Biden, Pelosi among Democrats sending out donation emails after Roe ruling

Critics have reacted with anger and derision after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and prominent national Democrats sent out donation emails following the US Supreme Court’s decision in a landmark abortion case.

The DNC sent emails to those on its mailing list asking for donations after the court’s decision was released Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and in one instance, a request for funds was directly attributed to President Joe Biden.

The court overturned the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v. calf which, along with 1992, established a constitutional right to abortion Planned Parenthood vs Casey, what affirmed Roe.

The DNC appealed for donations of $7 in emails attributed to Team DNC and DNC Headquarters, respectively, and made the same request in an email purportedly from President Biden “to help voting up and down the Democrats this November.”

Other Democrats who might be considered household names also sent donation emails. They included Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke.

Writer and performer Matt Gehring took to Twitter on Friday and shared screenshots of an email from the DNC. He wrote: “And with that, I am unsubscribing from @DNC. If they had decency, they would direct people to donate to abortion funds.”

Comedy Centrals The daily News appeared to mock the fundraising efforts in a tweet from his official account on Friday. Post: “EVERYONE: [apoplectically angry]’ and added: ‘DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS: We hear you. Please donate $3 so we can take on the Supreme Court in 12 weeks with a pro-choice karaoke night.”

Nina Turner, a progressive Democrat and former Ohio state senator, warned on Twitter Friday that Democrats will “send out all donation emails asking for money to fight back once the decision is made whether.” today or some other time”.

“No legislation, just emails,” she wrote before the court released its opinion Dobbs.

“I received six donation emails from Democratic candidates today. It’s cheesy and shows a real rift between many politicians and their constituents that is only widening,” tweeted author Roxane Gay.

Spokesperson Pelosi appears to have sent out a flurry of donation emails through various mailing lists, in which she is quoted as saying, “Trump’s Supreme Court just ruled to strip every single woman in this country of their reproductive rights.”

The Progressive Gravel Institute shared a screenshot of one of those emails on Twitter, showing a request for a $15 donation. Subscribers to Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s mailing list also received an email attributed to Pelosi asking for a donation that was split between the two Democrats’ campaigns.

Klobuchar also sent a separate email to her mailing list, asking for a split donation between her own campaign and Emily’s List, an organization that advocates for women to vote for abortion rights.

Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke emailed a request for a $3 donation.

“The only way to overcome today’s Supreme Court decision is to win this race for governor,” his email read.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren also sent an appeal for funds, but did not ask for donations for her campaign. Rather, Warren asked for donations to the Michigan group Reproductive Freedom for All and Kansans for Constitutional Freedom, both of which campaign for abortion rights.
