One Year Post-Roe: 2024 Republicans Are Celebrating at Right-Wing Cattle Call
June 23, 2023
As 2024 Republicans flock to their latest MAGA cattle call at the Faith and Freedom “Road to Majority” policy conference around the one year anniversary of Roe v. Wade being overturned, here’s your reminder that the field is full of anti-abortion extremists who won’t stop until they completely rip away women’s freedom to make their own health care decisions nationwide.
Nearly a year since Roe v. Wade was overturned, an overwhelming majority of Americans have made clear that they reject MAGA Republicans’ push for an extreme national abortion ban.
CBS News: “CBS News poll finds most say Roe’s overturn has been bad for country, half say abortion has been more restricted than expected”
“Women — six in 10 of whom disapprove of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe — feel that decision has not only been an infringement on women’s rights, but also a threat to women’s health: More than half of women think being pregnant in the U.S. today is becoming more dangerous from a health care perspective.”
USA Today: “Americans overwhelmingly oppose the next goal of many anti-abortion activists, to enact a federal law banning abortion nationwide. By 80%-14%, those surveyed opposed that idea, including 65% of Republicans and 83% of independents. By 53%-39%, they supported a federal law ensuring access to abortion.”
But take it from them: 2024 Republicans are intent on forcing a national ban on Americans and stripping away freedom across this country.
The Messenger: Would you sign a six week abortion ban or not?
Trump: “I’m looking at all [options].”
DeSantis: “Dobbs returned the issue to the elected representatives of the people. And so I think that there’s, there’s role for both the federal and the states.”
Wolf Blitzer: “Would you support a six-week ban nationwide?”
Pence: “Well, of course. Look — I’m pro-life. I don’t apologize for it. I believe that we’ve got to do everything in our power to restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law. And I’d support federal legislation in that regard if I was in the Congress or had any other job here in town.”
Newsmax: “Your colleague in the Senate – also your colleague from South Carolina – Lindsey Graham is pushing for a 15-week federal abortion ban, something that’s going to be an issue come the next election. Would a President Scott sign that bill into law?”
Scott: “Every day, I would sign that bill into law. I would sign the most conservative pro-life legislation you can bring to my desk.”
Meg Kinnard, Associated Press: “Yes of course I would sign’ federal ban, Haley says.”
USA Today: “Presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he would sign into law a 15-week national abortion ban if he were president, a departure from his previous stance when he said the issue should be left up to individual states.”
Wall Street Journal: “[Suarez] said he would support a national ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions for rape, incest and the life of mother.”
