Pelosi: Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade Is ‘Outrageous And Heart-Wrenching’

In an interview with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt on Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) slammed the possibility of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, calling it “outrageous” and “heart-wrenching.”

“Well, it’s outrageous, and it’s heart-wrenching,” Pelosi said. “I mean, to think that women — one out of three women in our country — have had to make the decision about whether to have an abortion, and now they have to worry about five men on the Supreme Court taking that right away from them.”

“It’s just so unfair,” she continued. “And I think that what we have to do is — let’s not take anything for granted, but let’s not despair, because despair is just what they want us to do.”

“I think that people — women in particular — are so energized to vote, and they were already,” Pelosi added. “But this just adds more fuel to the fire.”

Pelosi’s comments come as the Supreme Court is set to hear a challenge to Roe v. Wade later this month.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reacted to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, saying the Supreme Court is “ripping away a women’s right to make their own health decisions,” adding that Republicans are “plotting a nationwide abortion ban.”
