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 become even higher if Republicans include defunding Planned Parenthood in their repeal bill. 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.

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.
