With anti-choice conservatives dominating the White House and Congress, President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is particularly frightening. It erodes what little ground we have left to protect key issues like abortion access, LGBTQ+ rights, healthcare, and labor and environmental protections. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, individuals in more conservative states will lose access to abortion services, some of them immediately. Globally, restricting abortion will set a precedent for a reversal on reproductive rights and encourage further stigma beyond the already devastating impact of the Global Gag Rule.
We won’t stand by and let the Trump administration continue to revoke abortion access. We’ll be rallying to #StopKavanaugh at the U.S. Capitol at noon (ET) today. Will join us in protecting our rights?
