DSCC Statement On Senate Republicans Introducing National Abortion Ban

Today in response to reports that Senate Republicans plan to introduce a national abortion ban, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Nora Keefe issued the following statement:

“Senate Republicans are showing voters exactly what they would do if they are in charge: pass a nationwide abortion ban and strip away women’s right to make our own health care decisions. For Americans of every political persuasion who value the freedom to make their own decisions about their family’s health care, the stakes of protecting and expanding our Democratic Senate Majority in November have never been higher.”

Previously, McConnell said Republicans could introduce a national abortion ban if they control the Senate following this election.
