  • Tell President Joe Biden: Don't nominate anti-abortion extremists to the courts!
    In the aftermath of the Supreme Court's outrageous and harmful ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, President Joe Biden has reportedly caved to a demand by Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to appoint an anti-abortion extremist to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench. The federal judges below the Supreme Court are the only ones protecting reproductive rights at this point, and we can't afford even one new anti-abortion jurist on the bench. We cannot imagine a more out-of-touch move at this moment. Women overwhelmingly backed Biden over Trump in his bid for the presidency, and now he is taking our votes for granted and using us as bargaining chips. Let's take a look at the record of Chad Meredith, the Kentucky attorney Biden is considering awarding a lifetime position: Meredith has devoted much of his career to defending abortion restrictions in the Bluegrass State, including a controversial law on the books that requires doctors offering abortions to conduct fetal ultrasounds while playing audio of the heartbeat and giving vivid descriptions of the image. Meredith is also a member of the radically conservative Federalist Society, which also counts in its rolls anti-Roe Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. The fact that Senator Mitch McConnell wants Meredith on the federal court bench is all we need to know about Meredith's fitness for the job. We are a resolute NO on this appointment. Tell President Biden he must not consider Chad Meredith or any anti-abortion extremist for our courts!

  • Demand Amazon stop donating to anti-abortion politicians
    Amazon and the rest of corporate America want to reap the benefits of appearing pro-reproductive rights without actually having to stop their donations to candidates actively passing abortion bans. Companies across various industries—from AT&T and Disney to Amazon—have donated to Republicans and extremists for years including Republican governors who are now signing abortion bans into law. Amazon released a statement that “team members should get the care they need" and have offered to reimburse their staff for travel. But that’s simply not enough to combat an issue they’ve contributed to. Amazon has the opportunity to actually support their staff, by ending all donations to Republican and right-wing extremist candidates that will support abortion bans and limit worker’s rights across the country.

  • Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok: Stop Showing Abortion Disinformation Ads to Teens
    These organizations aggressively lie to teens in their most vulnerable moments – telling them abortion is dangerous, that ultrasounds or other procedures are required when they aren’t, and that local clinics don’t have appointments available when they do. This creates a significant public health risk. Some experts estimate abortion bans will increase maternal mortality in women and girls of color by 33%, the same population most likely to see abortion services from a deceitful center. By profiting from these centers’ advertisements, TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat are spreading misinformation about critical health issues to vulnerable kids.

  • San Antonio Must Consider an Abortion Protection Act
    The right to an abortion has been proven to lower the risk of death and injury. San Antonio must be dedicated to protecting the safety of its people. San Antonio must continue to honor the rights of pregnant people to bodily autonomy and private medical decisions.

  • END THE HYDE AMENDMENT BLOCK ON ABORTION FUNDING
    This amendment bars the use of federal funds for abortion healthcare. This means that medicaid recipients, service members, and young people who are most dependant on federally-funded health services cannot access abortion services through their healthcare plan and are left to find the money and resources to seek out this procedure on their own. For many people, this is equivalent to an abortion ban. This amendment unfairly targets our most vulnerable citizens. Abortion healthcare and bodily autonomy should be a human right, not a luxury that only the privileged can afford. We believe all pregnant people deserve access to abortion healcare regardless of their financial status, and demand that this amendment be excluded from the next federal budget.

  • Protect Abortion Access in Kansas by Executive Order
    On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) abused their power and overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that declared a federal constitutional right to an abortion, despite recent polls that suggest 85% of American voters believe the procedure should be legal in some or all circumstances. (Source: https://news.gallup.com/poll/1576/abortion.aspx ) As of June 28, 2022, there are 13 states that have enacted trigger bans—bans or laws that were prepared well before the decision was made on June 24, 2022 that would further restrict or ban altogether the constitutional right to abortion. These states include Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri, with Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt signing the state's trigger ban law only minutes after the SCOTUS decision, which prohibits most abortions, even in the cases of rape or incest. The full text of the AG opinion letter can be found here: https://ago.mo.gov/docs/default-source/press-releases/22-2022.pdf?sfvrsn=39ffd2d_2 It does not stop there—for a person seeking the procedure, Missouri is the worst place to be in the country right now. Since the trigger ban went into effect, more far-right Republican lawmakers are introducing planned provisions to the law that are extreme and ludicrous. Rep. Mary Elizabeth Coleman, a member of the Missouri House of Representatives from the 97th District, representing parts of Jefferson and St. Louis Counties, has put forth a provision that copies the legal strategy behind the Texas law that would allow private citizens to sue "anyone who helps a Missouri resident obtain an abortion out of State."

  • Gov Polis, Act now to make Colorado an abortion sanctuary
    Polis has said that the Dobbs "Ruling doesn’t change anything in Colorado," So no action will be taken outside the regular legislative session. BUT OUR STATE IS ABOUT TO BECOME THE NEAREST SOURCE OF ABORTION SERVICES FOR AN ADDITIONAL 1.2 MILLION WOMEN AND OTHERS OF CHILD-BEARINGAGE FROM OTHER STATES. WE MUST urgently prepare to meet the increased need for abortion services in Colorado and give protection to all those receiving, aiding & providing abortions!

  • "The People's Mandate" (includes abolishing the filibuster and codifying Roe)
    This is important because the people of the United States cannot allow a currently undemocratic institution like the Supreme Court to make incredibly dangerous population-wide decisions which go against facts, logic, and the will of the people.

  • Increase Mental Health Benefits for Medicare Recipients
    With 2.9% of every company's earnings contributing to the SSA, I am urging the decision-makers to consider the welfare of such a diverse community of citizens who are so in need of a hope to hold on to. By making one small step for man, we can rest assured that addressing this issue head-on is the most important leap for mankind during this prevailing crisis. By increasing policies to aid the crisis itself, I believe that taking action will create a domino effect in which others will want to be apart of. It is not too late to make a difference, sign this petition to propel this initiative forward and enact change in our country today.
