Jacky Rosen Statement on Donald Trump’s Offensive Abortion Comments

On MSNBC This Week, Trump Said Women Who Have Abortions Should Be Punished

Henderson, Nev. – Jacky Rosen, Democratic candidate for Nevada’s open 3rd Congressional District, released the following statement on Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s offensive comments advocating “punishment” for women who have abortions:

“Donald Trump’s comments in favor of banning all abortion and punishing women are offensive, disturbing, and have absolutely no place in our politics. Trump, like the rest of the Republican Party, opposes a woman’s right to choose, would defund Planned Parenthood, and wants to see Roe v. Wade overturned. Southern Nevada deserves better than these offensive attacks against a woman’s right to control her own body, and every candidate running for the 3rd Congressional District should denounce and disavow Trump’s out-of-touch remarks.”
