The following press release are from the DCCC. For the record, in no way/shape/form are groups like these “pro-life” (a right-wing propaganda term that Democrats and the media should never use), they are “anti-choice,” “pro-forced-birth,” etc. Other than that, these press releases are spot-on. So what’s the answer, Jen Kiggans and Yesli Vega?

NEW: Will Jen Kiggans Condemn Pro-Life Group’s Proposal to Force 10-Year-Old Rape Victims to Carry to Term?

Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe, a 10-year-old rape victim was forced to travel from Ohio to Indiana to receive care since Ohio’s six-week “trigger ban” now bars women and children from accessing abortion even in the case of rape.

The general counsel for prominent anti-choice group National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), Jim Bopp, bragged to Politico about his model legislation that would allow states to force this young girl and others like her to carry their rapist’s child to term. Will Jen Kiggans (VA-02) condemn NRLC’s proposal to force a 10-year-old rape victim to carry that pregnancy to term?

Said Bopp of the 10-year-old Ohio girl:

“She would have had the baby, and as many women who have had babies as a result of rape, we would hope that she would understand the reason and ultimately the benefit of having the child.”

“Jen Kiggans claims to be ‘pro-life’ – can she look voters in the eye and say whether she agrees with NRLC that 10-year-old rape victims should be forced to give birth?” said DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson.

Said Bopp of the 10-year-old Ohio girl:

“She would have had the baby, and as many women who have had babies as a result of rape, we would hope that she would understand the reason and ultimately the benefit of having the child.”
Vega recently came under fire for her dangerous false claim that pregnancy was “less likely after rape.”

“Yesli Vega claims to be ‘pro-life,’ but falsely claims that pregnancy is less likely after rape. Can she look voters in the eye and say whether she agrees with NRLC that 10-year-old rape victims should be forced to give birth?” said DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson.
