EMILY’s List Puts Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick ‘On Notice’ For His Extremist Anti-Abortion Positions

The Republican congressman joins the ranks of 23 other GOP lawmakers whose seats the group hopes to flip in 2024 due to their anti-choice votes.

Political action committee EMILY’s List wants Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick to know they have every intention to ensure his defeat in a 2024.

Fitzpatrick, who represents Pennsylvania First District, is one of 23 House Republican extremists that the group is targeting for their repeated votes against a woman’s right to choose.

“Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick wants to restrict abortion and roll back reproductive freedom, not just for residents of Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District, but for all Americans,” EMILY’s List President Laphonza Butler said

Butler detailed that Fitzpatrick has twice voted against the Women’s Health Protection Act, he voted for a bill that spread disinformation about abortion and stigmatized doctors and he has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“Fitzpatrick cannot be trusted to fight for our rights, and it is high time that we vote him out and replace him with a true pro-choice champion,” Butler added.

Since 1985, EMILY’s List has worked to elect Democratic pro-choice women to political offices across the nation. The PAC has raised $850 million to recruit, train and build strong campaigns to elect female candidates sharing their vision of “Run. Win. Change the World.”

The organization helped to elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color.
