Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment falls on New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District GOP Candidate Robert Burns.
Robert Burns, who has proudly touted himself as “100% pro-life from conception,” not only supports an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest, but once proposed a panel to decide if a woman’s life should be saved.
Washington Post: “Republican Robert Burns, who opposes abortion rights, prevailed in one House primary over a candidate backed by Gov. Chris Sununu (R)… Burns, an ex-county official nominated in the state’s other House seat, emphasized his own antiabortion views and beat a moderate mayor who called himself ‘pro-choice.’”
HuffPost: “But in July 2018, Burns was far more hard-lline on abortion, stating: ‘I’m 100% pro-life from conception.’ In an interview on a public access television program with state Sen. Kevin Avard (R), Burns also said he supported exceptions to an abortion ban when the life of the mother is at risk — and proposed that a panel would get to decide whether a pregnant person had a legitimate reason to get an abortion.”
Women should be making decisions surrounding their reproductive health care – not a panel. With less than 50 days until the midterms, Republicans continue to remind voters their reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November.
