MISSION: Inspired by Indivisible: A Practical Guide For Resisting the Trump Agenda and the Indivisible on Offense guide, we are uniting folks in Oregon’s 4th & 5th congressional districts to defeat the right-wing agenda. We are fighting for a better and more just future for all, today and every day.

THE END OF ROE V. WADE

A DRAFT DOCUMENT, CONFIRMED AUTHENTIC, SHOWS THE EXTREMIST RIGHT-WING SUPREME COURT IS OVERTURNING ROE V. WADE THIS YEAR, ENDING THE FEDERALLY-GUARANTEED LEGAL RIGHT OF A WOMAN TO TERMINATE HER PREGNANCY.  More than half the states have already made or are about to make abortions illegal in almost all circumstances—often with NO exceptions for rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother.

WE NEED AN ENGAGED PUBLIC TO STAND UP AND SAY, ENOUGH!  WE NEED EVERYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH THIS DECISION TO MAKE THEIR PRESENCE FELT AT THE BALLOT BOX IN NOVEMBER!

EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO PROTECT THEIR BASIC INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS NEEDS TO GET ENGAGED, RIGHT NOW, IN ELECTING CANDIDATES WHO WILL DO SO!  HARNESS YOUR RAGE TO PRODUCTIVE ACTION!

This is not just about reproductive rights.  The legal arguments used in this opinion have far wider ramifications, and show that the extremists in the court majority intend to revoke or roll back everyone’s privacy rights, along with revoking same-sex and interracial marriage, the right to birth control, the ability to vote, etc.  It’s not unlikely that, following their destruction of Roe, they’ll eventually decree a nationwide ban on abortion rights.

Some of the extremist judges who are now striking down Roe claimed in their confirmation interviews that it was “settled law.”  They were lying.  They cannot be trusted, and despite anything they may claim, there’s no telling how far they’ll go in ignoring the precedents of other past rulings previously regarded as “settled”, in a concerted attempt to remake the country in an extreme right-wing image that’s fundamentally out-of-step with most of the public and our society and government as we know it.

While it won’t all happen overnight—these things rarely do—this is a clear first step in rolling back all the gains in individual rights over the last 60+ years.  And by the time we realize how much freedom we’ve lost, there may not be much we can do about it within the legal confines they’re imposing.  THIS IS NOT A DRILL.  WE ARE AT THE POINT, RIGHT NOW, WHERE A FREE SOCIETY TIPS INTO FASCISM.   THE SUPREME COURT IS ATTEMPTING TO IMPOSE THEOCRACY ON THE REST OF US.  IT MUST BE STOPPED.

In order to get politicians who will vote to CODIFY ROE V. WADE with national legislation and PROTECT OUR RIGHTS to privacy and control over our own bodies, WE MUST VOTE.  WE MUST VOTE FOR, RELENTLESSLY CAMPAIGN FOR, AND DONATE HEAVILY TO PRO-CHOICE POLITICIANS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY, AT ALL LEVELS.  We must have a decisive majority of the U.S. House in pro-choice hands.  We must have a Senate with enough GENUINELY PRO-CHOICE members to break (or vote to abolish) the filibuster, so legislation protecting our right to choose nationwide can pass.  The current razor-thin Democratic “majorities” are not enough; we need greater numbers of solidly, reliably pro-choice politicians in both houses!  We must FIGHT BACK against this extremist, authoritarian ruling AND WORK HARD to elect a WAVE of pro-choice politicians into solid majorities to protect all our rights.  We must retake not only Congress, but statehouses and governorships across the country.

Obstructionists such as Manchin or Sinema, masquerading under the “Democratic” label without being willing to take any practical action to protect our rights, must be made irrelevant by greater numbers of genuinely pro-choice senators, so the obstructionists’ votes are no longer needed.

Electing a BLUE HOUSE AND SENATE will also make it easier to reform the Supreme Court—as will likely be necessary to prevent it from imposing a radical right-wing agenda—and more difficult for trumpists to steal the next presidential election, as they will doubtless try to do in 2024.  We must, at all costs, keep the White House in Democratic hands in 2024, to prevent anti-choice zealots from appointing any more Supreme Court justices.  The vicious extremists on the current Court have lost the last shred of their legitimacy and the trust of the public.

THE TIME TO FIGHT BACK IS NOW.  THE ELECTION IS IN NOVEMBER.

LET’S GET IT.

Latest actions from Indivisible Oregon, updated frequently:

http://www.indivisibleor.org/todays-action/

Volunteer for and donate to Secretary of State campaigns across the country, especially in swing states!

Secretaries of State across the country oversee elections in their states, and can have huge impacts on how votes are counted (and whose vote is counted)—and trumpists intent on stealing the next election are DRASTICALLY outraising Democrats—$33 million to $4 million so far in 2022. https://thehill.com/…/589480-secretary-of-state-races…

PLEASE DONATE TO AND/OR VOLUNTEER FOR SECRETARY OF STATE CANDIDATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHO ARE COMMITTED TO DEMOCRACY AND SUPPORT OF VOTING RIGHTS–NOT TO THROWING OUT RESULTS THEY DON’T LIKE ON BEHALF OF THE TRUMPIST PERSONALITY CULT.  Secretaries of State are a last line of defense for democracy, and we MUST NOT let trumpists corrupt these offices and use them to do what they failed to do on January 6th. Please donate as often as you possibly can.  But don’t forget that volunteer time–phonebanking, textbanking, and reaching out to your friends in the relevant states—is even more valuable than donation dollars.

PRIMARY SINEMA!

Arizona Senator Sinema is standing in the way of passing voting rights protections, and of Biden’s Build Back Better bill, which includes needed action to address the climate crisis.  NO ONE WHO TURNS A BLIND EYE TO VOTER SUPPRESSION IS FIT FOR OFFICE.   She must either be recalled as soon as possible, or be removed when her term ends in 2024.  Give to the Primary Sinema fund here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ps-ads-gs-20211015-launch?source=ads_ms_PS_20211015-DD-GS-Launch_brandedkw-Natl-1865U-MF_a002-PS-Branded2-gstxt-txt&gclid=Cj0KCQiAubmPBhCyARIsAJWNpiNb4BvQncCBWTiD5bl-5U3VxNg2_JRL9qeJeZp1f1RuZwJOc8XCAjoaAsf8EALw_wcB

DEMAND FULL ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE JAN. 6TH COUP ATTEMPT!

-Remember each trumpist who voted against accountability for a violent coup, and let’s WORK LIKE HELL to flip their seats this year!

☎️ Demand that Congress use the 14th Amendment to ban trump and other insurrectionists from ever holding public office again. Help others to do the same. Every single day.

After trump’s incitement of a VIOLENT ASSAULT AND COUP ATTEMPT AGAINST CONGRESS, he has been impeached a second time, but acquitted by depraved cult followers in the Senate.  He MUST NOT BE LEGALLY ALLOWED TO HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE EVER AGAIN! Contact your Senators NOW and DEMAND THAT THEY BAN TRUMP FROM EVER HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE IN THE FUTURE!
