50 years of settled law undone

John, Today, Donald Trump’s 6-3 majority Supreme Court undid 50 years of settled law and overturned Roe v. Wade. This court has shown again and again it will put politics over precedent and people. ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌  ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏…

John – we’re exactly halfway through June, and let me tell you why it’s important: Every month, we set fundraising goals based on what we need to build a campaign that can win this November and stop the GOP from taking over the Attorney General’s office. ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌ ͏‌…
