Gillibrand: Ala. Abortion Bill ‘Is a Nationwide Attack on Women’s Reproductive Freedom’

‘We have to fight now harder than we have ever fought before’

EXCERPT:

GILLIBRAND: "Well, we have to shine a light on this issue. We have to raise up voices of the women who will be affected by this draconian and inhumane policy. And make no mistake, this is a nationwide attack on women’s reproductive freedom, on their basic civil rights and basic human rights. Over 29 states in this year alone are attacking women’s constitutional rights and we have to fight. We have to fight now harder than we have ever fought before. So I’m traveling to Georgia tomorrow to talk about the law that has just passed there, to lift those voices up of the women who are deeply affected and to make sure that America understands that this is going to be a fight for something that is so important and personal to every woman, that decision to make these kinds of life or death intimate decisions about our families and our bodies."
