Midterm elections are a week away and there couldn’t be a more important time to vote! Statewide laws will show up on ballots across the country that will harm our sisters in Texas, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Ohio, Arkansas, and many other states. We need to fight for our rights over our own bodies, our voices, and basic human equality. The time is now to say NO to laws that allow rapists custody and rights to a child resulting in rape (29 states), and NO to being without an abortion provider (89% of states). We have recently seen the horrible things that can happen when a state restricts our rights to accessible abortions and birth control.
