A Friday morning press conference to announce the launch of a new reproductive rights hotline veered into campaign territory Friday as Gov. Ned Lamont named U.S. Senate candidate Leora Levy and by extension his Republican opponent as threats to abortion rights nationwide.

“This is not over. This is a warning shot across the bow, what you saw come out of the Supreme Court,” Lamont said from a podium positioned beneath the face of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who features prominently in a vibrant mural of female leaders painted on the Market Street offices of the Community Renewal Team.

  • What happened to the 2000 Democratic Part platform eschewed by Joe Libermann and Al Gore. Abortion should be safe, legal and rare? Today’s Democratic platform wants to do drive thrus for “mcondalds style abortions.” Most Democrats also want abortion up until 9 months. If you are doing abortion the day before birth — that is infanticide.

    • Well said! Pro Choice supporters should watch a video of a late term abortion that they advocate for, they just might change their minds when they actually see what happens as they end the baby’s life.
