Stacey Abrams on Abortion

Democratic Gubernatorial Challenger (GA); 2020 Veepstakes contender

 


Roe v. Wade achieved a measure of reproductive justice

With each generation, we have revisited our fundamental truths, and where we falter, we make amends. America achieved a measure of reproductive justice in Roe v. Wade, but we must never forget it is immoral to allow politicians to harm women and families to advance a political agenda. We affirmed marriage equality, and yet, the LGBTQ community remains under attack.

Our progress has always found refuge in the basic instinct of the American experiment--to do right by our people.

Don't jeopardize access to birth control

Abortion: Mostly ban or mostly legal?

Abrams: Legal. Led efforts to weaken 20-week abortion ban & to block TARP (Targeted Restrictions on Abortion Providers). "Staunch defender of reproduction choices."

Kemp: Ban. Supports "Heartbeat Bill" outlawing abortions after 6 weeks. As governor, will "sign the toughest abortion laws in the country."

Contraception: Allow employers to withhold contraceptive coverage from employees if disagree with it morally?

Abrams: No specific stand, but opposes Judge Kavanaugh for potentially jeopardizing "access to birth control."

Kemp: Yes. As governor, will sign a "religious freedom" bill that would allow withholding of contraceptive coverage.

Expand reproductive freedom to under-served areas

She will support reproductive freedom and access to treatment for women, regardless of ability to pay. Also, across our state, more than half of our counties lack access to OB/GYNs or pediatricians. Stacey will leverage state and federal programs to incentivize more doctors and medical personnel to locate in under-served areas, and she will work with practitioners to reduce our maternal and infant mortality rates and increase access to care.
