Urgent: Kennedy Retires & Roe v. Wade On the Line
This is the fight of our lives. Trump has vowed to overturn Roe v. Wade. With the resignation of Justice Anthony Kennedy, he now has a clear shot to do just that. Justice Kennedy was the swing vote upholding the right to reproductive freedom and privacy. We have finally reached the moment we’ve all feared: losing our rights and access to abortion is virtually certain unless we are able to stop the appointment of an anti-choice nominee to the Supreme Court.
Even before Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, we witnessed decisions that have restricted abortion, gun control, immigration, and voter rights, and that have given more freedom to corporations at the expense of individuals. We can’t let this go one step further.
Take Action NOW by calling your Senators to stop this attack on reproductive rights.
If Trump gets to appoint a stalwart conservative and anti-abortion justice to the court, not only will Roe be endangered–but we face devastating rollbacks on anti-discrimination protections that have been established for LGBTQ individuals, people of color, and other marginalized groups.
We know Trump’s agenda. He has reinstated and expanded the Global Gag Rule, appointed anti-birth control science deniers to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, attempted to stop funding teen pregnancy prevention programs, aimed to defund Planned Parenthood, and is pushing ahead with a domestic gag rule that will undoubtedly result in clinics closing nationwide. With Trump set to appoint a conservative justice, our country will be set in a new direction that will restrict our rights for generations to come.
Roe is Trump’s next target, and we must act NOW to stop it.
We have too much on the line. Please consider a donation to help us fight back NOW, and join us by taking action and calling your Senators TODAY. Tell them they must support a nominee who will uphold Roe and the rights of women and girls. Our lives depend on it.
Here’s How YOU Can Take Action NOW:
Contact your Senators and urge them to stand up for women’s reproductive health by only supporting a nominee that will uphold Roe.
If you live in New York:
Senator Chuck Schumer (202) 224-6542
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (202) 224-4451
Here is a script you can use:
“Hi, my name is _____ and I reside in ______. I’m urging Senator ______ to only support a Supreme Court Justice nominee that will uphold Roe v. Wade. I’m also urging you to demand that Senator Mitch McConnell hold off the vote to replace Justice Kennedy – at least until after the midterm elections. Senator McConnell set the mark by withholding the vote on President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, before the election of 2016, and he must do the same in 2018. We will NOT accept another vote on a Supreme Court Justice before the midterms. “
