Biden-Harris 2024 Releases New TV Ad on the Fight for a Woman’s Right to Emergency Medical Care
Dr. Lauren Miller: “Donald Trump Did This: He put women’s lives in danger.”

Today, following the Supreme Court ruling in Moyle v. United States on access to emergency abortion care, Biden-Harris 2024 is releasing a new TV ad reminding voters that more than 20 abortion bans remain in effect across the country, putting women’s lives at risk. The ad features a testimonial from Dr. Lauren Miller, a high-risk obstetrician who was forced to leave Idaho because of the extreme abortion ban at the heart of today’s Supreme Court case, which left her facing potential criminal charges for treating her patients – even in cases to protect their lives.

Unfortunately, Idaho is not the only state where doctors and patients are in danger. When Donald Trump overturned Roe v. Wade, he unleashed extreme bans across the country that threaten doctors with jail time for caring for their patients. Because of these bans, women across the country are being turned away from emergency rooms and forced to the brink of death before receiving the care they need. President Biden has been clear: we must pass a federal law restoring the protections of Roe to undo Trump’s damage and protect reproductive health care access in all 50 states.

The following is a statement from Biden-Harris 2024 Campaign Manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez:

“Women’s health, lives, and freedoms remain in peril across the country because of Donald Trump. Because Trump’s Supreme Court majority overturned Roe v. Wade, women are being turned away from emergency rooms and forced to the brink of death before receiving the care they need. If Trump returns to the White House, he and his allies would ban abortion in all 50 states – without the help of Congress or the courts – putting even more women’s lives at risk. The only way to stop Trump and his MAGA allies is to vote this November and  re-elect President Biden and Vice President Harris. They will never stop fighting for reproductive freedom, and they are working to restore the protections of Roe so that women in every state have access to the care they need.”

Following Donald Trump’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, women have faced devastating life-threatening consequences of extreme abortion bans. Now, Trump wants to ban abortion nationwide if he wins. Here are just a few examples of what women have faced because of Donald Trump, which will become even more common in all 50 states if he wins in November:

  • In Texas, one woman miscarried in the lobby restroom of an emergency room after front desk staff refused to admit her.
  • In Florida, another woman faced life-threatening denials of care following a miscarriage. She was sent home from the hospital, then miscarried and lost half the blood in her body over the course of a day.
  • In Missouri, a woman’s water broke before labor. Even though her pregnancy was not viable and a threat to her life, she underwent a horrific process searching for care across three states, ultimately going into labor while en route to obtain care in a different state.

WATCH

DR. LAUREN MILLER: In a medical emergency, seconds matter.

When you’re the only person in the emergency room at 2 AM in the morning, and someone comes in hemorrhaging, and they are pregnant, you’re responsible.

Two years ago, Trump overturned Roe v Wade. Because of the abortion bans across the country, women’s lives are at risk.

Physicians could be tried with a felony for saving that woman’s life too early. The penalties are so severe; felony, imprisonment, loss of license, those are terrifying things.

These laws are truly barbaric. They are putting us back decades, if not centuries.

Donald Trump did this. He put women’s lives in danger.

This election is the most important election of my generation and my daughter’s generation.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will protect our fundamental rights, putting healthcare decisions back in the hands of women and their doctors.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.
