This news just broke and thousands are taking action. Can you join them?
The political fallout from the Supreme Court’s disastrous decision gutting birth control continues. Starting right now, every politician in Washington will have to go on record: Are they with women and birth control or are they against us?
That’s because just hours ago, Senators introduced a game-changing bill to restore access to birth control for women at corporations like Hobby Lobby to undo the damage the Supreme Court is causing -- and the bill has great momentum already. A vote could happen any day now.
But, for it to pass, we need an overwhelming outcry from women and men all over the country. We need to make clear that voters want leaders who stand with women and that in the year 2014 voting against birth control is more than bad policy -- it’s bad politics too. Can you join the call by adding your name to the petition?
Thanks for taking action.
