Miller-Meeks Can’t Stop Misleading Iowans About Her Anti-Abortion Record

Mariannette Miller-Meeks knows her dangerous anti-abortion record is completely out-of-touch with southeast Iowans, and she has one simple solution to cover it up - deception.

In a Fox Business interview, Miller-Meeks falsely claimed that suggestions that she supports banning abortion were "lies" and "fabrications."

FACT CHECK: Miller-Meeks co-sponsored the Life At Conception Act, which is a total national abortion ban with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the woman's life.

Then, Miller-Meeks pivoted to contraception to distract from her dangerous anti-choice record…

FACT CHECK: She's already been exposed for trying to point to an "essentially meaningless" contraception bill to avoid questions on her dangerous record. The truth is that she voted against the Right to Contraception Act.

For the grand finale, Miller-Meeks said she supports IVF fertility treatments and claimed there are no bills limiting IVF.

FACT CHECK: The Life At Conception Act Miller-Meeks co-sponsored would effectively ban IVF. And in the state legislature, Miller-Meeks voted for a bill that could have threatened access to abortion, contraception, and IVF.

Additionally, if Miller-Meeks actually supported IVF, she could have signed onto a bill that would protect the right to seek fertility treatments. Instead, she signed a non-binding resolution that has been deemed "useless " and "disingenuous."

DCCC Spokesperson Mallory Payne:
"No amount of lies will change the fact that Mariannette Miller-Meeks has one of the most dangerous anti-abortion records in Congress. Iowans are fed up with Miller-Meeks' attempts to rewrite history and put politicians in charge of women's reproductive health care decisions."
