How Vulnerable Senate Republicans Are Responding (Or Not) to Questions About Their Party’s Uncompromising Anti-Choice Laws

Here’s a look at how vulnerable Republican senators are responding (or not) to uncompromising state laws supported by their party that ban abortion – even in cases of rape and incest – and are designed to use the Republican-stacked federal judiciary to overturn Roe v. Wade:

Strategy #1: Duck & Dodge

Strategy #2: Stay Silent

  • Cory Gardner has still said nothing
  • Joni Ernst has said still nothing
  • David Perdue has still said nothing
  • John Cornyn has still said nothing

Strategy #3: Pretend You Had Nothing to Do with It

  • Susan Collins has claimed to be pro-choice as a part of her once-moderate persona but has repeatedly voted to stack the courts with anti-choice judges like Brett Kavanaugh. Collins’ votes paved the path and momentum for passage of these rigid ideological state laws that attack women’s reproductive rights and seek to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Lauren Passalacqua released the following statement:

“Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans put these efforts in motion by jamming rigid, uncompromising ideologues through the Senate and onto the courts, which is why Republican lawmakers see the opening to overturn well-established precedent, roll back women’s rights and put women — even those who have been victims of heinous crimes — at risk.”
