Republicans Vote to Uphold 1864 Ban as Democrats Fight for Repeal

April 10, 2024

For the second time today, House Republicans upheld 1864 abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest. This is happening at the same time that MAGA Republicans are lying to Arizonans about their long and detailed record of undermining abortion rights.

“These MAGA Republicans are blindly committed to fulfilling Donald Trump’s call to ban abortion and it’s exactly why they are going to be ousted by Arizona voters in November,” said Arizona Democratic Party Chairwoman Yolanda Bejarano. “They have consistently shown that all they want is an abortion ban and they will do whatever it takes to make it happen. They cannot sweep their record under the rug–  Arizona’s MAGA Republicans are cowards and rightfully scared that Arizonans will vote them out in November for taking away their rights.”

ADLCC Co-Chair Priya Sundareshan added, “I am disgusted by the actions of my peers, both lying about their stance on this issue so important to Arizonans, and refusing to repeal the 1864 ban. We are lucky to have Democrats who will do everything in their power to restore Roe protections for the millions of Arizonans who need reproductive healthcare. This is why we need to flip the legislature, pass the ballot initiative, and stop Republicans from taking away this right ever again.”

As a reminder, here’s how Arizona’s MAGA Republicans are lying about their long and detailed of undermining reproductive rights:
