“You know me; you’re someone like me,” says Graphic in the 30-second spot, which features the hashtag. “I had an abortion. It was my decision. Today, it is my right. But states are trying to that immediately by taking of Roe v. Wade, and Trump makes it possible. He is appointing anti-choice judges to the federal courts and the high council. The ACLU is fighting to stop abortion prohibitions and restrictions in Alabama and 13 other states. Come and join us. Speak. It is not a time to sit on the sidelines.”

The ACLU is grateful for Working with her voice to even more attention to this crucial moment in the ongoing battle for our right to abortion.
