Yesterday morning, we got a rare win at the Supreme Court: In a unanimous opinion, the Justices preserved widespread access to mifepristone, one of two ingredients in the abortion pill.

Sixty-three percent of abortions are medication abortions, and it is the main avenue by which people in states where abortion is outlawed are still able to terminate pregnancies. Court-imposed limitations would have imposed the biggest barrier to abortion access since it overturned Roe v. Wade almost exactly two years ago. 

Of course this isn’t the end of the fight. The Court didn’t rule on the constitutionality of the abortion pill or access to abortion care. Instead, it found the defendants—an anti-choice group founded in the wake of Roe’s fall—didn’t have standing. More creative legal minds could find another way to restrict abortion at the Court, and in the meantime, MAGA extremists in Congress could ban the abortion pill, ban contraception and target reproductive medicine. For example: 

  • Last week, Senate Republicans blocked a Democratic bill that would guarantee access to contraception nationwide; 
  • Today, Senate Republicans are expected to vote down another Democratic bill protecting IVF access; 
  • Conservatives’ ‘Project 2025’ wish list should Trump be re-elected calls for withdrawing the abortion pill from the market.

Democrats must hold the White House so we can block anti-choice legislation. But we also need to hold the Senate and win back the House to protect reproductive rights rights from a right-wing Supreme Court that is bent on rolling them back.

That’s why we’re asking you to celebrate this stay-of-execution for medication abortion by giving $35 or more to our Red-to-Blue Reach Congress slate.

We’ve included six women challengers in Likely R races that are flippable under the right circumstances. Plus, we’ve included Kamala—because it’s thanks to Biden-Harris Administration policies that mifepristone access was expanded in the first place.
