Take Action

It’s more important than ever to look to our state lawmakers and act on what we can do in our own backyard — across all 50 states — to fight for the right to access safe and legal abortion. This means putting new protections in place, repealing dangerous restrictions, holding the line against further attacks, and showing the country that every woman deserves access to safe and legal abortion. The only way we will do this is if we organize to show up, send letters, and speak up in statehouses around the country in 2019. Are you in?

What’s at stake?

There are at least 20 cases in the pipeline that could significantly gut or overturn the protections of Roe v. Wade  as soon as the Supreme Court takes them up. With two of Trump’s anti-choice appointees now on the Supreme Court, the threat of overturning Roe v. Wade, criminalizing abortion and punishing women, is real and immediate. 

In 1973, the landmark ruling Roe v. Wade affirmed what we all know to be true: Every American deserves to make decisions about her own life, body, and future. But in the years since that ruling, anti-choice organizations and politicians have continuously ramped up their extremist agenda, stacking the lower courts with anti-choice judges and attacking a woman’s right to privacy by advancing dangerous legislation to chip away at these rights.

As a result, there are at least 20 cases currently in the pipeline that could significantly gut or overturn the protections of Roe as soon as the Supreme Court takes them up. With two of Trump’s anti-choice appointees now on the Supreme Court, the threat of overturning Roe v. Wade, criminalizing abortion and punishing women, is real and immediate.

But we’re not powerless. It’s more important than ever that we look to our state lawmakers and act on what we can do in our states to fight for the ability to access safe and legal abortion. We have to put new protections in place, repeal dangerous restrictions, hold the line against further attacks, and show the country that every woman deserves access to safe and legal abortion. The only way we will do this is if we organize to show up, send letters, and speak up in statehouses around the country in 2019.

Before state legislators return to the statehouses in January, we have to send the message that their constituents are pro-choice and we’ll be expecting them to fight for our reproductive freedom in 2019. Are you in?
