Women’s reproductive health will be under constant attack under a Trump presidency and a majority Republican House and Senate. Another example of this was recently seen in the Texas Bill 948, which would make abortion a felony, and consequently take away women’s right to vote. The bill was introduced by Republican representative Tony Tinderholt.
Thankfully, this bill seems pretty unlikely to become a law as it goes against Roe vs Wade. However, Trump’s promise to appoint anti-abortion Supreme Court judges will make bills like these much scarier.
People with uteri have the right to safe and legal abortion and we must continue to fight to protect that right under Trump. We must support pro-choice legislators and organizations as we brace ourselves for the next four years.
