We Must #ProtectRoe
When Donald Trump ran for president, he said he would elect ‘pro-life’ Supreme Court justices – that means justices who would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and decimate the right to legal abortion. We took him at his word then, and now that time is upon us. With the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Trump made true on his promise to nominate those against abortion rights and many other progressive causes we hold dear. We will not let this stand. As an organization committed to direct action, this is exactly what we were built for, though we never would have asked for a struggle this dire. Join us now to #ProtectRoe and hold accountable those poised to take our rights. We absolutely cannot go back.
This fight’s going to be long, and that means we need our allies to hold strong. I’m proud that our activists agreed it’s important to call in the left just as much as calling out the right.

Wade Supreme Court ruling, the Affordable Care Act, and also highlighted the accompanying danger that lies in confirming a supporter of presidential self-pardons in the midst of a very public federal investigation of the White House.
