LISTEN: In Newly Uncovered Interview, Doug Mastriano Says Women Who Violate Abortion Ban Should Be Charged With Murder
In a previously unreported interview with Pennsylvania radio station WITF, Doug Mastriano said that women should be charged with murder if they violated his proposed abortion ban. Listen to the audio here.
Facing pushback for sponsoring legislation banning abortion before most women know they’re pregnant and asked if he was saying they should be charged with murder, Mastriano responded, “Yes, I am.”
Mastriano has repeatedly stated his top priority if elected would be to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest, calling it “the single most important issue … in our lifetime.”
