Calling All Democrats To Action
Nearly a century ago today, American women won the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th amendment. As we face new and pressing threats against our rights, our freedoms, and our progress, today’s historic anniversary calls all Democrats to action.
President Donald Trump threatens our progress with a Supreme Court nominee who will tip the court to the far-right for an entire generation. Our hard-fought progressive achievements now hang in the balance, and a woman’s right to choose is no longer a guarantee.
It’s now more important than ever that we move quickly to secure our progress. That’s why Maryland House Speaker Mike Busch is introducing legislation to put an amendment to the Maryland constitution on the ballot that will enshrine a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions.
Across the country, women are fighting back against Trump’s retrograde vision for America.
The situation may seem dire, but I know that if Democrats mobilize, we can protect our progress and make 2018 the year we move Maryland forward. We need your help to make that happen.
