Statement “On Friday, America’s moms were horrified when the conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal ban on bump stocks, using a technical argument to allow onto our streets a device that turns a semiautomatic rifle into a weapon that can discharge 400 – 800 bullets per minute. Once again, the U.S. Supreme Court showed they prioritize guns over our constitutional rights to life, liberty from violence, and the pursuit of happiness absent from fear.

Statement “It is shameful, and it is harmful that U.S. Senate Republicans today refused to take the simple, necessary step of passing a wildly popular bill to protect access to in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in the United States. Together with Republicans’ refusal to enshrine our right to contraception into federal law and to codify Roe v. Wade, this amounts to a total refusal to protect our access to reproductive health care. It is truly indefensible.

Statement “Today the U.S. Supreme Court rightly and decisively rejected the outrageous attempt by anti-abortion extremists to take away our access to mifepristone, a safe and effective medication that has been used safely in the United States for more than 20 years. While this decision is great news for women, mothers and people who need alternative ways to access abortion, the fact remains that the case should never have made it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Statement “The wage gap is a well-documented, devastating drain on working people, families, businesses and our economy. We have long called attention to the harm it causes moms and women, and especially moms and women of color. But unfair pay also causes grave and lasting harm to the LGBTQIA+ community and today, on LGBTQIA+ Equal Pay Awareness Day, moms join the urgent call to end discrimination and ensure fair pay for all, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

Statement “It’s appalling. Shameful. Inexcusable. Grossly out of touch. Today Republicans in the U.S. Senate refused to take the simple step of enshrining our right to contraception into federal law when they voted down the Right to Contraception Act.

News release Watch Replay WASHINGTON, DC -- Last week, Representatives Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) and Jesús "Chuy" García (IL-04) led a press conference at the U.S. Capitol to urge temporary protected status (TPS) for Ecuadorian immigrants currently residing in the United States.

Statement “At this time when skyrocketing food prices have increased hunger and food insecurity, forcing tens of millions of U.S. families to make impossible choices between food and other essentials, it would be mean-spirited and shameful for Congress to cut the SNAP benefits moms and families rely on; and it also would be damaging to our economy. Yet this is exactly what the Farm, Food, and National Security Act of 2024, introduced by U.S. House Republican leadership today, would do. Its impact would be devastating.

Statement “America’s moms are celebrating passage of the Maternal and Child Health Stillbirth Prevention Act in the U.S. House of Representatives last night. Since the U.S. Senate passed this legislation with unanimous consent last September, the House vote is a significant milestone that puts the country on track for meaningful action to improve maternal and infant health. It’s about time.
