Kari Lake Refuses to Respond To Powerful Testimony From AZ Legislator on Abortion Rights

Mar 20, 2024

On Monday, Arizona state Senator Eva Burch shared her story on the floor of the state Senate about a wanted pregnancy that, for medical reasons, will have to end in abortion care.

Watch Burch’s powerful story here.

Kari Lake, the Republican frontrunner for U.S. Senate in Arizona, has said nothing about Burch’s heartfelt plea for health care access for herself and countless women across Arizona.

This isn’t surprising. Kari Lake has been steadfastly against abortion rights and reproductive health care access both in Arizona and across the country; promising an anti-choice agenda should she win a seat in the U.S. Senate.

  • Kari Lake has said that abortion is the “ultimate sin” and that “killing the baby in the womb is not health care.”

  • Lake called abortion rights a “national disgrace.”

  • Lake repeatedly called for Roe v. Wade to be overturned, calling it a “wildly inappropriate ruling.”

  • Lake thanked Donald Trump for nominating justices who overturned Roe v. Wade.

  • Lake called Arizona’s near-total abortion ban, which restricts access to the medical procedure even in cases of rape or incest, a “great law.”

  • Lake called for a “carbon copy” of Texas’ strict anti-abortion law to be put in place in Arizona.

“You can’t watch Senator Burch’s testimony and not be moved. Unless, it seems, you’re Kari Lake,” said Alexandra De Luca, vice president of communications for American Bridge 21st Century. “Lake’s radical, anti-choice beliefs are out of step with Arizonans and she knows it. She’s too scared to talk about the deep, personal truths Senator Burch shared this week. Kari Lake’s silence speaks volumes.”
