The Youth Vote Did It Before in 1973 & Can Do It Again This year
The Youth vote did it before in 1973, and this new generation can do it again!
Dear MoveOn member,
Take a moment to remember how you felt the moment news broke that six unelected extremist justices on the Supreme Court had ripped away our rights to access abortion and control our bodily autonomy.
They celebrated. They thought they had won.
In 57 days, we have our chance to show them that they’re wrong.
We must turn the midterm Congressional Elections into a referendum on abortion and the dangerous, deadly authoritarianism of the Republican’t Party. That’s why MoveOn has just printed a big batch of these “Vote like it’s 1973” stickers and is giving them away for free while supplies last.
The Republican’t theocrats didn’t consider what would happen when Republicans started ripping away our constitutional rights and freedoms.
First, voters in deep-red Kansas turned out in numbers not seen since the 2008 presidential election to defeat the GOP’s attempt to remove abortion rights from the state’s constitution by 18 points last month.
Then, Alaska elected Democrat Mary Peltola to fill the state’s open Congressional seat, making her the first Democrat to represent Alaska in the House in 49 years.
The New York Times is calling these results “a fierce abortion backlash.”1
Now, with less than two months to go before Election Day, we need to keep up the grassroots momentum. Remember how the hippies protested until they ended the war in Vietnam? If you don’t you should ask somebody. You’ll learn that the youth vote can make serious change. Today’s youth vote can do it again! If the new voters band together around the Democrats in the “red States” they have the strength in numbers to vote out all the jerks your parents voted into office. Any State in the union can be flipped this way.
This takes money to get this message out, as well as participation.
And that’s where you come in.
Will you order your FREE “Vote Like It’s 1973” sticker today, while supplies last? You can display it proudly—on your car, laptop, water bottle, or anywhere else—to show your support for abortion rights and to remind voters to elect Democrats who will fight to restore our right to bodily autonomy this November.
Thanks for all you do.
–Kelly, Bekir, Nita, Ankur, and the rest of the team.
