Our right to privacy, uprooted

  John, The Supreme Court has made its decision final and overturned 50 years of precedent established by Roe v. Wade. We now face the loss of a woman's right to choose and a complete assault on our constitutional right to privacy. The ramifications of the Supreme Court’s decision are p…

re: Today’s GOP Primary

  John, Today, voters will head to the polls to determine our Republican opponent. Chillingly, our Republican opponents have embraced extreme ideologies that will undermine our democracy. From trying to downplay the impact of the Jan. 6th insurrection to denying it was an i…
