“We always have to fight for the things that we shouldn’t even have to ask for,” Bush het aan Fox News gesê nadat sy byeengekom het 35 fellow House Demokrate supporting abortion rights. Onder hulle was Rep. Diana DeGette of Colorado, a Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus co-chair who was heard shouting, “Abortion is essential.”
The Supreme Court heard a case Wednesday regarding a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weke. Die geval, Dobbs v. Jackson, could upend Roe v. Wade, which in 1973 granted women the constitutional right to aborsies during the first two trimesters of pregnancy.
Pro-life and pro-choice demonstrators gathered outside the Capitol and the Supreme Court holding signs and megaphones.
“We have the freedom to make decisions about our lives, our futures and our families,” one speaker said through a microphone.
“Abortion is healthcare,” one sign read.
Bush told Fox News: “How we push now is going to affect what happens, jy weet, what we’re looking at in 10 jare, in 50 jare. We have to do this work now.”
“Die Hooggeregshof, this cannot be a partisan thing, this cannot be a partisan decision,” Bush, a member of the progressive Squad, vervolg.
Die Hooggeregshof, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, will likely announce its decision sometime in the spring.
