Hi there, friend, I wanted to bump my email from the other day because Majority Leader Schumer JUST announced that the U.S. Senate will vote next week to codify the right to seek an abortion into federal law. My team just pulled the latest records, and I still don't see your name on my petition to protect women’s health care.
I'll be frank with you on this: The GOP has spent decades trying to undo Roe v. Wade and some Republicans are already discussing plans to pass a nationwide six-week abortion ban if they get back the majority.
As chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, I'm working every single day to defeat this radical agenda and expand our Senate majority – but our Democratic senators need your help right now to ensure the right to seek an abortion is protected. The only way we're going to win this thing and protect against these attacks on abortion access is if people like you stand with me during the moments that really count, moments like this one.
So please, will you join me and fight for abortion access by signing onto my petition before 11:59 p.m. tonight? It's critical that we show a united front right now.
Thank you for making your voice heard.

Subject: The fight is right here, and we have to fight back
Friend, it's Gary. You've probably heard already, but reports suggest that the Supreme Court is preparing to OVERTURN Roe v. Wade. In other words: The Supreme Court appears poised to destroy abortion rights in this country as we know it and impose cruel new restrictions on women’s health care.
And let’s be clear: This was the culmination of a decades-long effort by Republicans to overturn Roe v. Wade. If Republicans had their way – they would pass legislation to make abortion illegal across the country with no exceptions.
I will never stop fighting to defend abortion access, but we'll only win this fight if everyone stands together. So please, can you add your name RIGHT NOW to show that a clear majority of Americans support Roe v. Wade?
ADD YOUR NAME: Stand with Roe:
Just like it is for so many Americans, this issue is deeply personal to me. I shared my family’s story with abortion because families all across the country face similar heartbreaking tragedies and incredibly difficult choices each and every day.
I can’t reiterate this enough: If the conservative justices vote to strike down Roe v. Wade – which appears likely – it will result in very real and tragic consequences for people from all walks of life. And it sends a horrible signal for the future of our country.
You see, attacks against the right to an abortion are attacks against all of us – against our access to health care, against our autonomy, against our dignity and against the human rights and civil liberties we hold dear.
This news is scary, difficult and overwhelming. But I will never – ever – give up this fight.
This is not and cannot be the end – and it’s why we must protect and expand our Democratic Senate majority.
Defending abortion access and defeating the dangerous extremism sweeping across our country starts with people like you standing up and speaking out. So please, will you add your name to my petition and make your voice heard? I'm counting on getting 85 more signatures from DC before midnight to show a united force.

Republicans are trying to push our country backward. But together, I know that we can overcome them and secure a brighter future for us all.
