Early Warning System For Republican Attacks On Abortion Rights

Republican attacks on women's rights are spreading. How do you track them quickly?

Use an early warning system to track incoming attacks quickly and see where the attacks are taking place. Quickly!

The "Not On Our Watch" map shows attacks on women's rights and the Republican Governor, State Attorney General and Senators for that area. Reports on attacks are entered by volunteers and displayed on a map. The map includes INCIDENTS REPORTED IN THE LAST 24 HOURS feature to see the latest incident.

This map (as of May 16, 2024) includes an an incident "A South Dakota anti-abortion group has been calling voters who signed a petition to put abortion on the ballot, pretending to be government officials and pressuring them to withdraw their signatures."

Attacks on democracy

Adrienne Bosma told the South Dakota Searchlight that she got a call from someone who gave the impression of being associated with the Secretary of State’s Office: “The volunteer asked questions, including whether Bosma knew the petition ‘allows for abortion up to birth.’ Bosma said she challenged the volunteer’s language before the volunteer hung up the phone. ‘I was so mad, I was physically shaking,’ Bosma said. ‘If you’re calling people and harassing them when they’re exercising their First Amendment right, that’s over the line. That’s not OK.’”

Who are actually making the calls? A political action committee, South Dakota Petition Integrity, which was formed by Republican state Rep. Jon Hansen—who also happens to be the vice president of South Dakota Right to Life. This comes after Republicans, led by Hansen, were able to pass a law that would invalidate the proposed amendment if anti-abortion groups are able to convince (or intimidate) even a handful of people to withdraw their signatures from the petition. Hansen says that he’s been “encouraging” voters to take their name off, “but it’s not coercive.” - Jessica Valenti

Not on our watch is a people powered system to report incidents

NOT ON OUR WATCH enable people closest to the situation share what they know - either from a personal experience, or something they've read and believe deserves more attention. The app is free and easy to use. Pick a category (abortion ban, voter suppression...) and add details. It appears immediately on a map which can be shared with a link or embedded in a website. Use the app in either English or Spanish from a phone or laptop, without installing any software.

TakeAway: Track attacks on women's rights and hold the Republicans behind the attacks accountable.
