STATEMENT ON SENATE REPUBLICANS’ PUSH FOR A NATIONWIDE ABORTION BAN FROM BBT EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DANIELLE MELFI
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Building Back Together Executive Director Danielle Melfi released the following statement on Republican senators’ proposal, being announced today, to impose a nationwide ban on abortion:
“Republicans in Congress have shown yet again that they will impose a nationwide abortion ban if given the opportunity. This bill underscores just how out of touch they are with the vast majority of the American people, who overwhelmingly oppose proposals to take away our rights and freedoms. While today President Biden will highlight the Inflation Reduction Act and his work to lower costs for working families, Republicans in Congress are continuing their fight to take personal freedoms away from millions of Americans.
“The decision to get an abortion is a deeply personal one that should only ever be between a woman and her doctor — not politicians. It’s essential that we have more allies in Congress who will stand up for the right of all people to make decisions about their own health for themselves.”
