DEBATE: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on Reproductive Rights

On June 27, 2019, night two of the first 2020 democratic debates, Gillibrand responded to a question on healthcare saying:

“I want to talk directly, directly to America’s women and to the men who love them. Women’s reproductive rights are under assault by President Trump and the Republican Party. Thirty states are trying to overturn Roe v. Wade right now. And it is mind-boggling to me that we are debating this on this stage in 2019 among Democrats whether women should have access to reproductive rights. I think we have to stop playing defense and start playing offense.”
