Bergman on federal abortion ban: "We're not going to talk about that today."

A new video by Distill Social shows Rep. Jack Bergman bumbling about “states' rights" when asked if he supports a federal abortion ban. 

Bergman has now claimed multiple times that the federal government should have no role in abortion decisions, but his votes tell a far different story.

Here are the facts, Jack. 

Bergman sponsored H.R. 431, the ‘Life at Conception Act’, which would provide  “equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.” This would federally restrict IVF and ban abortion. Nationwide. In every state.

He also sponsored H.R. 705, the ‘Heartbeat Protection Act,’ a federal abortion ban that would punish medical providers for up to five years if they perform an abortion after six weeks. Nationwide. In every state.

Bergman and the GOP only support ‘states rights’ when they agree with the oppressive laws they want to enforce nationally.

If the GOP gains power, make no mistake, they will quickly move to make state draconian laws national.

Women in MI01 deserve better. Women in Michigan deserve better. Women across the country deserve better.

Help us defeat Jack Bergman.
