Support over 14,000 women ready to change the future of American politics

In the first months of Donald Trump’s presidency, Republicans have been relentless. From a global gag rule on abortion funding to a devastating health care proposal that would strip health coverage from millions, we’ve seen enormous setbacks for women and families. But there’s hope. Since Election Day, over 14,000 women have told EMILY’s List they are interested in running for office, and more than 7,000 have volunteered to help those women run. That’s over 21,000 people—from every single state and D.C. too—who are ready to make a difference.   With an extreme president and the GOP in control of Congress, the stakes could not be higher. If even a fraction of these women win, we’ll have changed the face of power in American politics for decades to come. It’s been a devastating few months, but we’ve got exactly what it takes to fight back. Join EMILY’s List to be part of the movement that is changing the face of our government, one pro-choice Democratic woman at a time.

Protect Women’s Health Care in 2017

Wasting no time, President Trump and his allies in Congress are prepared to follow through on their promises by repealing Obamacare and taking Planned Parenthood down with it. Now more than ever, we must support the pro-choice Democratic women in Congress who serve as critical checks and balances on the new administration. Obamacare’s impact on women is hard to ignore. Since it was signed into law, the number of uninsured women ages 18 to 64 has decreased by 44 percent, and 55 million women now have access to contraceptives and preventive care with no copay and no cost. Simply put, repealing Obamacare will endanger the health care of women and families. The stakes are even higher since the Republicans’ repeal bill defunds Planned Parenthood. While Obamacare has expanded coverage dramatically, millions of Americans are still without insurance— and for many of them Planned Parenthood is their only avenue to affordable, quality care. Stripping Planned Parenthood of its federal funds means that the 2.5 million patients it services each year could lose access to birth control, STI and HIV testing, maternity care, cancer screenings, and routine check-ups. This is a resource we can’t lose. President Trump and GOP leaders are moving quickly. It’s never been more important to stand with the pro-choice Democratic women in Congress who will defend health care for America’s women and families. Join EMILY’s List to show the new administration that there is a noisy majority that is ready to fight for the health care we deserve.
