Not too long ago, then-ultra-Conservative Republican Charlie Crist championed the life of the unborn child, opposing all forms of abortion.Remember when Charlie enfatically stated,”I am pro-life, I am pro-gun, and I am pro-family, and I am anti-tax and I always have been.”
After three election seasons and two political affiliations changes, now Democratic Rep. Charlie Crist has come full circle with his views on abortion.
In fundraising email ask to his Democratic base of support, Crist calls the new 20-week ban on abortion (late term abortion) an attack on women by Republicans in the U.S. Senate.
Here is the letter:
Friends,House Republicans once again played partisan politics with women’s health this week when they passed a 20-week abortion ban. Now, Donald Trump issued an executive order rolling back access to birth control.
We should be putting people ahead of politics. Instead, Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration are putting their own personal agendas ahead of the health and safety of women. That’s why I’m asking you to join this fight.
The 20-week abortion ban will now head to the Senate where Republicans maintain a majority. Let’s make sure this outrageous attack on women does not hit Donald Trump’s desk. We have the power to defeat it by speaking up together.
Are these the same women that counted on then-Republican Crist to campaign to ban abortion?
Remember, Crist isn’t going to change his stripes,right?
