It’s Time to Guarantee Paid Family and Medical Leave

The United States is the only developed nation in the world where paid maternity leave isn’t guaranteed. That means almost 90 percent of employees are left without a paycheck when they fall ill, give birth, or care for a family member. In fact, almost a quarter of mothers are forced to go back to work just two weeks after having a baby, in large part because they can’t afford not to. No worker should be penalized for taking care of themselves, a child, or a loved one. It’s time for America to catch up. Women like Senator Kirsten Gillibrand have been pushing for paid family and medical leave — but Republicans who control Congress aren’t interested. We have to elect more pro-choice Democratic women who will fight for paid family and medical leave. Join EMILY’s List, and together we can build a future where America’s families always come first.

Support Pro-Choice Democratic Women

43 years after Roe v. Wade secured the right to a safe, legal abortion, access to women’s health care is under extreme threat. Now more than ever, voters need to elect pro-choice Democratic women who will fight for the reproductive rights of women across the country. Since 2011, 320 state laws have been enacted restricting a woman’s ability to get an abortion, including 30 laws passed just this year. These constraints have forced women to travel hundreds of miles to their nearest clinic or seek out dangerous black-market solutions to terminate their pregnancies.  We need to put an end to this. We know that progressive women politicians are more likely to advocate for policies that support other women and families. Plain and simple—by electing more women at all levels, we can protect reproductive rights once and for all. Join EMILY’s List, where we help support pro-choice Democratic women across the country. Together, we can help protect a woman’s right to choose. Paid for by EMILY's List, www.emilyslist.org, and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
