Reproductive Freedom For All Responds to Republican Debate: When Will Republicans Hear What Voters Are Telling Them?
Washington, DC – Tonight, during the third Republican presidential debate, the candidates doubled down on supporting a national abortion ban while desperately trying to reframe the policy as a “limit.” Their comments come just one day after this same strategy led to a massive sweep for reproductive freedom in critical races all across the country.
Reproductive Freedom for All President and CEO Mini Timmaraju released the following statement in response:
“It’s clear that the GOP sees Tuesday’s defeats not as a rebuke of their policies and extremism but as a mandate to double down on their attempts to lie about their unpopular policies. Calling a ban a limit is like putting lipstick on a pig. A ban is not a ‘limit’—voters know it, and they already rejected this ridiculous attempt to conceal Republicans’ dangerous agenda. Last night, voters sent a resounding message from the American people that Republicans ought to heed: Don’t come after our reproductive freedom.”
For over 50 years, Reproductive Freedom for All (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice America) has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels—including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and post-partum care, and paid family leave—for everybody. Reproductive Freedom for All is powered by its more than 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.
