Thanks to Trump, women in Arizona will still be living under an extreme abortion ban

In response to the recently passed repeal of Donald Trump's extreme 1864 abortion ban, DNC spokesman Cameron Niven released the following statement:

“Because of Donald Trump, women in Arizona will continue to live under an extreme ban on abortion – be it the 1864 abortion ban that will remain in effect for months to come, causing chaos for women and doctors alike, or Arizona’s current extreme abortion ban with no exceptions.” Rape or incest. Thanks to Trump, who is poised to push his extreme abortion ban agenda nationwide with or without help from Congress, women in Arizona have no respite from suffering under these draconian bans. Voters know that the only way to protect the fundamental freedoms of Arizonans and Americans across the country is to reject Trump again in November and re-elect President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.”

Trump and MAGA Republicans support Arizona's cruel, extreme abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest.

Axios: “Republicans Have Insane Breakdown Over Abortion”

“A day after former President Trump thought he had contained the Republican Party's abortion revelations, it resurfaced in the key 2024 battleground of Arizona.

“Why it matters: Trump ushered in the end of Roe vs. Wade and his national protection of abortion rights, and now his party is suffering a massive voter backlash.”

Associated Press: “'Make no mistake, Arizonans are now living in 1864 because of Donald Trump's Roe v. Wade dismantled“Democratic Sen. Priya Sundareshan of Tucson said in a pre-vote news conference organized by the Biden campaign and the Arizona Democratic Party.”

USA Today: “The year 2022 Dobbs vs. Jackson Women's Health Organization that overturned Roe v. calf is quoted 22 times in the Arizona Supreme Court's 4-2 rulingwhich confirmed a law that predated Arizona statehood Anyone who supports abortion faces a prison sentence of two to five yearsunless the procedure is necessary to save the mother’s life.”

Appeal:In the 4-2 win on Tuesday, tThe Arizona Supreme Court said the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization made the 1864 law enforceable.

“The 160-year-old lawwhich existed before Arizona's existence as a US state and women's right to vote in the United States, makes abortion a felony punishable by two to five years in prison for anyone who performs an abortion or helps a woman have the procedure.”

Arizona Republic: “On Thursday, the Democratic National Committee will launch a billboard campaign in the Phoenix and Tempe areas claiming Trump is responsible for Tuesday's decision.

“'Thanks to Donald Trump, abortion is banned in Arizona. He won't stop until it's banned nationwide,“Five billboards will have readings, some in English and others in Spanish.”

Last interview: Trump supported prosecuting and punishing women who have abortions.

Interviewer: “Are you comfortable if states decide to punish women who have abortions after the procedure is banned?”

[…]

Trump: “Again, I don’t have to feel comfortable or uncomfortable. States will make that decision. The states have to be comfortable or inconvenient, not me.”

[…]

Interviewer: “Prosecution of women for abortions after the ban. But are you comfortable with it?”

Trump: “The states will say so. It doesn't matter whether I feel good or not. It is completely irrelevant because states will make these decisions.

In case you forgot: Trump called for women to be punished years ago.

Trump card: “There has to be some form of punishment [for women who have an abortion].”

Trump also refused to rule out signing a national abortion ban.

Interviewer: “So just to be clear, you're not going to commit to vetoing the bill if there are federal restrictions – federal restrictions on abortion?”

Trump card: “I don’t have to commit to it.”

[…]

Interviewer: “Would you veto it? [the Life at Conception Act]?”

Trump card: “I don't have to do anything about vetoesbecause now we have it back in the states.”

In case you forgot, Trump said he would sign a nationwide abortion ban if elected to a second term and supported one as president.

Associated Press: “Trump says he will support national abortion ban at 15 weeks of pregnancy”

Rolling Stone: “Trump wants to ban abortion nationwide: report”

New York Times: “Trump Privately Expresses Support for 16-Week Abortion Ban”

Trump on whether he would sign a six-week national abortion ban: “I’m looking at all the options.”

Trump: “We're going to pick something that's very, very good for the pro-lifers… I'm going to push there.”

The hill: “The Trump administration on Monday formally supported a House bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. … It would be a criminal offense to perform or attempt to have an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, with the possibility of a fine, imprisonment of up to five years, or both.”

Trump went crazy Roe v. Wade and is the reason one in three women across the country live under extreme abortion bans.

Wademuch to everyone’s “shock”… Without me there would be no 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 15 weeks or whatever is ultimately agreed upon. Without me, the pro-life movement would have lost time and time again. Thank you President TRUMP!!!”

Trump card: “I'm the one who got rid of it Roe v. Wade, and everyone said it was impossible. I appointed three Supreme Court justices. Very few people have had that privilege or honor.”
