Washington – Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill Johnson released the following statement after President Trump tweeted false information about abortion later in pregnancy.

Statement from Alexis McGill Johnson, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“Donald Trump is, again, intentionally spreading false information about abortion. There is no such thing as abortion ‘up until the time of birth.’ That’s not how medical care works. Trump has proven over and over again that he will say anything to stoke fear and rally his base. This disgusting, blatantly false rhetoric is part of his full-on assault on women’s access to care and the right to an abortion.

“Trump and Mitch McConnell are rushing the confirmation of an anti-abortion Supreme Court justice to a lifetime appointment –– even as senators, White House staff, and the president himself are contracting and spreading COVID-19 at an alarming rate. And the president has emboldened Republican governors to use the global pandemic as a cover to make it harder for people to access time-sensitive reproductive health care, including abortion. 

“The urgency of electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris could not be greater. Our patients feel it every day. I feel it every day. Our lives and our health depend on it.”
