1.    Stop States attacks on Women's Constitutional Rights

Petition to stop the abortion bans ofthe states

We’ve seen the frightening headlines from around the country, with one state after another introducing and enacting 20-week abortion bans, six-week abortion bans, even total abortion bans like the one just signed into law in Alabama. A legislator in Texas even proposed a bill that would give women the death penalty for having abortions!
This dangerous legislation isn’t just happening in the states. The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing for a bill requiring a nation-wide 20-week abortion ban, which if passed, would further victimize women typically facing a devastating medical crisis in their pregnancies. It’s all part of a well-funded extremist agenda to reassert control over women’s bodies and drum up support for anti-abortion politicians in an election year.

Will you sign our petition and join us in speaking out against these horrible attacks on women? Tell your lawmakers they must prioritize the health of their constituents and not the national extremist groups that fund their campaigns.

Poll after poll shows that the majority of the public supports access to safe, affordable and legal abortion. We need to tell politicians to stop their immoral and dangerous efforts to pass even more extreme legislation, designed to attract the attention of a Supreme Court where Brett Kavanaugh could cast the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

YouYour voice is desperately needed on this vital issue; please sign the petition today!

Press forward,

Toni Van Pelt
Executive Director


2. Stop University of California (UC) Hospitals from Partnering with Dignity Health which routinely denies care based on Roman Catholic doctrine.

Stop UC Hospitals partnering with Dignity Health

Everyone has the right to receive the health care they need, free from discrimination. Yet California’s largest hospital system — Dignity Health — routinely denies care based on Catholic doctrine. Hospitals like Dignity Health discriminate against patients based on Catholic principles that call contraception evil and deny the very existence of transgender people. Mistreatment by Catholic hospitals has resulted in infertility, infection, and even death.

The University of California is proposing to partner with Dignity Health. This is unacceptable.

UC prides itself on being at the forefront of reproductive health and LGBTQ-inclusive care. Partnering with Dignity Health flies in the face of everything UC says it stands for. It also runs counter to UC’s obligations as a governmental institution.

To retain the public trust, the University of California — a government entity — should reject its proposed partnership with Dignity Health.

Add your name now to tell the University of California Regents to reject this partnership — because discriminating against patients and denying appropriate health care is not a California value.
