Sunday marks 50 years since the Supreme Court’s Roe decision guaranteed women had the right to reproductive freedom and abortion health care. However, Americans will not be celebrating this year because just 7 months ago, the Republican appointed Supreme Court overturned Roe and restricted women’s bodily autonomy.
Juan Ciscomani shares the blame for the overturning of Roe, and unfazed by the consequences of Republicans’ war on women, Ciscomani wants to further limit reproductive freedom.
Ran away from a voter to avoid answering questions about his position on abortion.
Cheered the end of Roe v. Wade and supports Arizona’s 15-week abortion ban that has no exceptions for rape or incest.
Was boosted by anti-abortion group National Right to Life Committee’s (NRLC) super PAC in his AZ-06 election.
NRLC is pushing model legislation in states that would ban abortions with no exceptions for rape or incest.
NRLC’s general counsel, Jim Bopp, bragged about their model legislation that would allow states to force young girls to carry a rapist’s child to term, and even said NRLC hopes that child rape victims “would understand the reason and ultimately the benefit of having the child.”
NRLC wants to ban telemedicine for medical abortions, at a time when cancer patients and people with auto-immune diseases are unable to access their life-saving medication because anti-abortion extremists worry it could be used to terminate a pregnancy.
DCCC spokesperson Tommy Garcia:
“As Americans grapple with a less free world that Republicans made by ripping away reproductive freedom, Juan Ciscomani is working to make matters worse. Instead of working to restore the freedom Roe once guaranteed, Ciscomani is actively working with his fellow MAGA House Republicans to ban abortion nationwide.”
