Rep. Donalds Votes NO on Efforts To Enact National Abortion on Demand

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) issued the following statement opposing the Democrats' radical plans to codify Roe v. Wade and effectively enact nationwide abortion-related policy on demand.    

“Despite unprecedented intimidation, intrusion, and undermining of the U.S. Supreme Court by the Democratic Party and their friends in the pro-abortion lobby, an overwhelming majority of the Court finally overturned 50 years of unsound law and judicial overreach established under Roe. In one of the most pro-democracy rulings in modern history, the Court ruled that the issue of abortion should reside in the hands of the people––instead of nine unelected black robes in D.C. 

“Today's Democratic Party is the party of abortion on demand and without limits, including the unconscionable practice of infanticide. This ideology is sick, perverse, and erodes our nation's moral compass. The Women's Health Protection Act of 2022 is an affront to our system of Checks and Balances and blatantly ignores the Court's ruling which allows states––not Congress––to enact abortion-related policy. This bill will also impose the radical pro-abortion policies of California and New York on states like Florida, Texas, and North Carolina, where extreme abortion extensions aren't supported.

"The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling is clear, regulating abortion is the job of the states, not the federal government. I will vote NO on any effort to expand abortion access in America.”
