Beginning in March, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case touted as the vehicle which will overturn Roe v Wade and return the abortion decision to the 50 state legislatures. Starting with the March primary, the stakes have never been higher for reproductive rights than they will be in the 2016 elections.
Right now, the fiercest attacks from anti-choice extremists are happening in state legislatures. So far Illinois has held the line while our neighbors have become increasingly hostile to a woman’s right to contraception and abortion. As you can see from the enclosed map, women living in our border states are subjected to mandatory waiting periods, misinformed consent, TRAP laws, forced ultrasounds and other ridiculous road blocks to accessing safe, legal abortion services.
Take action now by finding out who your elected officials are and writing to them to tell them you are a pro-choice voter and will hold them accountable for defeating anti-choice legislation. Be sure to tell them to support the legislation that Personal PAC is tracking.
Help us reduce the stigma around abortion by sharing your personal story about how reproductive rights have affected you or the people around you.
And, as always, remember to vote.
