MAGA Mike Sapraicone Floats Seven Week Abortion Ban

NEW YORK – In a recent interview on 710 WOR, MAGA Mike Sapraicone, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, proposed the possibility of a seven week abortion ban. When asked about his stance on abortion, Sapraicone rejected New York’s current abortion protections calling New York’s laws “ridiculous,” referred to some abortions as "murder," and floated the seven week ban.


“News flash to MAGA Mike, New Yorker’s overwhelmingly support women's reproductive freedom and the ability to make their own health care decisions,” said NYS Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs. “MAGA Mike’s idea of a seven week ban falls right in line with Trump’s plans for a national abortion ban and is the kind of extreme policy that common sense New Yorkers have time and again rejected. While MAGA Mike is just introducing himself to New Yorkers, his recent rant rejecting New York’s abortion laws and floating a seven week ban tells New Yorkers all they need to know about his extremist views.”


Just last week, Senator Gillibrand responded to Trump’s threats of a national abortion ban and stated: “The threat of a national abortion ban is real. We must act now to defend American women’s freedom and equality. We need to certify and publish the Equal Rights Amendment immediately to enshrine women’s equal rights in the Constitution and protect every American’s freedom.”
