Demand the GOP Stop Attacking Our Health Care

This petition had 125,031 supporters


Natalie Weaver is fighting for her eight year old daughter, Sophia’s, life. Sophia suffers from Rett Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that has taken away her ability to walk, talk and do anything on her own. She has severe deformities on her face, hands, and feet, and she has already undergone 21 surgeries.

Sophia requires thousands of dollars of around the clock care every month which is provided in part by a state program funded by Medicaid. When politicians tried to cut that program in North Carolina, Natalie fought for her daughter and other kids with disabilities in her state — and she won. 

When I hear of stories about people like Natalie and Sophia, I am inspired to do more. We need more people like Natalie to pledge to hold politicians accountable when they try to take away health care from the most vulnerable people in society.

I’m asking you to sign this pledge and become a Health Care Voter who will speak up for children like Sophia.

Over the past 10 months, as President Trump and Republicans in Congress have attempted to strip health care from millions of families, Natalie left her home state of North Carolina and headed to Capitol Hill where she made her voice heard -- on behalf of her daughter whose life is on the line. She continued to speak up for months and months and months to tell Sophia’s story.

Elected officials work for us. As constituents, we need to come together to speak out against the GOP’s efforts to undermine our health care system and demand our elected officials support policies that strengthen, not threaten, our health coverage.

Join me and Natalie and become a Health Care Voter, to demand the GOP stop attacking the life-saving health care millions of families depend upon — pledge to hold your elected officials accountable for the votes they have taken and will continue to take and support those who fight to protect affordable, accessible, and high-quality health care.
