(Worthy News) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in an address delivered Thursday night at the 50th anniversary dinner of NARAL Pro-Choice America that abortion bans being sought by Republicans around the country “ignore basic morality.”
“The unified leadership of NARAL and the House is urgently needed at this precarious time for women’s health care and freedoms,” Pelosi said in her speech. “Today, as we know, an all-out assault on women’s reproductive freedoms is sweeping the nation, as Republicans seek to impose abortion bans on millions of women in dozens of states.
“These bans violate the Constitution. They ignore basic morality,” Pelosi said. “They imperil the health and well-being of countless women. And they showcase a radical Republican agenda that will stop at nothing to take away a woman’s right to make her own decisions upon her--about her health, her body, and the timing and size of her family.
