Kelly Schulz Desperate to Hide Anti-Choice Record From Marylanders
As Marylanders are deeply concerned over the draft ruling that would mean the end of Roe v. Wade, Kelly Schulz has been caught flip-flopping her stance now that it’s no longer politically convenient to support extreme anti-choice bans.
Yesterday, Schulz scrambled to change her tune on the issue, releasing a statement claiming she wouldn’t change current Maryland law as governor but neglected to mention her long anti-choice record.
As a state legislator, Schulz was endorsed by Maryland Right to Life and even co-sponsored legislation creating a constitutional amendment that would have effectively banned abortion with no exceptions. She’s also supported defunding reproductive health care providers.
The statement doesn’t appear on her website or Twitter profile. “It’s almost like she’s trying to hide it from Republican primary voters,” wrote David Lublin, American University Professor and former Chevy Chase Mayor.
Schulz still has questions to answer:
- If elected governor, would she use her powers to limit abortion access?
- Is her statement conditional on the election of enough numbers of Democrats to the General Assembly to override gubernatorial vetoes?
“Kelly Schulz is trying to walk the fine political line between appeasing the far-right and hiding her extreme record that is out-of-touch with the vast majority of Marylanders,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Her brand new claims yesterday only raise even more questions, including: Why is Kelly Schulz so scared to tell Marylanders about her anti-choice record?”
