The fact is, the politicians making these false claims want to ban abortion. That’s wrong. These politicians are overstepping their role, and women and families don’t deserve to pay the price. When people are making difficult, complicated, personal medical decisions, one-size-fits-all laws don’t work.

Most of us try to live our lives without interfering in other people’s lives. We know that a woman may end a pregnancy for different reasons. We cannot make a woman’s decisions because we haven’t walked in her shoes. Tragically, sometimes a woman gets a diagnosis of a serious health complication that threatens her life or health. Other times, a family learns later in pregnancy there is a very serious fetal diagnosis, or the baby is dying and can’t survive for long. When people are making difficult, complicated, personal medical decisions, one-size-fits-all laws don’t work.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
