Kari Lake Releases Statement on Arizona Supreme Court Abortion Ruling


Phoenix, AZ - Following today’s Arizona Supreme Court’s abortion ruling, Kari Lake released the following statement: 

“In addition to covering the state of Arizona as a fair and honest journalist for 27 years, I have traveled to every corner of this state on the campaign trail. I speak to more Arizonans than anyone and it is abundantly clear that the pre-statehood law is out of step with Arizonans. 

I am the only woman and mother in this race. I understand the fear and anxiety of pregnancy, and the joy of motherhood. I wholeheartedly agree with President Trump — this is a very personal issue that should be determined by each individual state and her people. I oppose today’s ruling, and I am calling on Katie Hobbs and the State Legislature to come up with an immediate common sense solution that Arizonans can support. Ultimately, Arizona voters will make the decision on the ballot come November. 

As your Senator, I will OPPOSE:

– Federal funding for abortion 

– Federal ban(s) on abortion

As your Senator, I will FIGHT FOR:  

– Baby Bonuses

– Making adoption more accessible and affordable 

– Strengthening the economy so that Mothers can AFFORD a baby 

– Protecting IVF 

– Extending the child tax credit 

– Paid family leave

– Investing in childcare

I am not going to D.C. to legislate an issue that has been returned to the states. I am going to D.C. to secure our border, strengthen our families and help President Trump Make America Great Again.”
