New York Dem says we are not 'in a democracy' without abortion access

“We’re not even in a democracy if women can’t make decisions about their own bodies,” Rep. Carolyn Maloney told Fox News in front of the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

“We are speaking out against any efforts to roll back Roe v. Wade,” Maloney, who chairs the House Oversight and Reform Committee, said as she exited her car to join a demonstration alongside other House Democrats.

The Supreme Court heard a case Wednesday regarding a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks. The case, Dobbs v. Jackson, could upend Roe v. Wade, which in 1973 granted women the constitutional right to abortions during the first two trimesters.
