Biden's campaign manager warns about Trump's plan to ban abortion nationwide


The head of Joe Biden’s campaign, Julie Chávez Rodríguez, said this Saturday that former President Donald Trump (2017-2021) intends, if he returns to the White House, to “unilaterally ban abortion” at the national level, with or without the approval of Congress.

“It has never been clearer what the American people can expect from Donald Trump: if he is granted power, he will bypass Congress and further strip women of healthcare,” said the director of the Democrat’s re-election campaign in a statement.

Chávez referred to “new reports” that describe an alleged plan by Trump’s team to bypass Congress on this issue and “institute more devastating attacks on women’s access to healthcare.”

She branded these plans as “terrifying”, and also accused the former president of having said that women who have abortions should be punished and censured him for “boasting” about his role in the overturning of the Roe vs. Wade ruling, which protected access to abortion at the national level.

In 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States decided to end a ruling that constitutionally guaranteed the right to abortion in the country.

The Hispanic woman recalled a comment made by Biden this Friday in which he stated that Trump “has no idea of the power of American women,” something he “is about to discover in November,” the date of the next presidential elections.

The statement from Biden’s campaign chief also includes a warning from the president and executive director of Reproductive Freedom for All, Mini Timmaraju: “The most chilling part, alert, is the confidence that Trump’s advisers have that they can cause incalculable damage in his second term.”

“If they have another opportunity, they will act accordingly and the consequences will be unimaginable. We cannot afford to give them that opportunity, and 8 out of 10 Americans who support legal abortion will not allow it,” Timmaraju highlighted.

The president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Alexis McGill Johnson, said, for her part, that Trump “has already caused unprecedented damage to the right to abortion and to millions of people and that, if given the opportunity, he will try to bypass Congress to ban abortion nationwide.”

Trump is “a disaster for democracy and a disaster for sexual and reproductive health care,” said McGill.
