“Never before have women and activists across the country felt more urgency to come forward and speak out against the political forces that have denied their right to make life-changing decisions about their own bodies,” said Rachel Carmona, executive director of the Women’s March. “We are excited to elect more women and pro-choice candidates across the country who will protect reproductive freedoms and reject proposals to restrict abortions. We are at the 11th hour. We must work together to take back our power and guarantee women’s fundamental right to bodily autonomy, for the good of all Americans and future generations. That means showing up in droves on October 8 and showing Republicans and the GOP that the female wave is here to stay.
