The 5 Midterm Races That Matter Most for Abortion Access

Don't be dramatic, they said. When Trump won: Don't be dramatic—Roe isn't going anywhere. When Merrick Garland was blocked but Neil Gorsuch confirmed, when Brett Kavanaugh blustered, when Ruth Bader Ginsburg died: Don't be dramatic—you'll always have access to abortion, especially in a country where 85 percent of citizens think the procedure should be legal in some or all circumstances. When Roe finally did fall: Don't be dramatic—abortion isn't "banned," it's just up to the states to decide!

"In the past three months, abortion has been banned in 17 states, and 1 in 3 women in the United States has already lost access to the right to control their own bodies," says Alexis McGill Johnson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, of the havoc those decisions have already wreaked.

Into this chaos come the midterm elections—our opportunity to step in and say no. If, that is, we don't get lost in the weeds.

That's why Cosmo and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund have launched this project. Here, the five races to focus on.
