disproportionate harm

The Supreme Court just announced it will take up a case on reproductive freedom – the first one since the confirmation of Donald Trump's far-right appointees, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

We know that banning or limiting abortion and disseminating false or misleading information about abortion will not stop abortions – it will create a public health crisis with low-income women and women of color suffering a disproportionate amount of the harm.

We will not sit idly by and allow anyone to undermineRoe v. Wade. With the future of Roe in danger, it's important for Congress to act to protect reproductive rights – I am counting on you to speak out right now. Add your name, and tell my colleagues in Congress to protect reproductive rights!

I believe that Congress must:

  • pass legislation to protect the right of women to decide whether to terminate a pregnancy; and
  • prohibit any government entity from denying, interfering with, or discriminating against that choice.

We're talking basic human rights.
