So more black children will likely be living their lives in the foster care system, which is setting them up for generational trauma and systemic challenges.”

Qiana Arnold, Dallas-based Afiya Center, on the disproportionate effect of Roe’s fall will have on poor communities

“In no uncertain terms, we are reinforcing that we expect providers to continue offering these services, and that federal law preempts state abortion bans when needed for emergency care.  Under the law, no matter where you live, women have the right to emergency care — including abortion care.”

Pete Buttigieg, Transportation Secretary, responding to FOX News’ Mike Emanuel about a Tweet Buttigieg’s husband had sent about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, to Erin Morrow Hawley, wife of Rep. Josh Hawley, over the issue of ectopic pregnancies

Erin Morrow Hawley is senior counsel for the right-wing Alliance Defending Freedom.  Pressley asked Hawley to provide a percentage of ectopic pregnancies that can be carried to term.  Hawley correctly responded with “zero”, but insisted that saving the life of the parent in instances where the ectopic pregnancy ruptures is not “abortion.”
