But unfortunately, since the Supreme Court struck down Roe. wadethat guaranteed women the right to abortion, at least half of the women in this country now live in states with strict abortion bans, which prevent them from accessing the procedure even if they have been raped, are victims of incest, or have sexual problems. health conditions that could make pregnancy dangerous for them.

They can no longer make their own decisions about reproductive health care. Decisions about the most personal aspect of their lives. You may be living in one of those states yourself. Do you think this is fair? Men can still decide what they want about their bodies and their health.

Also, Republicans were furious when they were supposed to wear masks to stop the spread of the deadly Covid virus. They protested very loudly that the mask mandates were a government invasion of their liberty and liberty.

But isn’t it a much, much greater invasion of your freedom for state governments to tell you that you HAVE to have a baby if you have an accidental pregnancy or if you are raped?

November 8th gives you the opportunity to fight back by voting for Democratic candidates in your state who will work to restore access to abortion. Or who will protect your access, if abortion remains legal where you live. Only Democratic candidates for governor and state legislatures will do that. Republicans across the country at the state, local, and federal levels are fully committed to banning abortion.

Ask yourself the following questions and remember that your You can be directly affected by abortion bans, even if you personally never thought you would want or need an abortion.

Want to make your own decision about whether you’re ready to start a family? Do you want immediate medical attention if you have a miscarriage? Do you want a doctor to act without delay if you are forced to have an abortion to save your life during a high-risk pregnancy, or do you really prefer politicians to decide these issues?

Do you really want to have to wait until you are close to death before you can abort in a medical emergency? This is because most abortion bans only allow you to have the procedure if there is a very serious risk that you will die.

For example, take what happened to Amanda Zurawski. Amanda is a 35 year old Texan who was happily 18 weeks pregnant after a year of fertility treatments. She was devastated when she learned that her pregnancy was no longer viable due to a condition where her cervical tissue ruptured too early and she began to leak amniotic fluid. Without an immediate abortion, she was at high risk of developing a serious infection, except she was in Texas and the heart of the unborn, nonviable fetus was still beating.

Doctors sent Amanda home to wait 4 days until she was sick enough with a life-threatening sepsis infection. When she was finally admitted to the hospital for an abortion, she was incoherent and almost died from the infection.

Amanda spent a week in ICU before finally recovering. But she still doesn’t know if she will be able to have children now because of the scar tissue left by the infection in her uterus.

“Amanda almost died. I am so scared for everyone else this is going to happen to,” her husband Josh said. today’s program.

You must also vote for Democrats to represent you in your state legislatures and to be your senators and members of the House of Representatives in Congress. Even if you live in New York state, which is usually blue, there’s a good chance the governor, who supports reproductive rights, kathy could be defeated by the Republican candidate lee zeldinwho has changed her mind about her stance on abortion, according to Political.

So, New York readers, your vote will count for a lot! Please vote!

No woman who values ​​the right to make her own reproductive decisions should be left out of this choice. If any of you want to have the option of conceiving through IVF because it might be your only chance to have a baby, he should vote Democrat.

Many Republican politicians who have already banned abortion in their states have indicated that they will consider banning popular methods of contraception like the IUD and the pill if they are elected or re-elected.

So don’t forget that Senator Lindsay Graham has already introduced a bill to Congress for a NATIONAL ban on abortion after the 15th week. that they do are high, the national 15-week abortion ban will be passed. The only thing that will stop him will be President Joe Biden vetoing it…for now.

Which brings us to 2024… If democracy itself is something you care about, your ability to vote for who you want to run your state and run the country, that’s another reason why you should vote Democrat for all positions, including the state attorney general. and the Secretary of State for your state. candidates like Mallory Mc Morrow Michigan State Senate candidate for Florida State Attorney allison millerand candidate for the Florida House of Representatives roman water.

That’s because virtually every Republican candidate has pledged to support donald trump’s Big electoral lie, about the theft of the 2022 elections. It was NOT stolen. It was a free and fair election that Joe Biden won with 81 million votes to Trump’s 74 million.

However, Trump could not accept that he was a loser and has now endorsed a whole list of candidates who deny the election, such as kari lakerunning for Governor of Arizona, Doug Mastrianorunning for governor of Pennsylvania, Tudor Dixonrunning for Governor of Michigan, and Tim Michels, running for governor of Wisconsin. They all promised that, if elected, they would make sure to use their power to decide the results of future elections, according to the Washington Post. Republican candidates like Ron Johnsonrunning for Senate in Wisconsin, and Kari Lake have also refused to say they will accept the results of their own elections if they don’t win.

So I have to ask you, do you want your votes in all future elections to be counted fairly? Or do you want the election results in your state overturned by a governor, secretary of state, or attorney general who denies the election?

It is a fact that only the Republican candidates are suggesting overturning the results they don’t like. Only the Republican candidates say they will not accept the election results if they lose. Just like Donald Trump.

That is why democracy itself is on the ballot. Think about it: If your vote doesn’t count in the future, then you’ll be living in a dictatorship under one party or a president with no term limit, like Donald Trump.

Is that what you want? Economies and businesses don’t thrive under dictatorships, so no, the economy won’t be any better under full Republican rule.

LGBTQ rights and minority rights are often restricted in dictatorships. The freedom to think and speak and to learn are things that are restricted in dictatorships. If you think the staggering number of books being banned from schools and public libraries right now is bad, just wait until you live under a dictatorship.

Just think of what life is like for the people of Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. Talk about losing your freedom.

That may seem unimaginable to you today, November 7, at this moment in this country that has been, until now, the largest democracy in the world. But all that could change tomorrow if you don’t vote.

Tomorrow, vote for Democratic candidates who will protect your right to make your own health care decisions and your right to vote and have that vote counted in every election going forward.

November 8 is voting D-day. Do it! Vote for democracy.
