DNC Statement on Donald Trump Celebrating the End of Roe

Today, after the conservative Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, defeated former President Donald Trump celebrated the devastating decision. DNC spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement:

“After jamming through three conservative Supreme Court justices, Donald Trump is unsurprisingly celebrating the downfall of the constitutional right to an abortion. Donald Trump has dedicated his career to undermining the fundamental rights of the people of this country and already made clear that he wants to go even further by criminalizing abortion. With Donald Trump at the helm, MAGA Republicans are championing extreme anti-choice policies and demonstrating how much is at stake in November.”

Let’s not forget Donald Trump called for punishments for women who sought abortions:  

Chris Matthews: “Do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no as a principle?” 

TRUMP: “The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment.” 

Matthews: “For the woman?” 

TRUMP: “Yes, there has to be some form.”
