House Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaks on Congress, health freedom and blames the Republican party for the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, allowing individual states to choose on abortion rights, Friday, June 24.
NANCY PELOSI: This morning, the radical Supreme Court is eviscerating Americans' rights and endangering their health and safety. But the Congress will continue to act to overcome this extremism and protect the American people. Today, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has achieved their dark, extreme goal of ripping away a woman's right to make their own reproductive health decisions. Because of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, the Republican Party, their supermajority in the Supreme Court, American women today have less freedom than their mothers. With Roe and their attempt to destroy it, radical Republicans are charging ahead with their crusade to criminalize health freedom.
