Debbie Mucarsel-Powell Statement On The Supreme Court’s Decision Preserving Nationwide Access To Medication Abortion

Rick Scott Pledged To Back “Any Anti-Abortion Bill” On The Day Florida’s Abortion Ban Went Into Effect

Rick Scott Touted Endorsements From Extreme Republicans Who Cosponsored The Life At Conception Act, A National Abortion Ban With No Exceptions For IVF

Rick Scott: “I firmly believe that life begins at conception”

Miami, FL – Today, the Supreme Court decided to preserve access to the critical medication abortion pill used in nearly two-thirds of all abortions nationwide. The decision comes after Rick Scott and GOP extremists signed onto an amicus brief calling on the Supreme Court to override the FDA’s decision-making and reimpose restrictions on Mifepristone. In response, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell released the following statement:

“Although the Supreme Court has rejected Rick Scott’s baseless and unwarranted attacks on Mifepristone – a safe and effective drug approved by the FDA decades ago – Floridians’ freedoms are still at risk every day that Rick Scott is allowed to walk the halls of the U.S. Senate,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “Radical Rick’s staunch support for a nationwide restriction on medication abortion is just one more reminder of the threat his extreme anti-choice agenda poses to our fundamental reproductive freedoms. He would rather play partisan political games that put women’s lives at risk than give up control of our bodies. Scott will not stop at attacking women and banning abortion care, he will attack any access to contraception and family planning. Floridians deserve better than Rick Scott’s lies and deception – and that’s exactly why they will fire him in November.”
