to pass federal abortion protections to combat anti-abortion laws taking place, such as Greg Abbott’s heinous “heartbeat ban” which blocks the majority of abortions — at six weeks — before most women even know they’re pregnant.

Support for Roe v. Wade is both strong and bipartisan, with 60-70% of Americans in favor. And more importantly, regardless of polling, no similar issue regarding men’s health is subject to the whims of popular vote. But with a 6-3 right-wing supermajority in the Supreme Court, a woman’s right to choose is in serious jeopardy.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representatives and demand they pass federal abortion protection laws that enshrine Roe v. Wade into law!

The wave of proposed anti-abortion laws at the state level and recent Supreme Court decisions set a perilous stage for the fight for abortion rights America, and they only embolden anti-abortion groups. It also puts abortion seekers at risk of physical or professional retaliation — while abortion is still ostensibly legal in all 50 states. We need our leaders to move quickly to ensure that the right to choose is protected at the federal level, before we lose decades of progress.

For any person, having a child is a monumental event. Our leaders have a duty to protect the choice to do so.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representatives and tell them to pass federal protections for abortion access before the Supreme Court further guts Roe v. Wade!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling the media not to give oxygen to Larry Elders’ election fraud lies, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
