A powerful ad released today by The Lincoln Project takes aim at Republican governors who’ve restricted rights, particularly women’s rights.
The ad was released just one day before 650 marches are scheduled in all 50 states to protest those who restrict reproductive rights. Watch the ad above. USA Today writes:
Women’s March executive director Rachel O’Leary Carmona said that while abortions have never been fully accessible, a Mississippi challenge to the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, Texas’ abortion legislation, and the possibility of other states following the Lone Star State with similar laws, represent an “unprecedented attack” on reproductive freedoms.
“For a long time, groups of us were ringing the alarm bell around abortion access and many of us were told we were hysterical and Roe v. Wade will never be overturned,” Carmona said. “But now it’s clear that our fears were both rational and proportional. We are at a break-glass moment for America, and now’s the time for mass mobilization and federal action.”
