Philadelphia Inquirer: David McCormick Called the Overturning of Roe v. Wade “A Huge Victory”

PENNSYLVANIA — The Pennsylvania Democratic party has launched a billboard in Montgomery County highlighting David McCormick’s anti-choice record, two years after Roe v. Wade was overturned. The billboard puts a spotlight on McCormick celebrating the overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling it “a huge victory.”

Pennsylvania Democratic Party spokesperson TaNisha Cameron issued the following statement:

The second anniversary of the Dobbs decision is a stark reminder that David McCormick not only supports a dangerous abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest, but he loudly celebrated the court decision that stripped women of their rights.”

Here’s What to Know About David McCormick’s Anti-Choice Agenda:

  • When asked directly in a 2022 debate whether he believed there should be exceptions for abortion in the cases of rape, incest, or life of the mother, McCormick responded only “in the very rare instances there should be exceptions for the life of the mother.”
    • Axios: “David McCormick…said during a debate in Harrisburg last month he’s fully against all scenarios involving abortion, apart from ‘in the very rare instances there should be exceptions for the life of the mother.’”
    • HuffPost: “McCormick has said that life begins at conception and that he does not support exceptions in abortion laws for rape or incest.”
    • HuffPost: “McCormick said in a May 2022 debate with Oz that he supports banning abortion with an exception only when the pregnant person’s life is in danger, and not in cases of rape or incest.”
    • WESA: There was no “pushback from the McCormick campaign.”
