The last few years have been a difficult time for democracy activists. But now, it is time to get more involved. Democracy needs people who are willing to make the effort that it takes to make sure that people’s voices are being heard and that their votes count.
Become More Involved in Politics
It is not just about voting anymore, either. It is about getting involved in the process of democracy so that we can defend it from those who want to dismantle it. In the past, we have seen an increase in money’s influence in politics. That is why now more than ever, it is important for us to get involved and stay engaged with the political process.
If we don’t take action, we will see a decline in our democracy. It’s time that we take back our government and become more invested in politics. It is up to us, the citizens, to be more vocal in the political world. We need to show our support for those working hard for our rights and who are working towards a better government.

The law, enacted on March 19, 2018, prohibited abortions after the fifteenth week of pregnancy except in cases of medical emergencies or fetal abnormalities.
