EMILYs List Statement on Trump Supporting National Abortion Ban 

March 1, 2024


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday on Fox News Interview, Donald Trump said in his own words that he supports a national abortion ban. EMILYs List Interim President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:

“A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for a national abortion ban.

“This is a reminder that when people tell you who they are, believe them. Trump has credited himself for overturning Roe v. Wade, emboldened extremists to restrict reproductive rights in the states, and said he supports a national abortion ban in a campaign interview. If elected, we don’t have to guess where our rights would stand – he would happily decimate them. 

“The choice in November is simple. Democrats like President Biden and Vice President Harris are on the side of voters and will protect our fundamental freedoms, while extremist Republicans like Trump are trying to strip our rights away.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised $850 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure operations for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
