The Biden-Harris marketing campaign referred to as out the proposed plan to have Donald Trump unilaterally impose a nationwide abortion ban if he returns to the White Home.
NOTUS reported on the conservative plan:
Anti-abortion activists have their eyes on a much bigger prize: If former President Donald Trump wins a second time period within the White Home, they hope and anticipate that he’ll successfully ban abortions all through the US by prohibiting the cargo not simply of abortion medicine, however any instruments docs may use to induce an abortion.
They’re pinning their hopes on the Comstock Act, a collection of legal guidelines enacted in 1873 that prohibit the cargo of “each article or factor designed, tailored or meant for producing abortion.” The regulation was primarily unenforceable in the course of the Roe period, however a federal choose in Texas dominated in 2023 that the Comstock Act prohibits the cargo of the 2 medicine utilized in greater than half of all abortions at present.
Such an enforcement of Comstock would ban something used to carry out an abortion. Tools and medicine would not be shipped by means of the mail. Trump may unilaterally impose a nationwide abortion ban with out Congress or the courts doing a factor.
Biden marketing campaign spokesperson Shea Necheles responded in an announcement supplied to PoliticusUSA, “Every single day, Donald Trump and his allies are clearly laying out their harmful plan to inflict extra medical chaos and cruelty on girls throughout this nation. Overturning Roe wasn’t sufficient; now they’re operating to ban abortion nationwide, with or with out Congress. However voters have additionally been clear: they won’t stand for Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans’ assaults on their reproductive rights. This November shall be no totally different.”
The far-right is searching for methods to sidestep democracy to implement their unpopular agenda. When a Republican says they gained’t vote for a nationwide abortion ban what they’re leaving out is that they may not need to as a result of Donald Trump will do it for them.
Democracy and primary human rights are on the poll in 2024 and the American individuals must vote accordingly.
