NARAL to GOP Leaders: Nobody But Yourselves to Blame

With several vulnerable GOP Senate candidates today reconsidering their long-running and consistent support for Donald Trump, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement:

“Republican leaders have nowhere to hide and nobody but themselves to blame for the situation they are in. Their flailing attempts to save their own political careers is the natural conclusion of a party that has spent decades telling women that it knew what was best for our bodies and our families. Be it Donald Trump, Mike Pence, or whichever anti-choice leader they end up favoring, they will still be pushing the same misogynistic agenda under different packaging.

"After enabling Trump's rise and pushing the same misogynistic agenda, the crass attempt by Sen. Ayotte, Congressman Heck, and other GOP leaders to save their own political careers with last-ditch denunciations is too little, too late. Standing up to a bully only when it suits your political interests isn't courageous, it's cowardly, and voters will hold them accountable."
