Have you, like many West Virginians, had enough with Conservative Democrats? Minority Whip Sen. Woelfel, along with several other Democrats, who voted for the abortion ban alongside Republicans will likely face no consequences from their party.
Republicans wrote the bill, and several Democrats backed it. It’s time for real opposition with West Virginia’s Greens.Read more
Kiel Corkran (r) is out on Rainbow Blvd with other activists to show his support for the campaign to defeat the anti-abortion constitutional amendment!
Americans’ confidence in the Supreme Court was already at an all time low before the Court issued its decision on Friday. Kiel Cochran believes that the following decision by the court to overturn Roe v Wade was the incorrect one as taking away a woman’s ability to control their own bodies goes against the foundations that make up our most basic rights as free citizens of this country! Kiel believes that at its core we conclude several things about the future of our society, but he finds these 5 to be important.Read more
Roe v Wade being overturned has officially set us back decades of progress. Conservative leadership has just told us that Women do not deserve autonomy. Instead of backing and supporting protections for women in disenfranchised communities we have instead added another obstacle for them to face. Women are abused and impregnated, raped and impregnated, or maybe they simply do not want to have a child and made a mistake.Read more
The National Lavender Green Caucus unequivocally denounces this assault on the bodily autonomy of those who can become pregnant. The leaked draft US Supreme Court opinion first circulated by Politico, if finalized, would throw out nearly five decades of protection for an individual's right to a safe and legal abortion. The draft decision also makes it abundantly clear that the conservative majority on our nation's highest court is setting up future challenges to LGBTQIA+ rights.Read more
The Green Party of the United States urges people to join actions nationwide to protect and expand access to abortion services. We must stop the criminalization of abortions to permanently protect all people's right to safe, legal, accessible, and confidential healthcare. Reproductive rights are non-negotiable!
While Supreme Court Justice Alito's leaked draft opinion is not the final Supreme Court decision, it claims the right to abortion is unconstitutional and attacks the reproductive rights of women, transgender people, and non-binary people. Lack of abortion access will also impact both parents who may be mandated to pay for child support of unwanted pregnancies.
Additionally, the repercussions of ending these reproductive rights may lead to criminalizing the freedom to love and marry on the basis of race or sexual preference.Read more
People keep asking me, "Delilah, how do you feel about the Supreme court leak? How do you feel about Roe V Wade being overturned?" I am appreciative for the attention to this matter. Especially being a censored candidate and activist. However, I have to laugh because we already lost our reproductive rights here in Texas. We have had one of the most restrictive laws, SB8, currently in effect for several months now.Read more
The US Supreme Court's conservative majority is poised to overturn Roe vs. Wade using arguments that impose control over women's bodies that existed before the historic 1973 decision. Going back even to when slavery was allowed to exist.
We must move forward. Slavery in any form should be outlawed, including having the power over a woman's right to choose to be pregnant or not. I am pro-choice, pro-women's rights.Read more

With the Supreme Court due to overturn Roe v. Wade within the coming months, the left has been berated by liberals with the familiar talking point that in order to protect abortion rights we must "vote blue." Predictably, liberals took to social media soon after the leaked draft opinion was reported, blaming Susan Sarandon and other third party voters for the upcoming Supreme Court decision, while completely ignoring the Democratic Party's culpability in this travesty.Read more

On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court issued a decision in Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, a groundbreaking case that found - by the authority of United States Constitution - that pregnant women are permitted to have an abortion without state or federal government interference. Less than a generation later, the spirit and application of this law are being challenged, as was revealed when a draft decision overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked to the press on Monday, May 2, 2022.Read more
