Rick Larsen for Congress

 

They're preparing for battle

I have to admit, I am concerned. The Supreme Court is going to hear its first case on reproductive freedom since President Trump appointed Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

This case is the frontlines for the anti-choice extremists' war on public health, human rights, and personal autonomy. What else can you call attempt after vile attempt to restrict rights to safe and legal reproductive health care?

Week after week, there's a new outrageous, draconian law passed: Alabama. Missouri. Iowa. Mississippi. Now, the Supreme Court will hear a case that could leave all but ONE clinic in Louisiana shut down. If they're successful, other states will follow suit.

Republicans are pushing all-out because, thanks to Donald Trump's activist and extreme Supreme Court appointments, they believe they can overturn Roe v. Wade.

We can't let them. We must pass legislation to further 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.

Sign my petition urging my colleagues in Congress to further protect reproductive freedom.

What happens next matters for all of us, none of us can afford to sit this one out.
