Statement of California Democratic Party Senior Strategist Shawnda Westly on Republicans’ Disrespect for Women

“Donald Trump said today that women who have abortions should face ‘some form of punishment,’ and Ted Cruz’s campaign repeated that he would outlaw abortion and punish doctors. Just when we didn’t think it was possible, Republicans’ disrespect for women hit a new low. Their outrageous views aren’t just patronizing and demeaning, they are dangerous to women’s health because they ignore the complex reality of women’s reproductive health and undermine the relationship between a woman and her doctor. These men have no business telling women how to care for their bodies.”
