The Biden-Harris win is a victory for the reproductive health and rights of millions of vulnerable people worldwide. In January, four years of President Donald Trump’s constant attacks — including attempts to cut funding, a radically expanded Global Gag Rule and a denial of U.S. support to the United Nations Population Fund — will come to an end.
Nevada voters should also be proud of reelecting a reproductive rights champion to Congress. Rep. Susie Lee has signed on as a co-sponsor to the Global HER Act and is committed to protecting reproductive rights.
Organizers and volunteers from Nevada’s #Fight4HER campaign worked to help put Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House, and we’re not done yet. When the new Congress is seated, we’ll be there, pushing elected officials to end restrictions on U.S. aid for comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care programs abroad.
This is a new era for reproductive freedom worldwide, and I look forward to seeing the change that Biden and Lee have promised.
