E-Blast: SCOTUS Hearings and Protecting Reproductive Rights



SCOTUS Hearings and Protecting Reproductive Rights

For the past two weeks, I have focused on two fights: 
  1. Urging Democrats to defend Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson against GOP attacks
  2. Sounding the alarm on the predicted end of Roe v. Wade and the right to an abortion for millions of women
As Justice Jackson was confirmed, we were quickly reminded why Democrats must stay in the fight to protect abortion rights for millions of women. Just this week, Texas police arrested and charged a woman of color with murder for having a so-called “illegal abortion.” Such dehumanizing treatment will not be an isolated incident if the Supreme Court guts Roe v. Wade in June. Democrats NEED to sound the alarm to protect reproductive health for millions of women.

Here are a few of our media appearances: 
I spoke with Charles Ellison on WURD TV and Radio about how young and Black Democratic voters want the Democratic Party to show enthusiasm during the SCOTUS hearings, confirmation and really fight for something.  
Watch my full interview with Charles on Reality Check: 
HIT Strategies spokesman Jermaine House did the same by urging Democrats to continue finding ways to affirm Judge Jackson for the public to see their fight.  
I joined Clay Cane on SiriusXM Urban View’s The Clay Cane Show to discuss the SCOTUS confirmation hearings and Black voters. 
I also spoke about the fight for reproductive rights with Politico’s Zach Montellaro and Alice Miranda Ollstein. We discussed how abortion access is a motivating issue for Democratic voters, but they are largely unaware of the imminent threat to Roe v. Wade. Those living in “blue” states believe they will be safe even if Roe is overturned.
