Don’t misunderstand Sen. Chris Murphy right now, because he wants to be 100 percent clear. If Republicans take the House and Senate (as expected) this fall and the White House in 2024 (which is also a good bet), they’ll do what Democrats never got around to doing: passing a national abortion ban. This would fly in the face of the Dobbs decision, which kicked the abortion rights battle back to the individual states. He guarantees, though, that “women and doctors will be locked up for practicing health care.” We can go along with a lot of the Left’s language, but calling an abortion “health care” is a bridge too far … whose health is being cared for?
Let’s be 100% clear. If Republicans win control of the House, Senate and White House two years from now, they will pass a national abortion ban. And no matter where you live, no matter how pro-choice your state is, women and doctors will be locked up for practicing health care.

SCOTUS just said the decision rests with the states

Umm.. that will never happen since now it’s a state issue and to federalize it, there would have to be a constitutional amendment

No, they believe it belongs in the states to decide.

Senator, if Republicans have anything less than a 60-seat majority in the Senate, you do know there is a mechanism available to the minority to stop it, right? https://t.co/0PrvnTKVi4

.@ChrisMurphyCT proving once again that “let’s be clear” will always be followed by completely fabricated bullshit.

Ha. A Democrat senator has more faith in the competence of Republican elected officials than actual Republican voters. https://t.co/enUll0rBgN

Let’s be 100% clear. This is a liar who uses focus-group-tested lies to scare voters whom he thinks are stupid. https://t.co/wS1FN1k3on

Not just locked up for practicing health care:
Locked up or executed https://t.co/wajZsOhVMJ

Murphy knows the Democrats are still going to get trampled in the midterms. This is just more desperation.
