Sign the petition: #DefendRoe
A Supreme Court with two Trump Justices, both guaranteed to opposed Roe v. Wade, is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.
If Trump is able to place a second Justice on the Supreme Court, our nation's highest court will move dangerously to the right, eroding protections for almost every marginalized group in the United States for a generation. We have already seen Trump follow through on his campaign threats around instituting a Muslim Ban; criminalizing immigrants; and chipping away at workers’ rights. Now, he is fulfilling the promise of appointing judges who will overturn Roe v. Wade. Whether or not we have ever or will ever be pregnant, our right as women to decide what happens to our bodies is one we MUST protect.
Anti-woman interest groups on the right have been waiting for this moment for decades. They will do whatever it takes to roll back our hard-won right to choose. They’re ready for this fight. But so are we.
Sign this petition to tell ALL U.S. Senators that if they vote to confirm Trump's pick on the court, we will vote them out of office.
From: [Your Name]
To Members of the Senate,
I am writing to inform you that if you vote to confirm Trump's nominee on the Supreme Court, I will do everything I can to vote you out of office.
I know that the nominee will be someone with a demonstrable disregard for women's bodily autonomy and the right to choose. I also know that with this nominee on the Supreme Court, women risk losing the right to reproductive autonomy. This is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.
We will not go back to a time when women resorted to using hangers in attempts to terminate pregnancies.
We will not accept the idea that the government has the right to tell residents of this nation what we can and cannot do with our bodies.
We will not accept the deaths of thousands of women that we can expect to see if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
I expect you to do what is best for the women of the United States and vote against the president's nominee for the Supreme Court.
