Trump's recent pick for Supreme Court justice, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, means our constitutional right to access safe, legal abortion on the line. Trump promised to appoint justices who would “automatically” overturn Roe v. Wade — and Kavanaugh will tip the balance away from our constitutional right to access abortion and to be free from discrimination.
The Trump administration seems to think the Supreme Court can be used as a machine to push its extreme ideological agenda through. But they underestimate us.
We need to fight back – and we need to fight back now. Many of you have reached out to ask “Can I make a difference to #SAVESCOTUS even though I live here in Massachusetts?”
Our answer: YES.
Here are a couple of ways you can help safeguard reproductive rights and push back against the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back our health and rights:
Both of our U.S. senators have pledged to reject Kavanuagh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and have denounced President Trump’s efforts to use this nomination to restrict abortion access. Let’s make sure our senators know we appreciate their unwavering leadership!
We’re holding virtual phone bank shifts where you can dial in, make phone calls, and connect Planned Parenthood supporters in target states with their Senators. Encourage these supporters to share their personal stories to their Senators about why this Supreme Court nominee matters.
3. Help elect local reproductive health leaders to the MA State House
