This is a sad day for people who have lost their fundamental protections, for health care professionals, and for what was once a nation that valued rights to privacy and believed in separation of church and state. Weld County Democrats and indeed Democrats from all of Colorado and the nation, stand in solidarity against the ruling by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. This egregious decision may be just the beginning of the right-wing imposing their religious and personal beliefs on the populace. Justice Thomas, in a concurring opinion, said the high court should reconsider previous rulings involving contraception, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage. People’s lives are at stake, healthcare access is at stake, and the repercussions of this decision for all modern precedents will have disastrous and long lasting effects for years to come.

My son-in-law tweeted this this morning, “They will come for every right we have ever earned in their fanatical mission to turn the US into a theocracy under the guise of constitutional freedoms”.

We need to make our voices heard, and the majority of Americans believe in abortion rights and the right to choose. Fortunately, we live in a state that will vehemently fight for and support this right, but if Republicans win in November, they will make this the law of the land and no state will be able to defend human rights.

More than ever, Democrats need to roll up their sleeves and get to work getting out the vote, and encouraging everyone to vote blue in ’22. Please join us, help us. Never underestimate women’s ability to change the world, for indeed no great effort has been accomplished without us.
