Zerlina Maxwell on Kavanaugh Court: ‘Women Are Not Going To Be Able to Get Birth Control’

‘women are not going to be able to get birth control or plan B or IUDs and the necessary health care that they need not just to prevent pregnancy, but just to take care of their own health care’

RUSH EXCERPT:

GURA: "All right. Senator Hirona from Hawaii. Does this make sense to be talking about impeachment?"
MAXWELL: "No, I don't think so. Not because it's not something that you should investigate. I think it's perfectly appropriate to say if we take back the house, we can use our subpoena power to investigate not just this but all of the other allegations against this administration in terms of corruption and other things. But in addition, I think you have to understand the process. You need 67 votes to remove a justice or the president in an impeachment proceeding, so it's not a realistic possibility. I think in the next 30 days you have to focus on turnout. You have to focus on winning back every single seat we can win on every level. The next fight that's going to take place, now that there's a serve majority is going to be on the state level. Anti-choice bills are already introduced in states like Iowa, Mississippi, for example. So women are not going to be able to get birth control or plan B or IUDs and the necessary health care that they need not just to prevent pregnancy, but just to take care of their own health care. There are a number of conditions where you need birth control to treat that. Are women in Iowa going to be able to get that if a heartbeat bill is introduced and then brought up to the Supreme Court and upheld? That's a reality for women and that's the next fight.
