Roe v. Wade may be overturned. What we do next:

All across the country, right-wing legislatures are enacting anti-abortion laws, driven by politics and the notion that women should not have the freedom to decide whether or when to bear a child.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear a case from Mississippi, where a Republican majority is trying ban almost all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Let's be clear: After Donald Trump appointed three anti-choice justices to the Supreme Court, this is the case that activists hope will finally overturn Roe v. Wade.

Abortion is health care, and access should not be restricted or blocked. And whether to get an abortion should be a decision made solely by the person who is pregnant, in consultation with trusted health care professionals.

Additionally, anti-abortion laws disproportionately affect marginalized communities and low-income people. Wealthy people will always find a way to end an unwanted pregnancy; that's been true for a century.

Although we hope for a just outcome, we must prepare for the worst. The House has passed a federal law that protects the right to an abortion; now the Senate must do the same.

This is one of the many reasons why it is so important to maintain a Democratic majority in 2022. History is against us. Gerrymandering is against us. Powerful special interests are against us. But we must remain united and work as hard as we can to build a powerful grassroots campaign that aligns with our values.

Our freedoms are at stake. I'm counting on you to donate now so we can win this fight.

Thank you for standing with me,

Suzanne Bonamici
