Republican Senator, Iowa
Sen. Joni Ernst has said time and again that she represents the issues that Iowans care about. But through the ultra-conservative judges Ernst has voted to confirm, she has shown that far from protecting Iowan’s rights, she is using the courts to shred the rights and protections that Iowans care about.
Her goal? To accomplish through our courts what she and her Republican colleagues in the Senate have failed to do legislatively: strip away our constitutional rights that guarantee Iowan’s access to health care and to clean air and water; to cast a ballot that counts; to receive benefits from our social programs and protections; to control our own bodies and more.
Trump’s dangerous judges make the rulings, but Joni Ernst is just as responsible as they are.
Senators who vote to confirm judges that are a threat to our health care are just as responsible as the judges when harmful decisions are made.
When you register, you’ll receive access to a recorded activist training and a downloadable action toolkit with a dozen ways to take action from home. The training has three parts: 1) a PFAW ad that addresses your senator’s bad votes to confirm harmful judges, 2) an interview with PFAW experts about the relationship between our courts and our care, and 3) an explainer on the tools in the virtual toolkit.
