MAGA Hot Mic: North Carolina GOP House Candidate Bo Hines
November 4, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic honors fall on Bo Hines, the GOP nominee running in North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District. Hines proposes that victims of rape and incest go through “a community-level review process outside the jurisdiction of the federal government” to determine whether they are allowed to have an abortion.
You read that right. Bo Hines supports creating a panel of strangers to decide whether victims of rape or incest should be forced to carry their pregnancy to term.
New York Times: “Bo Hines, a former college quarterback who is running for a House seat in North Carolina, backs creating a panel that would decide whether to allow abortions in case of rape or incest. But he’s been vague about how it might work.”
Spectrum News: “Hines said he is against access to an abortion with exceptions for life of the mother and on an ‘individual basis.’”
News & Observer: “Republicans have a new answer to the abortion question, and it’s worse than a total ban… Hines said he wants victims of rape and incest seeking abortion to go through ‘a community-level review process outside the jurisdiction of the federal government.’”
Health care decisions should be decided between a woman and her doctor – not a panel of strangers. With only four days left until the midterm elections, Republicans continue to remind the American people that protecting reproductive freedom is on the ballot next Tuesday.
