Far-left U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) demanded a “call to arms” for pro-abortion individuals, claiming pro-lifers are carrying out an “outright attack on women.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Hirono’s remarks came after Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina announced the introduction of the Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act Tuesday, which would prohibit abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy while allowing states to have stronger protections.
“Talk about government overreach,” Hirono said. “When I hear my colleagues talking about how it should be states’ rights or government should not be telling us what to do, the word ‘hypocrites,’ it doesn’t even go far enough to call them out on what they’re doing. This is an outright attack on women in this country. That is how I see it.”
“That is how more and more women and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies, that is how we see it,” Hirono continued. “And why? Because that’s what’s happening. Madam President, I yield the floor. But clearly, this is a — literally call to arms in our country. I yield the floor.”
Hirono is not new to extreme remarks, with much heated rhetoric targeting pro-lifers, Republicans, and conservatives in general.
