Roe Isn’t the First.
And It Won’t Be the Last.

On September 1st, five extreme justices on the Supreme Court dealt a critical blow to the constitutional right to abortion and reproductive health care, refusing to block a Texas law that effectively bans abortion after six weeks, which providers estimate to be 85-90% of abortions. The law also deputizes private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone trying to help someone seeking an abortion, essentially putting a bounty on everyone from providers to Uber drivers.

This is the culmination of a forty-year campaign by the Republican Party, Federalist Society, and the ultraconservative members of the Court to dismantle Roe. And we know more unconstitutional decisions are on the horizon.

But we are ready to fight, and we need you to fight with us.

Immediately, we are calling on Congress to abolish the filibuster, pass federal legislation like the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect access to abortion, and expand the Court. We promise to hold those who block progress accountable at the ballot box in 2022.

Ready to do more?
    • Call your Representative at 202-225-3121, using the call script on our resource tab, and demand they:
        • Sign onto the Judiciary Act of 2021, which would add four seats to the Supreme Court;
        • Sign onto the Women’s Health Protection Act, which protects the right to access abortion free from medically unnecessary restrictions and bans.
    • Tweet at your Representative and President Biden that Roe isn’t the first and it won’t be the last and we cannot allow a lawless SCOTUS to take away our rights. Congress must step in.
    • Share our campaign with your friends and family.
    • Spread the word on social media using the hashtags #BansOffOurBodies and #CourtsMatter.
    • As the federal judiciary retreats from the Constitution’s unwavering commitment to liberty and bodily autonomy, state courts will become ground zero in this fight. Pledge to be a state courts voter.
