Nowhere to be found

I'm going to take 60 seconds to share in our outrage. Then, I'm going to tell you how we can take action to fight the Republican war on reproductive choice.

Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration call themselves pro-life. It's a sham.

Where is their compassion for life when children and families are being separated on our southern border?
Where is it when they want to deny the sick and vulnerable health care?
Where is it when LGBTQ Americans face daily discrimination because of who they love?
Where is it when victims of rape are looking for safe and legal options for an abortion in their darkest hours?

Answer: their compassion is nowhere to be found.

The anti-abortion laws recently passed in Alabama, Missouri, Iowa, and elsewhere across America have exactly two jobs: advance the war on women, and enable an activist, arch-conservative majority on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

This isn't about anything else. So, what can we do about it?

Today, we're fundraising alongside Planned Parenthood. They need our support now more than ever before.

As for tomorrow, get ready. We're organizing a massive resistance. And each of us will need to play a part.

More soon,
Jim
