Today the Women’s Health Protection Act once again failed the Senate. Like many of you, I’m infuriated; as the Supreme Court sits on the verge of striking down Roe, the anti-choice Republican minority has once again used the filibuster — a tool of segregation — to deny essential healthcare to millions of Americans.
But we can’t afford to give up now.
I know that abortion bans disproportionately impact communities who already face barriers to receiving health care and are a tool to maintain systemic inequities. That’s why I introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act to guarantee the right to abortion care in all 50 states — and now, that work is more important than ever. And I will continue to fight until it’s achieved.
But I can’t do it alone. I’m running for re-election to ensure I can continue this fight in Congress, and I’m proud to champion pro-choice candidates who are ready to do the same. If you’re with me, will you chip in now?
