“이 결정과 이 정책은 그들의 스핀과 요점이 무엇이든 상관없이 사람들을 죽일 것입니다.,” Ocasio-Cortez는 MSNBC에서 “언론을 만나다” 일요일 아침에.
Host Chuck Todd has asked the congresswoman about Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signing into law a “trigger” statute that banned all abortions in the state except in the event to save a mother’s life. The law was signed after the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe on Friday.
“I couldn’t disagree more with Governor Hutchinson, but I think what’s really important is honing in on this idea that the … the governor and the Republican Party, and frankly the Republican legislature in Arkansas, cares about the life of a woman and the life of a mother,” Ocasio-Cortez 님의 메시지.
She went on to argue that the state has a high maternal mortality rate and children living in poverty, 속담 “forcing women to carry pregnancies against their will, will kill them.”
“The state of Arkansas and Governor Hutchinson governs over a state that has the third-highest maternal mortality in the United States. 71% of the women who die are Black women as well. This is a state that has 26% child poverty, where one-in-four children are … living in poverty in the state of Arkansas.”
“It will kill them, especially in the state of Arkansas, where there is very little to no support for life after birth, in terms of healthcare, in terms of childcare, and in terms of combating poverty,” 그녀는 계속했다.
Ocasio-Cortez has called the Supreme Court ruling on Friday “illegitimate” and called for supporters to take to “the streets” to fight for abortion.
The Supreme Court’s ruling on Friday, which effectively ends the recognition of abortion as a constitutional right, comes after a leaked draft opinion in May signaled the nation’s highest court would overturn Roe.
