AOC Calls For Extreme Measures in Response to Roe v. Wade
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1865: U.S. Secret Service begins operating under the Treasury Department.
Ocasio-Cortez said Congress should immediately work on repealing the Hyde Amendment — which prohibits using federal funds for abortions.
“I will say, on a policy response, we should — we need to be working on repealing the Hyde Amendment in Congress right now,” the Congresswoman said.
“I am proud to say that we have successfully started to take the steps to repeal the Hyde Amendment. … repealing the Hyde Amendment will allow the federal government to invest in access to reproductive care on — in any place that has federal jurisdiction, including places with federal jurisdiction in red states.”
“I have brought up, for example, the prospects of increasing abortion access on federal lands in red states,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There are workarounds around this. We can start exploring this now.”
AOC’s comments come after she demanded that abortion clinics be opened on federal land immediately.
“Open abortion clinics on federal lands in red states right now!” Ocasio-Cortez told a crowd of pro-abortion protestors last week.
