Progressives Fight for the Rights of Women and Will of the Majority


The majority of Americans support abortion rights, so what gives the Supreme Court the “right” to overturn established law and the federal Constitutional right to abortion? Far right justices, who lied under oath during their confirmation hearings, cannot be allowed to impose their extreme theocratic ideology on the American people, and this is just the beginning.


“The Progressive Democrats of Orange County (PDOC) applauds the Triangle District Attorneys and DA candidates who have pledged not to prosecute women seeking abortions or their health care providers if, in fact Roe v. Wade is overturned,” according to Rebecca Cerese, PDOC president.


Abortion is still legal. If we act now, it may always be. Now is not the time to give up, but to re-commit to raising our voices for reproductive rights. Calling, text and meet with our elected representatives. Get everyone out to vote for candidates who unequivocally support reproductive rights and health, especially for women of color and those lacking access to health care. Educate our families, friends and neighbors about this travesty of an attack against our Democracy and our Constitution.


Enough is enough! The will of the people is that abortion AND reproductive health care remain safe, legal and accessible for all. Women’s rights are human rights. LGBTQ+ rights are human rights. Who knows what rights the Radical Right will go after next?
