MAGA Hot Mic: New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District GOP Candidate Robert Burns
September 20, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment falls on New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District GOP Candidate Robert Burns.
Robert Burns, who has proudly touted himself as “100% pro-life from conception,” not only supports an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest, but once proposed a panel to decide if a woman’s life should be saved.
Washington Post: “Republican Robert Burns, who opposes abortion rights, prevailed in one House primary over a candidate backed by Gov. Chris Sununu (R)… Burns, an ex-county official nominated in the state’s other House seat, emphasized his own antiabortion views and beat a moderate mayor who called himself ‘pro-choice.’”
HuffPost: “But in July 2018, Burns was far more hard-lline on abortion, stating: ‘I’m 100% pro-life from conception.’ In an interview on a public access television program with state Sen. Kevin Avard (R), Burns also said he supported exceptions to an abortion ban when the life of the mother is at risk — and proposed that a panel would get to decide whether a pregnant person had a legitimate reason to get an abortion.”
Women should be making decisions surrounding their reproductive health care – not a panel. With less than 50 days until the midterms, Republicans continue to remind voters their reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November.
