Schreibman slams Gibson over recent vote regarding abortion
Julian Schreibman, Democratic candidate for the Hudson Valley/Catskills region, recently released the following statements regarding this week’s House vote to ban abortion in the District of Columbia after 20 weeks of pregnancy - even in cases of rape and incest - and slammed Congressman Chris Gibson’s vote to support the ban:
“While Congressman Chris Gibson pretends to be a moderate, his vote to criminalize abortion even in cases of rape and incest is appalling,” said Jonathan Levy, campaign manager. “This vote is just another example of Congressman Gibson’s rhetoric not matching his record. Fortunately, his radical agenda did not win the day this time.”
“Health care decisions such as these should be made between a woman, her doctor, her family and her faith,” said Julian Schreibman, Democratic Congressional candidate. “Congressman Gibson and his Republican allies are out of touch with the way families in this country make these decisions, and the fact that this bill would put doctors in jail is extremely concerning. Even worse, this vote shows they are putting politics over common decency in these most horrific cases.”
“If you send me to Congress, I will not waver in my commitment to protecting women’s health services and an individual’s access to quality care,” Schreibman said.
