Hillary Clinton's Op-Ed on the Supreme Court

Hillary penned this Op-Ed on the Supreme Court and the significance of this election following her major speech on SCOTUS  in Wisconsin this week.

The fate of the Supreme Court is at stake in 2016

The Supreme Court shapes virtually every aspect of life in the United States, from whether you can marry the person you love to whether you can get health care. And for a long time now, its ideological bent has led our country in the wrong direction.

If we’re serious about fighting for progressive causes, we need to focus on the Court: who sits on it, how we choose them and how much we let politics dominate that process.

At its best, the Court is a place where the least powerful voices in our society are heard and protected, whether they’re African Americans trying to vote or get an education in the era of segregated schools and poll taxes … or women trying to make our own health decisions in the face of laws that would strip that right away.
