Abortion Is Health Care
Access to safe, legal abortion is access to vital health care—and we need those in power to take action now to ensure accessible, high-quality health care to everyone in America.Sign this Petition
Great news! In March, our friends at MomsRising.org started a MoveOn petition calling on President Obama to stand firm in his nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy for U.S. Surgeon General, and for Congress to move forward with the confirmation.
Conservative powerhouses like the NRA actively worked to derail Dr. Murthy’s nomination and confirmation. Why? Because, like many other doctors, he has in the past referred to gun violence as a threat to public health. But MomsRisings, MoveOn members, and concerned Americans fought–and WON!
MomsRising’s Gloria Pan said, this great news is all because of you. You signed petitions. You made phone calls. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you.
WE DID IT! Dr. Murthy is now the U.S. Surgeon General #TopDocNow #p2 pic.twitter.com/6y4vWS8ijG
