Dem Governor Candidate McCormick: “I Will Fight for Your Reproductive Rights and Freedoms”

The room was on fire Wednesday night at the April HamCo Connect meeting in Fishers as more than a hundred enthusiastic people turned out for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jennifer McCormick’s town hall on reproductive freedom.




McCormick, the former Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction, fielded questions from the audience about her position on the reversal of Roe v Wade and Indiana’s subsequent abortion restrictions, as well as how she and other elected Democratic leaders can stop the regressive policies of the Republican supermajority in the Indiana Statehouse.


All 6 Republicans running for their parties nomination were invited... predictably, not one showed.

All six of the Republicans vying for their party’s nomination for governor were invited to participate in the town hall; predictably, not one of them showed up.


McCormick electrified the crowd with her passionate stance against the recent ending of reproductive rights in Indiana, and predicted that the Republicans won’t stop there: they’ve already signaled that they are coming for IVF and birth control as well.


She reserved particularly strong criticism for Attorney General Todd Rokita, who made a sideshow out of attempting to punish an Indiana doctor who performed an abortion for a 10-year-old rape victim from Ohio just before Indiana’s ban went into effect.


As a prelude to the town hall, many of the other Democratic candidates in attendance took the opportunity to introduce themselves and help fire up the crowd:





Rep. Dr. Victoria Garcia Wilburn, the incumbent for Indiana House District 32 who is running for reelection.


Dr. Chris Hartig, the Democratic candidate for Indiana House District 29.


Matt McNally, the Democratic candidate for Indiana House District 39.


Ryan Pfenninger, one of two Democratic candidates for US Representative District 5.


Dr. Valerie McCray, one of two Democratic candidates for US Senate.


Beth White, one of two candidates for Indiana Attorney General.


Rep. Carey Hamilton, the incumbent for Indiana House District 87.


Fishers was the first stop on McCormick’s reproductive freedom town hall tour. Bloomington hosted her on Thursday night, and she will be in Merrillville on April 29.
