Gillibrand on Senate Pro-Life Bills: ‘All-out Assault on Women ... Taking away Their Moral Freedom’

‘It’s a horrible, horrible choice by Mitch McConnell to force these votes’


GILLIBRAND: "Yes, they will be defeated. Again, this is part of President Trump and Mitch McConnell’s all-out assault on women. They’re trying to harm women. They’re trying to take away their civil rights, human rights, their ability to make the most important intimate decisions of their lives. They’re taking away their religious freedom. They’re taking away their moral freedom when these two measures that we’re voting on literally changes the landscape of how we treat a baby who is born, who cannot survive outside the womb, and how those parents want those final moments with their child. It’s a horrible, horrible choice by Mitch McConnell to force these votes. And we voted on these measures before and they've lost. I think this is just a political ploy to satisfy those who are attending the CPAC Conference."
