Democratic Senator from Hawaii Mazie Hirono spoke on the Senate floor on Wednesday to declare that pro-life legislation was a "literal call to arms" for Americans who are pro-abortion.
"This is an outright attack on women in this country," Hirono said. "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. And why? Because that's what's happening. Madam President, I yield the floor but clearly, you know, this is, this is a literally a call to arms in our country."
"Republicans are pandering, I think that's a really good word apt word, pandering to their extreme MAGA base and have now introduced a nationwide ban on abortion after 15 weeks," Hirono said, referencing a pro-life bill introduced by Lindsey Graham on Tuesday.
