Oklahoma woman speaks out against HB 1549

An Oklahoma woman met with Associated Press reporter Sean Murphy to talk about her own experiences terminating a pregnancy because of a fetal anomaly. She spoke out against HB 1549, which would ban physicians from providing abortion care solely because of a fetal indication, on behalf of women everywhere.

Here’s a sneak peek:

The story helps shine light on a proposed law that lacked compassion and was unconstitutional. We are hopeful the bill will not go any further as it did not move to a committee in the Oklahoma Senate.

Vote Thompson for 4th Congressional District

 

I’m writing this morning to ask you to vote for and support James Thompson for the 4th Congressional District. A civil rights attorney and veteran, James Thompson lines up on the right side of reproductive rights. The special election Tuesday, April 11 for this seat — created when Mike Pompeo went to the CIA — matters. It matters for the women of Kansas and their families. It matters for me, and it matters for you. 

If you need to know where to vote in Wichita, you can find your polling place here.

I know that you are engaged politically and will vote. So I’m hoping you’ll go a step further and help the campaign. James Thompson has been attacked via some vicious and factually untrue TV ads in the past few days, and of course, women once again have been used as a political football. James Thompson believes in a woman’s right to make health care decisions for herself, and we need to stand with him. Will you please volunteer with the campaign? You don’t even have to leave your house to make a difference —  please consider making phone calls to likely voters from the campaign website.

This election matters, and these couple of days leading up till Tuesday matter.

 Thank you for doing your part,

Julie Burkhart
