Projects This month was all about highlighting policies that protect the most vulnerable. Since the Democratic Party has disavowed the popular Hyde Amendment, Secular Pro-Life is reminding folks just how many children the amendment has saved: about 2.4 million people are alive today thanks to Hyde. Kelsey organized a virtual rally ("Out of Hyding") emceed by Terrisa which gave attendees a picture of how important it is for us to protect Hyde.
This month Terrisa and Monica also spent time working with Colorado pro-life groups to promote Prop 115, which would ban elective late-term abortions in the state (donate here to help). Terrisa flew to Colorado this last week to lead a rally at the state capitol in support of this basic common ground legislation.

Why We Need a Pro-Life Woman on the Supreme Court: Kelsey outlines the need for pro-life women across the country to be adequately represented on the court and how Coney Barrett's potential elevation to the Supreme Court puts into question the pro-choice trope that women need abortion to have successful, high-pressure careers.
