Hi, Fresno County —
Just a few moments ago we learned that Republican leaders in the Senate have scheduled a vote Monday on legislation that would enact an unconstitutional 20-week abortion ban, just one week after the Trump Administration introduced new rules granting health care workers the license to discriminate against women seeking an abortion.
Here’s the truth: I am sick and tired of Republican politicians playing politics with our health care and going out of their way to target women’s constitutional right to choose in the process. We deserve better, which is why I’m asking you to take action:
Tell Republican leaders and my colleagues in Congress to stop attacking women’s health and reproductive rights, and vote down this ban >>
I’ve spent my career in office fighting those who want to roll back decades’ worth of progress on women’s health and reproductive freedom.
Together we fought to require employers to provide employees with no-cost coverage for contraception and 55 million American women benefitted.
Together we advanced legislation in my state of California to ensure that so-called crisis pregnancy centers provide women with accurate information about the full range of reproductive services available to them.
Together we defeated every attempt by Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood since Trump’s election, and we’re never going to stop fighting to make sure those doors stay open and women get the care they need.
And next week, we’re going to defeat this 20-week abortion ban if enough of us make our voices heard right now:
Sign my petition today if you agree that the Republicans’ 20-week abortion ban is immoral and must be defeated in the Senate next week.
Now is the time we must keep fighting to defend and expand on the progress made for women’s rights and reproductive health, not fall backward.
Thanks for all you do,
U.S. Senator, California
