This is how we fight back

Who should make the decision about whether or when to have a child?

Here's a clue – not Supreme Court Justices.

A leaked draft shows that the Supreme Court is planning to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. That's ignoring precedent and taking rights away from people who have had them for decades. This news is infuriating and dangerous.

Everyone should have the right to decide whether and when to have a child. It's not a decision for judges or politicians or extremists to make.

History shows us that when abortion is banned, it doesn't go away – it becomes unsafe.

It is time for us to fight back. Please join me in donating to the National Network of Abortion Funds to support local organizations that are helping to provide access for all who need it.

I remember the days before Roe v. Wade. It was an unsafe, scary time for many women and girls who found themselves with an unintended pregnancy and didn't know what to do. We fought hard to change that — to provide safety and protect reproductive freedom.

But today more than 20 states have trigger laws that will ban abortion immediately if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Your zip code and wealth should not determine abortion access. I'm thankful that Oregonians will still have access to reproductive health care, but it's not enough.

We will never stop fighting for reproductive justice for all. We fight back by organizing our friends and neighbors. We fight back by working together to elect pro-choice leaders. We fight back by passing laws protecting everyone's reproductive freedom. WE FIGHT BACK BY VOTING.

Right now, I'm asking you to fight back by donating to the National Network of Abortion Funds to protect access for all who need it.

Thank you for standing with me,

Suzanne
