Dear MoveOn member,
Access to safe and legal abortion is being threatened across the country.
The restrictive abortion bans in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and more and more states are specifically designed to gut the protections provided by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade and potentially overturn Roe entirely.
But a surge of outrage all across the country has met these attacks. Over the past few days, regular folks have joined together to organize hundreds of events this week to stop the bans and protect reproductive freedoms.
We need to be loud now—to demand the attention of lawmakers across the country, as well as local and national media, and to show that this movement to defend abortion rights is only going to keep growing. No one has the right to get between a patient and their doctor. Gutting Roe would send us back to a reality where abortion is illegal, and where more women, particularly lower income women and women of color, will die or be injured.
That's why MoveOn is joining with NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Women's March, Indivisible, and so many more to ensure everyone knows that the majority of Americans support everyone having access to a legal and safe abortion.Click here to find an action near you and RSVP now.
Over 300 actions will take place across the country this week, organized by local activists, like you, who want to protect reproductive freedom. We know MoveOn members are fired up and ready to take action. Already, MoveOn members have raised nearly $200,000 for the Yellowhammer Fund to ensure people in Alabama have the resources they need to access abortions while their rights are under attack. Now we're taking to the streets to ensure these attacks never become law and demand state governments protect our reproductive freedom.
Thanks for all you do.
