DNC Chair Perez on Alabama Abortion Bill: The Far Right Has Been Attempting to Overturn the Will of the Majority

‘That’s so extreme’

EXCERPT:

PEREZ: "Unless her life is in danger. That is so extreme. But frankly, Ali, it’s not surprising. Because the far right has been attempting to overturn the will of the majority. 70 percent of the American people say very clearly Roe v. Wade is the law of the land. And leave these decisions up to women, up to families. It’s a very personal decision. I don't pretend to be able to step in the shoes of somebody in that circumstance, and we shouldn't try to step in the shoes of someone in that circumstance."
