Pennsylvania — During last night’s debate, Mehmet Oz admitted that he believes “local political leaders” should make abortion decisions for Pennsylvania women.
If Oz had his way, ‘local political leaders’ like Doug Mastriano – who supports a ban on abortion with no exceptions and has said that women who violate his proposed ban should be charged with murder – would control Pennsylvania women’s most personal health care decisions.
See for yourself what Pennsylvania ‘local political leaders’ have done and said about abortion:
- Doug Mastriano, State Senator & Republican Gubernatorial Nominee, has said that he would ban abortion in Pennsylvania without exceptions – and that women who violate his proposed abortion ban should be charged with murder.
- Bryan Cutler, Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, was asked if he would support legislation that outlaws all abortions and said yes: “If we get the opportunity to pass such legislation, I do think it would pass and I would personally support it.”
- Stephanie Borowicz, Pennsylvania State Representative, proposed the “most restrictive” abortion ban in Pennsylvania with no exceptions for rape or incest, and said she wanted to drive a “dagger through the heart of Roe vs. Wade.”
- Aaron Bernstine, Pennsylvania State Representative, said Pennsylvania would “definitely” enact Mastriano’s extreme abortion ban with no exceptions if he were elected governor.
- Kathy Rapp, Pennsylvania State Representative, was “very happy” when Roe v. Wade was overturned, said she is prepared to advance “some of the strongest pro-life legislation in the history of our Commonwealth” after the ruling.
- Russ Diamond, Pennsylvania State Representative, has said that calling abortion ‘health care’ is an “insult to every human being ever born” and voted for legislation that would “open the door” to ban abortion in Pennsylvania.
- Joe Gale, Montgomery County Commissioner, has called the abortion ban passed in Texas “a step in the right direction towards ending the atrocity of abortion.” Gale even voiced support for its “private enforcement mechanism,” and when asked if he’d sign an abortion ban with an enforcement element similar to Texas’, said, “Yes. That’s my number one issue.”
