In His Own Words

 "Ever since the US Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade, Republicans have led an all out assault on women’s reproductive freedom and a woman’s right to choose. Every year, Republicans in red states pass anti-abortion legislation that threatens to upend 50 years of Supreme Court precedent, strip away women’s bodily autonomy, and endanger women’s health. And every year we collectively hold our breaths as these new restrictions that deny women healthcare work their way through a rigged court system that Mitch McConnell stacked with mostly unqualified conservative judges." 1
