Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to codify Roe v. Wade in law, extend ACA subsidies, and expand Medicaid, and tell our Transportation Secretary to start punishing airlines that abuse their customers. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Left Action helps you tell your Congressfolk to codify Roe v. Wade into law, now that our Supreme Court has struck it down. Think of all the girls and women who won’t be able to get the health care they need now – women who survive rape and domestic abuse, women whose fetuses have no organs, women who created half a dozen fetuses through in vitro fertilization, women who won’t survive their pregnancy because of a placental abruption or an egg lodging in their Fallopian tubes, but also women with cancer who get pregnant and whose doctors can’t treat the cancer because their fetus won’t survive the cancer treatment. All the right’s holier-than-thou blustering can’t stack up to that.
The Coalition on Human Needs helps you tell your Congressfolk to extend Affordable Care Act subsidies and expand Medicaid, so that 15 million Americans will still be able to afford health insurance. The American Rescue Plan Act expanded subsidies, but they’ll expire September 30 unless Congress acts, and given Republican/Manchinean/Sineman intransigence, it looks like Congress won’t act, though they could very easily extend the subsidies and fund them without raising taxes on anyone but millionaires. Who gets ACA subsidies and Medicaid? Why, the poorest among us, of course! And yet politicians still cut these programs and then retreat to their yachts. Unless we act, of course.
Finally, Demand Progress helps you tell Transportation Secretary Buttigieg to use his lawfully-granted power (until our Supreme Court takes it away, I suppose!) to punish big airline corporations that abuse their passengers. Of course airline corporations got a lot of COVID relief money to keep folks working, and of course they used that money to cut workers, which has helped cause all the delays that have been in the news. Secretary Buttigieg can put aside burnishing his “bipartisan” bona fides in advance of his 2028 (2024?) Presidential run and fine airlines that delay flights more than three hours and schedule flights without enough workers. But he’ll only do that if he hears from enough of us.
