In 2016, Renee Bracey Sherman called on moderators for presidential debates to #AskAboutAbortion.
Renee was right then, and she’s right in 2019 as she and a growing movement of feminists are demanding to have candidates for federal, state, and local office be openly and directly asked about their stance on funding for reproductive health care; ending the Hyde amendment; eliminating racist, sexist, homophobic, & anti-trans systems that cause economic, psychological, and physical harm to many of us and our friends and neighbors; oh, and did we mention… abortion.
As the nation turns its eyes to Westerville, Ohio, on Tuesday for the next Democratic Debate, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is one of many pro-choice organizations whose supporters are contacting CNN and The New York Times debate moderators to ask them to #AskAboutAbortion.
