If you need more convincing of what’s at stake in this election, head over to RH Reality Check and read The Future of Sexual and Reproductive Health.

PS-You may have heard that a number of companies are offering free treats or beverages to voters on Election Day. I just learned this morning that this includes Babeland stores in New York and Seattle, who are giving out free sex toys to voters!
