'We Won’t Get Over It’: Keene Leaders Speak Out Against Bolduc’s “Get Over It” Comment
In the first stop of the “We Won’t Get Over It” tour, Keene leaders today slammed Don Bolduc for his recent comment telling Granite Staters to “get over” a national abortion ban.
In Keene’s Central Square, Executive Councilor Cinde Warmington, State Representative Donovan Fenton and State Representative Amanda Elizabeth Toll spoke out against Bolduc’s callous comments and anti-choice record, and made clear that he would be a yes vote for a nationwide abortion ban.
See quotes from the event below:
“Don Bolduc wants women in New Hampshire to ‘get over’ the fact that Republicans in Washington are trying to end access to abortion and roll back our reproductive rights,” said Executive Councilor Cinde Warmington. “I want to make something very clear to Don Bolduc: Granite Staters are not going to ‘get over’ Republican lawmakers trying to tell us what we can and cannot do with our bodies, and we are not going to ‘get over’ Bolduc’s extreme, anti-choice record that makes it clear he would take us backward.”
“I am angered by Don Bolduc’s comments. Don Bolduc, who told us to ‘rejoice’ at the end of Roe v. Wade, wants us to ‘get over it’ — the fact that if Republicans re-take their majority in Washington, they will pass a national ban on abortion. I am not going to get over this, and neither will the people of New Hampshire,” said State Representative Amanda Elizabeth Toll.
“I can tell you what Granite Staters are over: They are over Republicans like Don Bolduc, who don’t trust a woman to make her own health care choices and who want to let the government instead make those decisions for women. They are over the incessant attacks on reproductive rights that we’ve seen across the country and right here in New Hampshire,” said State Representative Donovan Fenton.
Bolduc has said he would never vote against anti-choice legislation in the United States Senate and that New Hampshire’s abortion ban did not go far enough. And when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Don Bolduc said that Granite Staters should “rejoice.”
