MAGA Republicans Are Wildly Out of Touch with the American People On Abortion
May 26, 2022
Because of Republicans’ war on abortion, we are seeing the greatest threat to reproductive health care access in decades. Not only are Republicans standing in staunch opposition to the majority of the American people on the issue, they are taking it further with legislation to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest, and criminalizing abortion.
Yesterday, Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a near-complete abortion ban into law.

Across the country, Republican lawmakers are pushing extreme measures that would result in full-blown bans on abortion with NO EXCEPTIONS for rape or incest, criminalize abortion, and threaten jail time for doctors.
