New York City Mayor Eric Adams hypocritically condemned the pro-life movement as “radical” on Saturday, while at the same time signaling his support for abortion with “no” limitations.
According to reporting from Fox News, the mayor attended a pro-abortion “Bans Off Our Bodies” demonstration in New York City on Saturday, and stated that he believes in unrestricted abortion.
When asked during the protest whether he thinks any limitations should be placed on abortion, Adams said: “No, I do not.”
Using the hashtag “BansOffOurBodies,” the mayor tweeted: “Abortion is health care. It’s that simple. And New York City won’t let a group of radical extremists take away health care or any human right without a fight.”
Despite calling pro-life activists “radical extremists” for wanting to protect unborn children from being killed in their mothers’ wombs, Adams seems completely unaware of the fact that a majority of Americans would consider his own beliefs “radical” and extreme.
When pressed about his support for abortion up until the moment of birth, he gave the typical Democrat talking points as his answer, rather than actually talking about the issue, stating: “I think women should have the right to choose [for] their bodies. Men should not have that right to choose how a woman should treat their body.”
Over 400 pro-abortion protests took place across the country on Saturday, organized by groups such as Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, and other left-wing organizations focused on abortion. The organizers of these demonstrations threatened that the protests mark the start of a potential “summer of rage” should the Supreme Court move forward with overturning Roe v. Wade.
While Democrats have begun riling up their base for the midterms over the abortion issue, raising millions of dollars following the leaking of the early opinion draft indicating the Supreme Court was poised to overturn Roe and return the issue to the states, a recent CNN poll indicates that the decision will likely galvanize Republicans to come out and vote in the midterms more than it will Democrats.
According to the poll, 56% of GOP respondents said they were “extremely/very enthusiastic” about the upcoming election cycle, while only 43% of Democrats stated that they felt similarly.
