During Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) reacted to Democrats as Rep. and U.S. Senate candidate from Ohio Tim Ryan opposing any restrictions on abortion by pointing out that despite Democrats’ claims that they merely serve to codify Roe v. Wade, “Roe vs. Wade is actually not as extreme as the positions the Democrats are talking about.
Tenney said, [relevant remarks begin around 4:20] “Late abortion is an extreme position…Roe vs. Wade is actually not as extreme as the positions the Democrats are talking about. But even in New York they made statements like we were just codifying Roe vs. Wade.”
She added, “[T]he world has changed in 49 years. We have centers like Care Net and pregnancy centers in crisis, people who want to adopt. We have ultrasounds that show a child in the womb and the Democrats are trying to just say it’s a fetus or a non-human. These dehumanizing attempts [are] exactly what extremist groups do.
