Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday said that “Christian extremists” are “passing forced birth laws” to make it more difficult for a woman to abort her child, days after Texas’s pro-life law went into effect.
“While we fight back, know you still have options. Pills can be mailed to your home discreetly,” she continued:
Christian extremists are passing forced birth laws to intimidate & cut off abortion services – including for victims of rape, incest, & child abuse.
While we fight back, know you still have options. Pills can be mailed to your home discreetly.

Every woman, everywhere has the constitutional and moral right to basic reproductive health care. We will fight SB8 and all immoral and dangerous attacks on women’s health and freedoms with all our strength.

President Biden, who also identifies as a Catholic, has also rebuked the law despite accepting the position years ago that “the moment of conception is a human life and being.”
He explicitly rejected that view this week.
“I respect those who believe life begins at the moment of conception and all… I respect that. Don’t agree. But I respect that,” Biden told reporters following a White House speech.
