EMILYs List Condemns “On Notice” Representatives for Undermining Abortion Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Today, the Supreme Court began hearing arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that lays the groundwork to overturn Roe v. Wade. With the unprecedented threat to abortion care, EMILYs List condemns 27 “On Notice” House Republicans. Laphonza Butler, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:

“These 27 House Republicans have continuously advanced an extreme, partisan agenda to the detriment of their constituents. Each one of these members voted against the Women’s Health Protection Act despite reproductive care facing unprecedented threats. They have been unyielding in their attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, which millions of Americans depend on for life-saving medical care. And many of these same Republicans signed onto an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. The Court beginning to hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization has reignited the fight to replace these anti-choice leaders with Democratic pro-choice women who will work to protect reproductive freedom.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 million to elect Democratic pro-choice women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,300 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state, and national offices. In our effort to elect more women in offices across the country, we have created our Run to Win program, expanded our training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women.
