Protect Reproductive Rights: Prevent Enforcement of Outdated Comstock Act

6 so far! Help us get to 10 signers!

The Comstock Act, a 19th-century law, is being weaponized to potentially ban abortion nationwide without congressional action. This law, currently largely unenforceable, is being pushed for enforcement by conservative organizations, including one led by a former Trump aide. If successful, this strategy would outlaw medication abortion and potentially extend to medical equipment used in surgical abortions, effectively shutting down all abortion providers. This proposal is part of a blueprint published by "Project 2025," a transition-planning initiative supported by over 50 right-wing organizations. It is crucial to address the potential impact of the Comstock Act on abortion access. Therefore, it is requested to take immediate action to prevent the enforcement of this outdated law and protect the reproductive rights of all individuals.
