NARAL Pro-Choice America Statement on Sen. Sinema’s Support of Michael Liburdi

For Immediate Release: February 13, 2019
Contact: media@prochoiceamerica.org

In response to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s statements in support of anti-choice judicial nominee Michael Liburdi, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:

“Senator Sinema, like so many Democrats, was elected last year in large part due to a wave powered by women voters who wanted to put a check on this runaway Administration. So to use one of her first acts in office to help elevate a judge with a clear anti-choice record is beyond troubling.

“Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and anti-choice activists are stacking the courts at a record pace with far right-wing judges that will strip away our rights and freedoms with the ultimate goal of gutting Roe v. Wade and criminalizing abortion.

“Democratic Senators should be doing everything in their power to fight these efforts to stack courts against women and families. Senator Sinema says she knows this person and we should trust her judgement; however, actions speak louder than words and his actions have spoken volumes about where he stands on our fundamental reproductive freedoms.

1. Is she anti-choice in general?

What's her position on this? If she was elected despite making it know that was her position, then can't really complain about that.

But if she says shes pro-choice then this is a betrayal.

I'm sure the usual "But she has to win re-election!!!" crowd will be along to tell me why I want a pony or don't understand how politics work or something.
