Congressional Republicans revealed their secret replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act: a threat to Medicaid, anyone with a pre-existing condition, and necessary access to health care for women and families.
The defeat of the Republicans’ plan was only made possible by activists who stood up in passionate resistance from the moment the bill was announced. NARAL members made thousands of phone calls and sent 50,000 messages to Congress opposing the repeal. Members of Congress reported that they received hundreds of phone calls and messages from constituents in opposition to the bill for every one in favor of it.
When Americans speak up, we force our leaders to listen. This is not the end of our struggle—it is a road map for the fights ahead.
Whether it was making phone calls, signing petitions, showing up at town halls or talking about the issue on social media, raising our voices made a difference and, for now, the healthcare of millions of Americans is safe once more.
We can’t stop now! We need to keep the pressure on so that Republicans know they can’t trample reproductive freedom. Learn about our other campaigns and take action.
