Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the Senate will vote Monday, February 25 on the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” a hyperbolic and unscientific piece of propaganda from anti-choice extremists. In response, National prochoice organizing project #VOTEPROCHOICE’s co-founder Heidi Sieck issued the following statement: “This is hyperbolic anti-choice propaganda masquerading as legislation”
National pro-choice organizing project #VOTEPROCHOICE’s co-founder and Nebraska native Heidi Sieck issued the following statement: “This is hyperbolic anti-choice propaganda masquerading as legislation” as U.S. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) pushes for a vote today on his “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” in the Senate.
The conservative antichoice minority is working overtime to demonize and isolate prochoice champions like Virginia House of Delegates Member Kathy Tran, a #VOTEPROCHOICE-endorsed candidate. Let us be crystal clear: America is a staunchly prochoice nation — 72% of Americans support the right to reproductive freedom.
“Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk is trying to turn America into a forced birth nation. State Senator Silk just introduced legislation to make abortion a felony homicide punishable by life in prison — this is unconscionable and we cannot let this stand” - statement from #VOTEPROCHOICE co-founder Heidi Sieck
“Today’s victory for choice in Ireland makes clear: voters are deeply motivated to cast their ballots for a woman’s right to choose. Here in the U.S, 70 percent of Americans support a woman’s right to choose. Yet many on the Left mistakenly treat abortion like a live wire — vital and necessary in the world we live in, but best not to touch. As we just witnessed in Ireland, when given the opportunity to support choice, voters will cross continents to demand control over their own bodies. “
