195 voted no

Justice Clarence Thomas's concurring opinion questioned Americans' right to contraception. And MAGA Republicans have made it clear that this is not one man's opinion.

I was proud to vote YES on the Right to Contraception Act. But 195 Republicans voted NO. 195!

The vote was 228-195, with eight Republicans joining every Democrat in voting in favor. All 195

Republicans are showing us every day that if they take control of Congress, they'll vote against women every single time.

We're building a historic movement to elect a progressive majority in Congress – one that respects women's rights. Chip in now to join in before the end of the month!

This is a simple issue of freedom: how (or when or if) women choose to access birth control is none of the government's business.

This essential health care is used for much more than preventing pregnancy. Many women need it to live pain-free lives.

I'm utterly disgusted by the blatant misogyny of many of my Republican colleagues.

They've made it clear that they don't give a damn about the American people – just the narrow group of MAGA extremists – and I am done. We can't force them to have empathy, but we can vote them out.

We need to elect an overwhelmingly progressive majority to Congress. Can you chip in $3 before the end of the month to help ensure a progressive victory?
