The Dobbs Decision Is a "Curtailment of Women’s Rights, and of Their Status as Free and Equal Citizens"*

Women have long been treated as “less than”, but even with a despicable history of misogyny, the overturning of Roe V. Wade is simply horrifying in its flat-out denial of basic civil rights. Although even cadavers cannot be forced to donate organs no matter whose life those organs might save, women (even young girls) are no longer in control of their own bodies and can be forced to bear a child. From now on … from the moment of fertilization and no matter the consequences, a woman ceases to matter except as a womb.

Even worse, people may be fined, jailed, and criminalized (some lawmakers promote death) for making, or helping to make, healthcare decisions that others have decided are illegal. Individual rights to privacy will be a thing of the past. Women and marginalized genders will become fodder for a justice system that will penalize them for their healthcare decisions, perhaps turning them into felons … and thus taking away their right to vote. 

 

After this latest decision, the Supreme Court will examine other rights:  same-sex marriage; inter-racial marriage; birth control. Who knows what rights will be next on the chopping block from Republican radicals who, after all, lied to be confirmed to the Supreme Court and were installed by a man who instigated an insurrection rather than admit he lost a fair election.

 

We will not accept this. We choose to fight for democracy instead! 

 

The McKinney Area Democrats will continue working with local leaders to elect DEMOCRATS who believe all people, no matter their gender, are fully capable human beings who can make important healthcare decisions without politicians or radicalized zealots interfering. We will educate voters about the clear and present danger of voting for today’s radicalized Republican Party at any level for any office. We will protect our democracy by registering voters at marches and candidate rallies so we can vote out extremists and protect the civil rights of all of us. 

 

We can all do something to fight for our way of life. You can:

  • Run for office (we can help train and prepare you ... just email us here

  • Knock on 10 doors in your neighborhood (we have the information to help you do that ... email us here

  • Text voters (email us for more information)

  • Become a VDR to help register voters (you can find more information here)

  • Donate  to Collin County House District candidates who will protect our civil rights (links below)

  • Have uncomfortable conversations with your friends and family members about why this is vital to YOU

  • VOTE. And bring as many friends to the polls with you as you can (you can check if you're registered here)

 

None of us can do this alone. BUT WE ARE NOT ALONE. There are more of us than them!

 

November 2022 is a watershed election. It will, quite literally, decide the future of our county, our state, and our country. Whoever is in charge after this November election decides who is free … and who is not. Time to get to work.

Statement on October 24th Fires in McKinney

The McKinney Area Democratic Club stands with the communities affected by Monday morning’s fires at the New Outreach Church of God in Christ, a neighborhood residence, and a nearby Chicken Express. Although thankfully no one was injured, these structures were vital parts of our McKinney East Side, most particularly the church, a well-known and beloved presence there for decades. 

 

Our organization had the pleasure of joining New Outreach COGIC at their 31st Anniversary event in April, part of the City of McKinney’s celebration of Black History Month. We’re so sad to know that such an important part of the community has been devastated by fire. While the origins of the fires are still under investigation, we hope that, if the fires were set intentionally, it can be determined if the blazes represent hate crimes and that the perpetrators can be caught quickly.

 

The Church has yet to identify a new meeting place for worship but has offered the following ways to contribute financially:  Cash App $1991Outreach; Zelle 214-836-6876. You may mail a check to 915 Rockwall Street, McKinney, TX 75069.
