“…And I think we should fight every battle and every cause until we win. Because the truth is President Trump wants a war with America’s women. It’s a war he’s going to have and it’s a war he’s going to lose [cheers, applause]…”

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) brought her 2020 presidential campaign to St. Louis Sunday afternoon for a town hall on reproductive rights. Around 330 individuals (that number comes from the campaign) attended the event.

Senator Gillibrand’s (D) remarks:

…President Trump’s rhetoric has emboldened over thirty state legislatures around the country to try to overturn Roe v Wade. he told us as a candidate he would only appoint judges and justices that want to overturn Roe. That’s who Kavanaugh is, that’s who Gorsuch is. And so, this has been an all out assault by President Trump and his cronies to take away women’s reproductive freedon…

…so we need a presidential nominee and we need the next president, who is unabashedly pro-choice. Someone who is going to see women’s reproductive freedom as the basic civil rights and human rights that they are. They should be our decisions to be made, no matter what…
