#RoeVWade changed lives for the better. It prevented so much harm & helped keep so many patients healthy. It opened doors for women to pursue their career and educational goals—& affirmed the right to control our own bodies and our own futures.
Since Roe, extreme Republicans have peddled blatant misinformation, filled our judicial system with anti-abortion judges, and passed state laws designed to make it harder to get abortions, birth control, or even take medication abortion pills in your own home.
But there's no one, easy fix. So I'm also fighting to make sure birth control is easy to get and affordable, that we make historic investments in Title X family planning centers, & more—& it's why I'm asking everyone to join me in the fight.
It’s going to take all of us working together to #ProtectReproRights . Share your story. Support a local organization helping to get patients the reproductive health care they need. Work to combat GOP misinformation. Fight to pass local and state laws protecting abortion rights.
The majority of Americans believe people should be trusted to make their own decisions about whether or not to get an abortion—& that it's not a decision that extreme politicians should make for you or can be taken away because of how much money they have or where they live.
The climate crisis is well underway in Washington state and across the country—you can see it, feel it, and we are all experiencing it. It's clear we can't delay taking action to protect our planet and I will keep fighting to make sure we do.
If we have to change the Senate rules to pass strong federal voting rights legislation, then let’s do it. Nothing is more important than protecting the right to have a voice in our democracy.
I want a country where everyone can choose if & when to start a family—free from political interference—& where everyone has full control of their bodies, lives, & futures. RT if you're with me in the fight to create that reality by protecting #RoeVWade & the right to abortion.
We can't let Republicans & their Supreme Court nominee end safe, legal abortion in the United States of America. RT if you're with me in this fight.
