MoveOn: RFK Jr. would roll back abortion access, IVF, and reproductive freedom

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold access to the abortion pill mifepristone, MoveOn is reminding voters that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his right-wing running mate would roll back access to commonly used abortion drugs, IVF, and reproductive freedom across the board.

In response to the ruling, MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting issued the following statement:

“Abortion and access to reproductive health care are fundamental human rights, and regardless of this ruling, our right to control our bodies, lives, and futures is under attack from radical politicians like RFK Jr. Americans need to know that a vote for RFK Jr. will bring MAGA back to the White House, allowing abortion, IVF, and reproductive care to be outlawed in every state across the country. We cannot go back to the Dark Ages. Every voter needs to know that abortion is on the ballot this November, and that is why President Biden is the right choice to lead our country.”


  • RFK Jr. has constantly shifted his positions on abortion to suit the audience at hand. 
  • In interviews and on the campaign trail, RFK Jr. has repeatedly tried to walk back his anti-abortion stances, but with more conservative audiences, he signals support for the same 3-month abortion ban supported by Donald Trump. 
  • For years, his running mate Nicole Shanahan has been a longtime opponent of IVF.
  • RFK Jr.’s support for abortion restrictions places him at odds with the nearly two-thirds—and rising—of Americans who support the right to choose
