Ilyse Hogue Hits Anti-Choice State Attacks on "Hardball with Chris Matthews"
Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, discussed new anti-choice legislative attacks across the country and politicians' cheating tactics on "Hardball with Chris Matthews."
"[Anti-choice politicians'] goal has remained the same: to outlaw abortion as well as women's other reproductive choices...What's more interesting is how they're resorting to do it. These politicians in Texas and North Carolina, and I'm from Texas as well, know that they don't have popular support on their side, and so they're resorting to cheating, changing the rules, doing these things under the dark of night.
I think women have had enough. That's what we're seeing in Texas and in North Carolina. We're getting calls from national members everywhere asking "what can we do?" This is it, this is enough. We will support Texas, we will support North Carolina, and we will get these folks out of office that are driving these extreme policies that are bad for women, and bad for our families."
