Roe v. Wade ruling ‘not an extreme position’ – it was a ‘compromise’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade wasn’t “extreme” because it was a compromise.

Pelosi said, “Roe v. Wade was not an extreme position. Roe v Wade was a compromise. He weighs stocks in terms of timing and everything else. We have to make sure to keep the focus on enshrining Roe v. Wade in law so that there cannot be undue burdens placed on her in different states of the union to overturn a woman’s right to choose. Now, when you hear the debate now, Republicans say, “Oh, they want that.” They want that. No, we want this calibrated position that was declared by the Supreme Court to be truly upheld by Casey, and 14 times there have been court decisions dealing with precedent and privacy contained in Roe v. Wade.

She added, “Let’s not take our eyes off the ball, and Republicans mean let’s talk about how the leak came out. No, we’re talking about what it means in the lives of the American people and our commitment to the calibration contained in Roe v. Wade, and we want to enshrine that in law.
