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.

Neil Gorsuch Is a Threat to Women’s Health Care

After obstructing President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Republicans in Congress have the conservative voice they were hoping for: Neil Gorsuch. Now that he has been officially sworn in, Gorsuch is another conservative opinion on the court, fulfilling President Trump’s campaign promise to appoint “anti-choice” judges. Now, more than ever, we need pro-choice Democratic women at all levels of government to help protect women’s access to health care — and challenge Republicans in power. Gorsuch has a dangerous record on women’s health care — having voted twice to deny contraceptive coverage or access for women. He’s sided with an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, ruled in favor of corporations limiting women’s access to health care options, and left room in his writings for health care providers to deny women abortions because of their personal beliefs. With the Supreme Court likely to hear cases threatening Roe v. Wade, we know one thing is for certain — Neil Gorsuch will put women’s health care protections at risk. With so many threats facing America’s women and families, it’s time to take action. Join EMILY’s List, where we help elect pro-choice Democratic women across the country who will fight for women’s health care.

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.

Stand Up for Choice

Donald Trump and Mike Pence have brought their extremist anti-choice views to the White House, joining a Republican Congress that has already made defunding Planned Parenthood a priority. Add your name today to stand with pro-choice Democratic women in Congress who will fight to protect a woman’s right to choose. We also need to stand up for abortion access at the state level. Already, more than 320 state restrictions have forced women to travel hundreds of miles to the nearest clinic or seek out dangerous black-market solutions to terminate their pregnancies. Now is the time to let the Republicans know we won’t tolerate these attacks. Sign the pledge to stand with EMILY’s List and pro-choice Democratic women at all levels who will fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.
