On December 1, the Supreme Court will hear arguments about a
Mississippi law that would make most abortions illegal after 15
weeks of pregnancy. This is the first direct challenge to Roe v.
Wade that the court has taken up in decades. And if the law
stands, women across the country will likely lose their right to

This law has been blocked by two federal courts already, and it’s
been sitting on the Supreme Court’s docket for a year. But now
that the court’s conservatives have a 6-to-3 majority, they’ve
agreed to hear the case.

We’re about to witness one of the most serious challenges to
women’s reproductive rights since Roe v. Wade was established in
1973. That’s why I’m coming to you now.

Will you take a minute to sign our petition demanding that
women’s reproductive health and rights are protected by the
constitution? We can’t allow this case to move forward without
our voices being heard.

What makes this case so alarming is that if the Mississippi law
is upheld, Roe v. Wade will be overturned. That would then cause
“trigger laws” in 12 states to go into effect, which would
immediately ban abortions in those states, with more states
likely to follow.

Millions of women would be forced to travel long distances to get
an abortion. But women without the means to find and access a
legal abortion might seek out an illegal, potentially unsafe
procedure. Or they might be forced to continue with a risky
pregnancy or birth that puts their life in jeopardy.

My progressive colleagues and I have consistently fought to
preserve the reproductive rights of women, but this is a cause
that requires all of us to stand up and speak out.

Please add your name to our petition before oral arguments are
heard by the Supreme Court on December 1. Experts warn that this
is a perilous moment for Roe v. Wade, so we have to unite and do
everything we can to stop it from being overturned.
