Yesterday's Supreme Court decision is cause for celebration, but we can't let our guard down.

The moment Trump was elected, far-right politicians in state legislatures around the country began drafting horrifying anti-choice bills. Their plan was to appeal their biased laws all the way to the Supreme Court, where Trump has padded the Supreme Court with anti-choice judges, to weaken or overturn the Roe v. Wade decision, and roll back our reproductive freedoms.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled on the first of these cases and, in a win for progressive values, once again upheld Americans' fundamental reproductive rights.

That's cause for celebration, but unfortunately, we can't let our guard down. Yesterday's 5-4 decision is a reminder that our rights rest on extremely shaky ground – and with the Senate confirming Trump's extremist nominees at a record pace, things get more uncertain every day.

But as anti-choice extremists step up their efforts, I will stand up to stop them. Every time.

I have always fought to expand access to reproductive health care and I've always stood with Planned Parenthood against baseless and deceptive attacks. I'm proud of my 100% rating from NARAL and will continue to be a vocal pro-choice leader in Congress.

It's crucial that we hold the House, flip the Senate, and take back the White House this year and I'll be working overtime to elect a pro-choice Congress. And once we win, I'll be leading the charge to safeguard the right to choose by passing a bold, unambiguous law that protects reproductive rights, and keeps health care decisions between you and your doctor.

Fight on.
