Magaziner blasts Fung for misleading statement on Roe v. Wade

Allen Fung DOES NOT support a woman's right to choose 

In response to the disastrous SCOTUS decision, Republican Allan Fung said: "Despite today's SCOTUS decision, nothing will change here in Rhode Island after the 2019 codification of Roe protections,” neglecting to mention he opposed the 2019 law that codified Roe protections in Rhode Island state law.  

General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner issued the following statement in reaction to Fung’s misleading remarks: 


“Allan Fung has consistently shown that he will not stand up for RI women.  And make no mistake: if the Republicans take control of Congress, they will pass a federal abortion ban that would override the state-level protections for reproductive choice that so many of us fought for.”
