Statement “The reports that officers working for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s border security initiative ordered Texas state troopers to push asylum-seekers, including nursing infants and their moms, pregnant women, and young children, into the Rio Grande and to deny them water in the withering, life-threatening heat are absolutely horrifying. The reports include a young woman having a miscarriage while trapped in Gov.

Statement “The rage, the sadness, the terror moms feel when, time after time after time, we learn about lives lost to police violence is immeasurable. It is clear that investigations, lawsuits, and charges after these avoidable tragedies, most of which harm people who are Black or Brown or living with disabilities, are not enough. We need to truly transform our approach to public safety by adopting inclusive, holistic and health-centered measures that will keep our communities safe. We need the People’s Response Act, which is being re-introduced in Congress today, to do just that.

Statement “This week, the U.S. Supreme Court built on its disgraceful, regrettable record of denying rights and remedies to people who face discrimination and hardship with appalling decisions that limit the rights of LGBTQ+ customers and people of color pursuing higher education – and with its ruling striking down President Biden’s modest student debt relief program. The Biden program would have helped more than 40 million Americans struggling with crushing levels of student debt.

Statement “In the year since the U.S. Supreme Court took away our bodily autonomy, our access to abortion care, and our ability to make our own decisions about whether to have children and if so, when and how many children to have, life has become much more dangerous and difficult for America’s moms. Most people in this country who have abortions are moms and when states ban abortion and take away our access to reproductive health care, moms and their families suffer.

Statement “We were wrong if we thought we understood the depths to which Moms for Liberty would sink. The news that the Hamilton County, Indiana Moms for Liberty chapter prominently quotes Adolph Hitler in its newsletter is both shocking and…somehow unsurprising.

Statement “Paying for the prescription medications our families need has long been a struggle for America’s moms. At MomsRising, we hear every week from moms who are forced to make impossible choices between rent and food, on the one hand, and the medications that will keep their children or other family members healthy or even alive, on the other.

Statement “DACA has made our country stronger. DACA recipients are valued members of our communities and our workforce, and major contributors to our health care system and our economy. They deserve the chance to live, learn, and work in the only country most have ever called home, without fear of having their lives up-ended through deportation.

Statement “The fight over raising the debt ceiling, with its grave threats to moms and families, as well as to the economy, should not be happening. Just as Congress passed clean debt ceiling increases not once, not twice, but three times when President Trump held office, Congress should be passing a clean debt ceiling increase now. The days when the GOP has one set of priorities during a Republican administration and then switches to another during a Democratic administration must end. The GOP threats to vulnerable moms and families must end.
