We will not be bullied. We will not be coerced. We will not be blackmailed and threatened. Reproductive health care is basic health care. And it’s one of the most necessary and fundamental rights of a just and equitable democracy.

The Trump administration’s attack on women’s rights is unprecedented. Washington state is fighting back with equally unprecedented resolve. Late yesterday, the administration sent us an untenable ultimatum that forces Washington state out of the Title X program.

What does climate change look like in Washington state? Longer droughts and longer wildfire seasons. Warmer, lower-oxygen waterways that endanger our shellfish, salmon and orca. Unhealthy forests that contribute to severe wildfires.

Instead of aiding those seeking opportunity and working to provide their children a better life, this sends people into the shadows and deeper into poverty. We will continue pursuing every possible option for fighting this rule.

And our collective ability to thrive is horrifically diminished by this latest xenophobic effort to sow confusion and fear throughout our immigrant communities. This action flies in the face of everything our nation stands for.

We're witnessing an unprecedented escalation of animus against our nation’s immigrant families. This rule may score the president points with the most extreme voices in his party, but could be devastating to millions of immigrants, including those with visas or who are U.S.-born.
