Recording (a little over an hour) of a Save PPACA rally today with four senators: Sanders, Schumer, Stabenow, and Peters. I was at a rally in Newark (I don't have a URL for footage, although there were at least 12 camera operators working) where both New Jersey senators, Booker and Menendez, turned up. Some points to them for courage, because they got booed a lot by people who are angry at them for voting against allowing re-importation of drugs from Canada.

Six is a pretty good chunk of all the Democrats in the Senate, when you think of it.

On Tuesday, January 17th, join NARAL for an exclusive look at the shape of reproductive freedom under a President Trump. This is a unique opportunity for NARAL members to hear directly from our president, Ilyse Hogue, on the coming resistance to the Trump administration and the anti-choice ideology he has emboldened.

The call will give inside details on what NARAL and the pro-choice movement are planning for 2017 and the fights beyond. The speakers will discuss the specific threats to abortion access and basic health care and go over some of the specific strategies that will be needed to fight back.

With so many challenges ahead, NARAL and its one million member activists are uniting with leaders across the country to defend our most basic freedoms.

I'll be joining the call—will you sign up too? If you do, the NARAL team will call you at 8 p.m. EST on Tuesday to be patched through to the conversation.
