One-third of the Planned Parenthood clinics in Iowa recently closed.
Why? Because Republicans in the state legislature passed a law to defund them.
Republicans in North Carolina's state legislature are shrugging their shoulders at a law that says a woman can't revoke consent during sex.
And in New Hampshire, the state GOP was so eager to pass anti-choice legislation that they accidentally made it legal for a pregnant woman to commit murder.
All of that was JUST IN JUNE.
State-level Republicans are continuing their relentless pace of attacks on abortion access, birth control, and women's rights, and we have to do something about it.
The best way to stop them? Replace them with pro-choice Democratic women.
These attacks on choice are a direct result of Republicans taking over state legislatures and governors' mansions across the country. Since Roe v. Wade, states have enacted a shocking 1,142 restrictions on abortion, and nearly a THIRD of those have been passed in just the last six years.
Women need a strong line of pro-choice defenders who can fight back in state legislatures across the country, and we're ready to make that a reality.
More than 15,000 women have reached out to us about running for office since November, and we're determined to meet them where they are.
We're holding 25 trainings in cities across the country this year — including in Iowa, North Carolina, and New Hampshire — so our sisters in those states can start directly fighting back against these attacks.
We know the resistance will be and must be local. Donate now to recruit, train, and elect pro-choice Democratic women at the state and local level and stop the relentless attacks on choice:
