Kemp Continues Campaign Events With Anti-Choice Extremists

September 9, 2022

Today, Brian Kemp is campaigning with yet another anti-choice extremist as former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley joins him after his campaign event yesterday with Senator Mitch McConnell and 16 other U.S. Senators who want to pass a national ban on abortion. Today’s event with Haley is just the latest example of Kemp standing with Republican politicians who want to roll back Americans’ rights after Kemp admitted he wants to go further than his dangerous six-week abortion ban and outlaw abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.

While Nikki Haley was governor, she signed a ban on abortion with no exceptions for victims of rape or incest and recently, she celebrated the attack on women’s right to choose with the fall of Roe v. Wade.

“Brian Kemp continues palling around with extremists who want to pass a national ban on abortion or make aboriton illegal with no exceptions — dangeous positions that threaten Georgians’ lives, health, and freedom. We already know Kemp believes abortion should be outlawed with no exceptions for survivors of rape or incest, but there’s still a lot we don’t know. Kemp has repeatedly refused to answer critical quesitons on how his extreme ban could lead to investigations of women and prosecutions of doctors for seeking and providing abortion care — and Georgians deserve answers,” stated Max Flugrath, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.

Kemp’s extreme abortion ban continues to put Georgians’ health at risk. Doctors and patients are concerned that Kemp’s restrictive abortion law could hamper women’s access to life-saving treatment for miscarriages and experts “believe women could be investigated if there are questions about whether they miscarried or had an illegal abortion.” Doctors will be impacted, too, potentially hesitating to provide miscarriage treatment due to the “increased risk of criminal penalties”.
