Idaho GOP Pushes Abortion Ban With No Exceptions for Mother’s Life
July 19, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment comes from the Idaho Republican Party.
At the GOP state party convention last weekend, Idaho Republicans rejected an amendment to the party platform that would protect abortion access in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.
Idaho Capital Sun: “No exception for life of mother included in Idaho GOP’s abortion platform language”
The Idaho GOP platform went even further in pushing these dangerous views, arguing for the criminalization of all abortions:
Idaho Capital Sun: “While language already existed in the platform classifying abortion as murder from the moment of fertilization, [State Senate candidate Scott] Herndon’s language added that the party supports the criminalization of all abortions within the state’s jurisdiction.”
In case there was any confusion: Republicans are not stopping at overturning Roe v. Wade. They are launching a full-scale assault on women’s rights and the ability for Americans to make their own health care decisions — even in some life-or-death situations.
