DNC – “Let’s be clear: Florida’s extreme abortion ban wouldn’t be possible without Trump paving the way for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade”


In response to the Florida Supreme Court’s ruling, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“Because of Donald Trump, millions of women in Florida and across the South will have their reproductive freedom ripped away by one of the most extreme abortion bans in the country. Trump has already proudly claimed credit for making Florida’s dangerous and unpopular abortion ban possible after he paved the way for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. This is the extreme, anti-freedom agenda Trump wants to force on the entire country, and his MAGA allies are already laying the groundwork for a national abortion ban. But in election after election, the American people have proven that they will not stand for Trump and MAGA Republicans’ assaults on their right to choose. The stakes couldn’t be higher this November, and voters nationwide will choose to stand with President Biden and Vice President Harris once again to safeguard our freedoms.”

Let’s be clear: Florida’s extreme abortion ban wouldn’t be possible without Trump paving the way for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade — and he’s proud to have ripped away rights from women all over the country.

Trump: “First of all, I’m the one that got rid of Roe v. Wade and everybody said that was an impossible thing to do.”

Rolling Stone“Trump Claims Credit for All Abortion Bans”

Trump“I’m the one that got rid of Roe v. Wade, and everybody said that was an impossible thing to do. I put on three Supreme Court justices. Very few people have had that privilege or honor.”

Trump“Getting rid of Roe v. Wade was an incredible thing for pro-life because it gave pro-life something to negotiate with. Pro-life had absolutely nothing, being stuck in Roe v. Wade, to negotiate with. … And look, everybody that was president wanted to get rid and tried to get rid of Roe v. Wade … For fifty years, this has been going on. I was able to do it, and I was very honored to do it.”

Trump“For 54 years they were trying to get Roe v. Wade terminated, and I did it, and I’m proud to have done it. … Nobody else was going to get that done but me, and we did it, and we did something that was a miracle.”

Trump: “After 50 years of failure, with nobody coming even close, I was able to kill Roe v. Wade, much to the ‘shock’ of everyone … Without me there would be no 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 15 weeks, or whatever is finally agreed to. Without me the pro Life movement would have just kept losing. Thank you President TRUMP!!!”
