  4. Brett Kavanaugh just declared war on Roe v. Wade.

    Last night, Kavanaugh joined three other anti-choice justices to support a law that would have shut down most of Louisiana’s abortion clinics.1 Thankfully, Kavanaugh wasn’t in the majority–but it’s a short-term victory. The case will come back for a final decision.

    Now more than ever, it looks like it’s only a matter of time before such a clinic shutdown law is allowed to go into effect, severely gutting Roe v. Wade.

    To fight back, we’re teaming up with the New Orleans Abortion Fund, which provides women with the financial help they need to access abortion care–and those needs are likely about to increase dramatically. Meanwhile, UltraViolet is mobilizing to block new anti-abortion laws in other states to keep abortion legal AND accessible.

    Will you chip in $5 today? Your contribution will be split 50/50 between UltraViolet and the New Orleans Abortion Fund.

    Louisiana’s clinic shutdown law is nearly identical to the Texas law struck down by the Supreme Court in the Hellerstedt vs. Whole Woman’s Health case in 2016. Louisiana’s legislature even admitted it was the same–it just hoped the Kavanaugh Court would ignore Hellerstedt.2

    And that’s exactly what Kavanaugh voted to do, even writing a dissent saying he didn’t find the onerous requirements of the law that burdensome. Justice Roberts voted to uphold the Hellerstedt decision and block the Louisiana clone, even though he voted against Hellerstedt in the first place.3 We can’t rely on the good faith of Chief Justice Roberts to uphold precedent and protect Roe. We need to stop these unconstitutional laws from being passed, period.

    With so much at stake, it’s all hands on deck to save abortion rights. Will you chip in $5? Your contribution will be split 50/50 between UltraViolet and the New Orleans Abortion Fund.

    Roberts, Kavanaugh, and the anti-choice majority now can either review the law fully and possibly overturn Hellerstedt, or let the stay expire, allowing the law to go into effect. That would shut down every abortion provider in Louisiana but one. And we don’t mean just one clinic–this law would literally leave one doctor statewide who may provide abortion care.5

    Make no mistake: Despite his ruling, Justice Roberts is not a friend. Roberts has voted for every other abortion restriction he’s ruled on.6 When the Court takes up Roe v. Wade in the future–whether by a challenge to Louisiana’s shutdown law, Iowa’s six-week abortion ban, or any of the other 20 cases moving through the system right now—Roberts will vote against Roe. And now we know for sure that Kavanaugh will, too.

    A challenge to Roe v. Wade is coming, and it will happen soon. We need to be ready–or we could lose one of the most important rights women hold, the right to control our own bodies.

    We need to stand with women in Louisiana while fighting state by state to keep abortion safe and legal everywhere. Will you chip in $5? Your donation will be split 50/50 between UltraViolet and the New Orleans Abortion Fund

    Yes, I’ll chip in $5.

    Thank you for joining in.
