The Massachusetts senator also explained that the new law will be most harmful to people who don’t have easy access to abortion while appearing on ‘The View.’
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren said that it time for the government to listen to the American people and make sure Roe V. Wade is secure during a Wednesday October 13 appearance on The View. Joy Behar asked what Democrats can do to help protect reproductive rights, amid Texas’ abortion law, which virtually bans abortions after six weeks. Warren noted how many Americans support a women’s right to abortion.
Behar noted that the Supreme Court was preparing to hear cases related to abortion laws in Mississippi, and Elizabeth explained that most Americans support reproductive rights. “70 percent of all Americans want the rule of Roe v. Wade to be the rule in this country. When 70 percent of America wants something to be the law, it is time for Congress to step up, pass it into law, and do the will of the people,” she said.
Guest co-host S.E. Cupp also noted that there are plenty of people who would consider themselves pro-life, who don’t support laws like the Texas abortion laws. “There are even people on the pro-life side who think these laws are barbaric and punishing to women,” she said.
