The Supreme Court’s overturn of abortion rights: Nancy Pelosi condemns decision

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemns the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, calling it a ‘cruel act’ and ‘deadly serious.’

Video Transcript

NANCY PELOSI: To see the chief justice side with this radical agenda, it's just stunning. And again, as a woman, as a mother, as a grandmother, to see young girls now have fewer rights than their moms or even their grandmothers, it's something very sad for our country.

Be aware of this. The Republicans are plotting a nationwide abortion ban. They cannot be allowed to have a majority in the Congress to do that. But that's their goal. This is deadly serious. But we are not going to let this pass. A woman's right to choose, reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November. We cannot allow them to take charge so that they can institute their goal, which is to criminalize reproductive freedom.

Yesterday, they say the states cannot make laws governing the constitutional right to bear arms. And today, they're saying the exact reverse, that the states can overturn a constitutional right for 50 years, a constitutional right, for women having the right to choose. The hypocrisy is raging. But the harm is endless. This cruel ruling is outrageous and heart wrenching. But make no mistake, again, it's all on the ballot in November.
