Women’s Rights are Being Attacked in Columbia
The South Carolina legislature is being called to a special session this week because Republicans had one of the least productive legislative sessions in our State’s history – defined by attempts to ban abortion rights, increase the number of guns on our streets, and censor schoolchildren. The legislature is reconvening on Tuesday, this time in a special session where it will pass a budget and fully fund public education… we’re sadly kidding, of course. This week they will once again attempt to completely ban abortion for South Carolina women.
While Republicans are obsessively focused on the state controlling women’s bodies, Democrats are fighting to protect every woman’s right to choose and return the focus to issues that matter most to South Carolina families. We need your help to ensure that women are free to make their own decsions and tell the Republicans to stop trying to control our bodies:
Democrats in the state legislature are doing everything in their power to stop an abortion ban, and the Charleston County Democratic Party needs your help to elect more Democrats from Charleston County who will vote to protect a woman’s right to choose medical care for her body.
Even though Several Republican women legislators recently made national headlines for joining Democrats in resisting their party’s push to ban reproductive freedom, DO NOT lose sight of the fact that every single Democrat stood up for women and fought back against the Republican majority. If you want reliable votes to protect women’s rights in South Carolina, we need to send more Democrats to Columbia.
