In His Own Words


“I want my colleagues on the other side to know: this isn't a game. These are women's constitutional rights we are talking about. But the majority continues to treat the lives and health of women like a game, using women's rights and women's bodies to score political points and placate their base.” 1 

"Hateful imagery and rhetoric about Jews controlling the world with their money has been used for centuries to foment anti-Semitism. Disgusting. Hurtful. Unconscionable. Inexcusable." 2
