Wire Hanger Brigade - #NoScotusVote
Sponsored by The Wire Hanger Brigade:
The Wire Hanger Brigade is snail mailing wire hangers to the undecided 13 senators who could swing the vote on his nomination. All you have to do to send a hanger yourself is select a senator to target, write your letter in this google form, and they'll do the rest.
As you know, the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court should be a major concern for all Americans. His views represent an attack on our health care, our environment, our privacy, and even our ability to hold the current president accountable in civil suits, criminal investigations, and prosecution.
But most importantly, Kavanaugh is very likely to be the deciding voice when it comes to overturning Roe v Wade. The 1973 Supreme Court decision made it possible for women in America to maintain agency over their own bodies and make decisions based on their own health and well-being. Without it, women will once again be forced to find unsafe means to terminate pregnancies, and these wire hangers are a visceral reminder of that time.
