Good morning! As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, the “forcible rape” language has been removed from HR3, thanks to you and your tireless work. We got over 1000 signatures on our petition, OVERNIGHT. You are amazing. Take a second to engage in some sort of self-applause.
HOWEVER. As I’m sure you also know, everything else about this bill is TERRIBLE. And we can’t stop here. We’ve shown that, when we mobilize, we are a force that can back down Congress. So we need to keep mobilized, because this is a big one, and we can’t afford to lose.
I’m heading out to the GritTV studios right now to discuss HR3 and the possibilities for activism. When I’m back, I’ll be writing more about what’s still wrong with the bill, and what we can do to stop it.
Because, yeah. We won this part of the fight. And that’s another reason we need to keep fighting: Because we won this one. And we can keep winning. There are too many of us to ignore, and we’re too powerful when we all move at once: There’s no way they can keep treating us like collateral damage, when we keep going the way we have been. And, also? Bonus? Winning is really, really, really fun.
