In the past Pro Choice candidates couched their support for Abortion Rights without ever using the word "Abortion". They had to--the general public wanted the right to terminate unintended or dangerous pregnancies but the word had become toxic. We, the Pro-Choice, Reproductive Rights community, voted for them anyway--they may have used language that presented Abortion as a tragedy but they protected it as an option. Many deplored that these candidates wouldn't "stand up" and use the word "Abortion."
Since Dobbs overturned Roe v Wade and 5 decades of Abortion access, Pro Choice candidates have fully embraced the word Abortion and campaign to protect and restore access. WE MUST VOTE FOR THESE CANDIDATES! The time for nit-picking, damanding ideologic purity, carping is long over. The make-up of the Supreme Court and what is has been able to accomplish--undoing decades of civil rights work--has shown us we must vote in every election, vote our values and vote practically.
If we do not elect these candidates that have bravely embraced Abortion Rights, bravely embraced even the word "Abortion"--then we are the mealy mouthed cowards, not the politicians.
VOTE FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS! VOTE FOR ABORTION ACCESS! SUPPORT THE POLITICIANS THAT SUPPORT US!
