WATCH: Democratic Governors Featured for Defending and Expanding Reproductive Health Care Access

Latest News

With the U.S. Supreme Court signaling an end to Roe v. Wade, national news stations are putting Democratic governors in the spotlight for expanding reproductive health care access and acting as the last lines of defense against GOP efforts to ban abortion.

Here’s a roundup of Democratic governors and candidates defending choice on tv this week:

  • Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker on MSNBC: “Illinois is already an island in the midwest that protects women … We’ve seen thousands of women here who have been left with no other choice than to cross state lines into Illinois to exercise their rights.”
  • New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on MSNBC: “A war has been declared on the American women … It’s incredibly disgusting, and we’re going to fight tooth and nail and do everything we can.”
  • Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on CNN: “I’ll keep doing what I’ve been doing throughout my term in office, and that is to keep vetoing any bill that challenges a woman’s right to make her own decision.”
  • Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro on MSNBC: “It’s clear that the battle to protect abortion rights is going to now happen in the states … Here in Pennsylvania, the stakes could not be higher … the Republican-led legislature will put a bill on the next governor’s desk to ban abortion, and we know that the leading [Republican] candidates would sign it into law and I would veto that bill.”
