Following Fridays news that the Supreme Court had overruled Roe v. Wade, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told reporters that SCOTUS had made the choice “to endanger the lives of all women and all birthing people in this country”

She added that they had also chosen to strip rights from men, too, saying: ” Because “the right to our own bodies and the right to form our families, this is something that belongs to all of us.”

The New York Democrat later joined the mounting protests in front of the Supreme Court to call the overturning of Roe “illegitimate” and call on people to join her in “the streets.”

Breitart reports: Ocasio-Cortez stated, “I think what the Supreme Court just did is that they chose to endanger the lives of all women and all birthing people in this country. But not only that, they’ve chosen to strip rights from men, too. Because, frankly, the right to our own bodies and the right to form our families, this is something that belongs to all of us. And it does not belong to lawmakers. It does not belong to nine Supreme Court justices. It does not belong to those justices who were appointed by presidents, many of whom didn’t even win the popular vote in this country. This is the cementing of minority rule in a lot of ways. And we’re going to have to fight a long road to get it back, but we’re not going to give up.”
