Washington, D.C. — Today, Nikki Haley became the second candidate to seek the Republican nomination for president. Like all the GOP primary hopefuls and contenders, Haley has a dangerous and unpopular record on abortion. Jenny Lawson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, responded to Haley's announcement: 

“Nikki Haley is a fickle, political opportunist who never fails to put her own interests above the rights and freedoms of millions of South Carolinians and all Americans. She does not believe that people have the right to control their own lives, bodies, and futures, and her extreme record on reproductive health care puts her out of touch with the American public. No matter how hard she tries, voters will reject her misinformation and fear mongering to further stigmatize abortion. Nikki Haley will not be president.”

As governor of South Carolina, Haley signed an abortion ban into law with no exceptions for victims of rape or incest and vetoed funding for rape crisis centers. Haley even criticized a pro-abortion rights law passed in Colorado, ignoring the views of the majority of Coloradans who support reproductive rights. Most recently, she celebrated the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and came out in support of a deceptive anti-abortion bill that peddles misinformation about abortion access and would criminalize providers.
