What If We Had a 7 in 10 Pro-Choice Majority in Congress?

7 in 10 Americans believe in a woman’s right to choose, but right now, only 4 in 10 members of Congress share our pro-choice values!

There are so many things we could do to improve reproductive-health care if anti-choice politicians weren't running the show.

Here are 7 ways we could improve women’s lives if 7 out of 10 members of Congress were pro-choice:

  1. Stop extreme anti-choice measures. Anti-choice members of Congress could still introduce abortion bans and other anti-choice legislation, but we could stop them in their tracks.

  2. Get Supreme Court rulings that respect women. The Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case would have looked a lot different if the Senate confirmed more justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and blocked ones like Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito.

  3. Confirm more federal judges who would apply the rule of law, not their personal agendas. If 7 in 10 senators were pro-choice, more nominees like Pamela Harris and Ronnie White would be confirmed to the federal bench. And anti-choice nominees like Michael Boggs would be nonstarters.

  4. Put an end to Congressional hearings with anti-choice agendas. Members of Congress like Reps. Darrell Issa and Trent Franks have used their positions as committee chairs to hold circus-like hearings that don’t even include women’s voices or the facts.

  5. Roll back abortion coverage bans. Anti-choice members have made it a priority to block insurance coverage for abortion for women in the military, Peace Corps volunteers, civil servants, low-income women, women who live in D.C., and more. A pro-choice majority could get these women access to the care they need.

  6. Make the Women's Health Protection Act law. This legislation would block many state laws that make it nearly impossible for some women to access legal abortion.

  7. Teach students accurate, age-appropriate sex education. We could make sure funding for “abstinence-only” programs is never included in the federal budget, and pass proactive legislation like the REAL Act to create a nationwide sex education program.

 Sign up as one of the 7 in 10 today and help us elect a Congress that looks like the 7 in 10 pro-choice majority across America.
