Fact!

Republicans are attacking women’s reproductive freedoms, including the right to safe abortions, birth control, and IVF. Trump takes credit for overturning Roe, said he would punish women who get an abortion, supports states’ tracking women’s pregnancies and supports prosecuting people who help with abortions.

The Biden-Harris administration has taken action to protect abortion rights and fight for reproductive freedoms, including access to FDA-approved medication abortion, affordable contraception, and accurate information.
