PA-17: Jeremy Shaffer Shares Blame for the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

In the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, it’s important voters know just how extreme PA-17 GOP candidate Jeremy Shaffer is. He has made his crusade against women’s freedoms clear multiple times in the past year alone.

Make no mistake: Shaffer and the Republican Party are on the wrong side of this issue. Polling conducted after the leak of the SCOTUS draft opinion overturning Roe shows: by a two-to-one margin, people oppose Roe being overturned; 80% of people believe abortion should be decided between a woman and her doctor; and nearly two-thirds of people oppose the GOP’s plan to institute a nationwide abortion ban.

Shaffer will be held accountable for his party’s role in recent decision and his party’s plan to institute a nationwide abortion ban.

  • What does Jeremy Shaffer say to the women living in fear, now that Republicans have ripped away 50 years of constitutionally guaranteed freedom and protections?

  • Does Jeremy Shaffer support a proposed nationwide ban?

  • Does Jeremy Shaffer support an exception in case of harm to the woman?

DCCC spokesperson Helen Kalla:
“Shaffer and his party bear responsibility for the devastating decision overturning Roe. Shaffer must explain his record of attacking women’s personal freedoms and answer whether he supports his party leaders’ plan to impose a draconian nationwide abortion ban.”
