Gillibrand Denounces Anti-Choice Bills Put Forward By Senator McConnell

Feb 25, 2020

Washington, DC – Addressing today’s Senate vote on two anti-choice bills, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement:

“The anti-choice policies put forward by Senator McConnell are designed to punish women, interfere in family decisions, and spread dangerous disinformation about abortion. The decisions that women make about their pregnancies and reproductive health should be between themselves, their families, and their doctors—not politicians like McConnell. It’s disgraceful that McConnell has AGAIN wasted time voting on these dangerous, unconstitutional abortion bans, instead of the hundreds of bills sitting on his desk that would actually protect women’s health care and support American families.”
