Tiffany Smiley Responds To The Supreme Court’s Decision In Dobbs v Jackson
“81% of Americans disagree with Patty Murray, and so do I.” – Tiffany Smiley
PASCO, WA – Veterans advocate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson.
Tiffany Smiley said: “Today’s Supreme Court decision means the people’s representatives, not unelected judges, will make the decision on regulating abortion. Even then-Senator Joe Biden voted five times for common sense restrictions on late term abortions, while Patty Murray stood in opposition to those same mainstream proposals. There is one extremist on the issue of abortion in this race, and her name is Patty Murray.”
“I am pro-life, and I am pro-woman. We not only need to support the baby, but also the mom. As a triage nurse I saw the struggle of women facing crisis pregnancies firsthand. Sadly, these women are not who Patty Murray talks about. Instead, Senator Murray wants to make this race about her support for unrestricted late term abortions right up until the moment of birth. 81% of Americans disagree with Patty Murray, and so do I.”
“Patty Murray can grandstand and spin her record all she wants, but the facts prove she’s failed Washington moms time and time again. Just this Spring, Patty Murray sat silent for nearly three months as families struggled to find formula for their babies, only taking action once the real-world headlines overtook her out-of-touch ideological agenda. Washington moms desperately need our love and support, and being their advocate will be among my highest priorities as our next United States Senator,” concluded Smiley.
In December 2021, an Associated Press/NORC poll found that only 19% of Americans believe abortion should be unrestricted during the third trimester of pregnancies – including just 28% of Democrats. However, on six separate occasions, Senator Murray voted against imposing restrictions on late term abortions, legislation that overwhelmingly passed the U.S. Senate with bipartisan support on each occasion.
Of note, Murray’s votes in 1996, 1998, and again in 2003 stood in contrast to then-Senator Joe Biden, who voted with the overwhelming bipartisan majority for common sense restrictions on late term abortions up until the moment of birth. (104th Congress roll call votes: first session #596 and second session #301; 105th Congress roll call votes: first session #71 and second session #277; and, 108th Congress roll call vote: first session #402)
There is one extremist who is out of the mainstream on the issue of abortion running for United States Senate in Washington, and her name is Patty Murray.
