Emergency Petition: The Senate Must End the Filibuster and Codify Roe. v. Wade.

  John, Many of us are still reeling from this week's news that the Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade. From the day this ruling was decided, far-right politicians have worked endlessly to reverse it. They attacked choice in state legislatures through restrictive law…

The Supreme Court may overturn Roe v. Wade

  John, If the reporting is accurate, the right-wing majority on the Supreme Court is about to throw out Roe v. Wade and callously eliminate women's constitutional right to safe and legal abortion access. The effect will be devastating for women everywhere, jeopardizing the health an…
