Angry House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Friday blamed former President Donald Trump and Republican leadership for Friday’s massive victory for life, labeling the Supreme Court ruling — which allows states to set their own abortion laws and will undoubtedly save countless lives — as “cruel” and “heartwrenching.”
“Today, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has achieved the GOP’s dark and extreme goal of ripping away women’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions,” the 82-year-old Democrat said in a statement, attributing the pro-life victory to Trump, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and the Republican Party.
“Because of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, the Republican Party & their supermajority on the Supreme Court, American women today have less freedom than their mothers. Radical Republicans are now charging ahead with their crusade to criminalize health freedom,” Pelosi stated.
“In the states, they want to arrest doctors offering reproductive care & women for terminating a pregnancy. GOP extremists are threatening to criminalize contraception, in-vitro fertilization & post-miscarriage care,” she aded.
“A woman’s fundamental health decisions are her own to make, in consultation with her doctor & her loved ones – not to be dictated by far-right politicians. While Republicans seek to punish & control women, Democrats will keep fighting ferociously to enshrine Roe v. Wade into law,” she stated.
