DNC Statement on Florida Abortion Ban

In response to Florida Republicans sending another, more extreme abortion ban to Ron DeSantis’s desk, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“In his relentless pursuit of the MAGA base, Ron DeSantis is on the cusp of further ripping away a woman’s freedom to make her own health care decisions. DeSantis has pledged to sign this extreme ban that applies before many women know they’re pregnant on the heels of signing an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest last year. This ban will be one of the strictest in the country and is the latest salvo of abortion extremism as 2024 Republican hopefuls work to out-MAGA each other – and remind America that Republican control would bring us closer to a nationwide abortion ban.”
