"We will mobilize millions of women across the country to exercise their right to vote out any elected official who stands in the way of our freedom to choose what happens in our bodies."
Elise Bryant, President of the Coalition of Labor Union Women
This is Elise Bryant, president of the coalition of labor union women.
The coalition of labor union women was founded in 1974, the year after Roe V. Wade confirmed a woman's constitutional right to an abortion. The CLUW founding mothers believe in a woman's right to a safe termination of her pregnancy. And we still believe everyone has that right.
The U.S. Supreme court today overturned Roe V. Wade and Planned Parenthood versus Casey and declared that the U.S. constitution no longer protects the right to abortion. This decision marks the end of a constitutional right to abortion for people across the country.
And now today, the court sets the stage for increased criminalization and policing of people for basic healthcare decisions.
We have to use our power to fix this.
It won't be quick or easy, but those of us, the majority in this country who support freedoms to control our body’s lives and futures will succeed in reversing this.
We will march. We will protest. And most importantly, we will vote.
We will mobilize millions of women across the country to exercise their right to vote out any elected official who stands in the way of our freedom to choose what happens in our bodies.
There was an old saying that goes, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
We say, hell hath no fury like pro-choice women at the ballot box.
Get ready because we are coming for every anti-choice candidate and we will vote you out. So consider yourself warned.
No justice, no peace, no justice, no peace.
