Access to safe, legal abortion in America took a devastating blow last night with POLITICO reporting on a leaked draft Supreme Court majority opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade and open the door for 26 states to immediately move to ban the right to abortion. Republican April Becker is complicit in this all-out assault on women’s freedoms.
Becker is proudly anti-choice and was backed by the extremist anti-abortion group Nevada Right to Life, which supports overturning Roe v Wade. She also accepted the endorsement of Adam Laxalt – who spent his entire career as attorney general working to roll back women’s reproductive rights.
Make no mistake – access to abortion is on the line this November and hinges on control of Congress. Just hours before the draft Supreme Court opinion was leaked, the Washington Post reported that congressional Republicans are working on a “push for a strict nationwide ban on the procedure if Republicans retake power in Washington.”
DCCC spokesperson Johanna Warshaw:
“The stakes in this election could not be higher: electing April Becker will put House Republicans one step closer to achieving their decades-long dream of ripping away women’s freedom to make their own decisions about their bodies.”
