EMILYs List Statement on Trump’s Latest Lies on Abortion

April 10, 2024


WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to Donald Trump’s latest attempt to lie to voters about his position on abortion, EMILYs List President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:

“Donald Trump’s record on abortion is clear: just this week, he bragged about being ‘the person responsible’ for overturning Roe v. Wade, the action that led to Arizona having to live under a Civil War-era near-total abortion ban.

“Donald Trump’s agenda is clear: He and his extremist allies are plotting ways to end our reproductive freedom as soon as they take office.

“Trump’s lies are equally clear: He will say anything to get elected.

“The news from Florida and Arizona prove one thing: We cannot trust Donald Trump with our reproductive rights. He is responsible for what patients face in those states, and he will go further in the White House. EMILYs List is proud to stand with the Biden-Harris administration, the only ticket who will support our rights.”

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.
