In an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday, radical Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) stated that after the leak of the draft opinion on Roe v. Wade, she’s worried about “the 36 million women” and “other folks, people who can become pregnant,” losing access to abortion.
Bush said, “You know, just hearing the president speak and hearing just the announcement that came before that that this is real, that this is what’s going to happen, it felt like a hammer came down. I’m thinking about the 36 million women, nearly half of the women of reproductive age between 18 and 49. I’m thinking about them in the U.S. I’m thinking about other folks, people who can become pregnant, and how they lose this access, the access to abortion.”
Fact check: contrary to Democrat dogma, there are no “other folks” besides women who can get pregnant.
“And I think about what my mindset was at the time when I needed that help,” she continued, discussing her own decision to kill her baby. “And when we think — we have to look at it this way: When I went to get my abortion, I didn’t go to a gas station. I didn’t enter a fast food restaurant. I didn’t go to a bank. I went to a healthcare facility because abortion care is health care.”
Not for the baby, it’s not.
“And we are taking away — this will take away folks’ access to safe abortions,” she added. “And I’m thinking about those that have this need, and that need — that option will be gone.”
Fact check: overturning Roe v. Wade will not abolish abortions — it will simply give the choice back to each state.
