MoveOn Statement on GOP Continuing to Ban IVF Treatment

Washington, D.C.Following the news that Senate Republicans blocked U.S. Senator Duckworth’s bill to protect IVF treatment, MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting issued the following statement:

“Once again MAGA extremists are showing us their true colors. They will stop at nothing to take away our rights, our freedoms and try to control our bodies. Even by their standards, today’s action was shocking and disgusting. 

After a week of empty rhetoric trying to distance themselves from the Alabama ruling, they are showing us who they really are through their actions. 

“Just like they’ve appointed judges and voted to restrict and ban abortion rights and they’ve appointed judges and voted to restrict and ban contraception, MAGA Republicans are actively taking part in a coordinated effort to restrict and ban IVF. 

“Abortion, IVF, and contraception are on the ballot in November. MoveOn will continue to engage voters on the stakes of these issues because the only way to protect our rights, freedoms and health care is to vote Republicans out and defeat their MAGA extremist agenda.”
