White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre heartily criticized Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt for signing the nation's "most extreme" abortion ban into law.
Jean-Pierre said during Thursday's briefing that the legislation would "undo a woman's fundamental right to make her own reproductive choices." A draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was released earlier this month.
OKLAHOMA ENACTS NATION'S STRICTEST ABORTION BAN
"Not only does this law ban abortion from the moment of fertilization, but it also adopts Texas's plan to allow private citizens to sue their neighbors for providing reproductive healthcare and helping women to exercise their constitutional rights," she continued, saying that the "law is the latest in a growing effort by ultra-MAGA officials across the country to roll back freedoms that should not be taken for granted."
Jean-Pierre added that "Roe has been the law of the land for almost 50 years, and it is under serious threat." She suggested that Roe's expected reversal this summer by the Supreme Court will soon give way to attacks on other contraceptive rights.
"The president believes that women have the fundamental right to make their own reproductive health choices," Jean-Pierre said. "He and the vice president and the entire administration are committing to protecting these constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms."
