Where are the children, Mike Pence? #keepfamiliestogether

Mike Pence is coming to Illinois. Join us in letting him know his politics are not welcome here. Mike Pence is anti-woman, anti-lgbtq+, anti-worker and anti-human. Everything Democratic (and most Republican!) women in Illinois stand for Mike Pence is against. Help us send a message to Pence and the administration that he represents, we won't tolerate their hateful rhetoric and actions here in Illinois.

 

Action 2: Submit a Comment to HHS in Opposition of their Title X Gag Rule  

There are just 3 weeks left before the Title X gag rule comment period ends (July 31) -- a critical window to fight for a delay in the policy.

The Trump Administration Title X Gag Rule will do 4 main things:

  • Implement new rules designed to make it impossible for millions of patients to get birth control or preventive care from Planned Parenthood and other providers;
  • Gag doctors, nurses, hospitals, and community health centers across the country from referring  their patients for safe, legal abortion.
  • Remove the guarantee that patients get full and accurate information about their health care from their doctor.
  • Remove requirement that contraception be medically approved, and that providers ensure access to full range of birth control.

Take these Actions today:

  1. Add your name NOW and post a comment https://ppact.io/2kfmvS1
  2. Text TITLE X to 22422
  3. And share this post on Facebook.

Action via PPIL.

 

 

Action 3: Tell Senators to Oppose the NRA's pick for SCOTUS

Donald Trump made a promise to never let the NRA down, and he's keeping that promise by nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh has made it clear that he would strike down restrictions on the AR-15 and other assault-style weapons, and would put in jeopardy the full range of gun safety laws — including minimum age requirements, responsible storage requirements, and other common-sense gun safety laws that state and local governments have put in place to keep their citizens safe. For example, he dissented on a 2011 ruling to uphold a ban on assault weapons and require all fire arms be registered.

The NRA has been banking on Trump to do its bidding. By nominating Judge Kavanaugh, Trump made good on his promise to never let the NRA down; and the NRA is ecstatic

We need to do everything we can right now to get our senators to OPPOSE Trump's SCOTUS pick. A simple "no" vote is not enough, we need Durbin and Duckworth to be vocal and work their colleges in the senate to also OPPOSE Kavanaugh'snomination for Supreme Court Justice.

Call Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC: 202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

ScriptHi, my name is {NAME} and I'm a constituent in the {ZIP CODE} and member of Indivisible. I'm calling to ask {Senator} to block Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh's extreme view of the Second Amendment puts gun rights above public safety and would endanger the common sense gun laws we're working for in Illinois. It's critical that the next Supreme Court nominee has a commitment to common sense approaches to the Second Amendment that put people's lives ahead of extremism. Thank you.
