FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, September 2nd, 2022 Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Oceanside, CA - Brian Maryott has been trying his level best not to answer questions about abortion in the wake of the Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade.But he has already made his radical position clear: Brian Maryott favors banning all abortions from the moment of conception.
This extraordinarily fringe position would not only eliminate all abortion, it would outlaw in-vitro fertilization, IUDs and other forms of birth control including Plan B. He would permit no exceptions for rape, incest or the life of the mother.
How do we know Maryott takes this radical position? Because he told us so himself.
While refusing to answer questions from local newspapers like the Orange County Register and the San Diego Union-Tribune, he did fill out a questionnaire for the radical anti-abortion organization iVoterGuide.com. This is what he told them in 2020.
Further, in his 2018 campaign (where he ran as the most pro-Trump candidate in the Republican primary) Maryott specifically stated in his “Reproductive Matters” section: “I believe human life begins at conception…” He removed that section for his 2020 campaign, but Project VoteSmart captured and preserved the 2018 site.
No wonder Brian Maryott celebrated when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in their Dobbs decision in June. On his Twitter feed, Maryott called the decision “a historic day for the Supreme Court..."
Voters have a clear choice in this election. Mike Levin, a staunch supporter of a woman's right to control her own reproductive decisions, or Brian Maryott, who takes the most extreme anti-choice position imaginable.
Brian Maryott needs to start telling voters the truth.
