REMINDER: Brandon Williams Pioneered Same Legislation As the Anti-Abortion Groups Currently in Front of Supreme Court

SCOTUS Oral Arguments in Case Challenging Mifepristone Access Spotlight Republicans’ Anti-Abortion Agenda

As the U.S. Supreme Court hears oral arguments that could “pave the way toward a national abortion ban” by severely restricting access to the medication mifepristone, MAGA extremist Brandon Williams and House Republicans have been simultaneously mounting a multiple front attack on reproductive freedoms in America.

Williams voted for fervently anti-abortion legislation that would prevent women from receiving mifepristone through the mail or at pharmacies – the exact same issue before the Supreme Court now.

Williams’ crusade against access to safe medication is only one of many far-right, extreme measures he and the House GOP have been pushing to achieve their eventual goal of a nationwide abortion ban.

In the 118th Congress alone, Williams and House Republicans have used their majority to try to roll back reproductive freedom every chance they get, passing anti-abortion legislation that would punish doctors who perform abortionsuse federal funds to spread misinformation, and prevent vulnerable communities from seeking essential health care. 

Williams also co-sponsored H.R. 7 – an extreme anti-abortion bill that would rip private health insurance coverage away from women and overturn state law in New York guaranteeing access to reproductive health care in private health insurance plans. 

Polling shows that more than 60% of Americans favor protecting access to mifepristone as a prescription drug, while over half of Americans support a woman’s right to obtain an abortion.

DCCC Spokesperson Ellie Dougherty:
“Let’s be clear: Brandon Williams, House Republicans, and the anti-abortion groups in front of the Supreme Court are working from the exact same playbook to criminalize abortion and restrict women’s reproductive freedoms. Central New Yorkers and the Mohawk Valley will hold Williams accountable for his dangerous positions and vote him out this November.”
