Jean-Pierre used the Biden administration’s new favorite word as an opportunity to criticize Republicans in the mold of Trump.
The White House has used several strong adjectives to condemn a new abortion measure that was just approved by the Oklahoma Legislature on Thursday. Some of these adjectives include “extreme,” “absurd,” and “ultra MAGA.”
Under the terms of House Bill 4327, abortions after conception would be legal in the event of rape, incest, or the need to save the life of the mother. According to the bill’s language, the term “human fetus or embryo” refers to a human fetus or embryo at any stage of gestation, beginning with conception and continuing until birth.
Legislation that Republican Governor Kevin Stitt, who will soon take office, will promptly sign into law.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, delivered her criticism of the measure in a statement that was distributed late on Thursday.
According to Jean’s statement, the President “believes that women have the fundamental right to make their own reproductive health decisions” even though the decision in Roe v. Wade “has been the law for almost 50 years and basic justice and the stability of our law demand that it not be altered.” Roe v. Wade “has been the law for almost 50 years and basic fairness and the stability of our law dictate that it not be amended at this time,” said Judge Pierre in the case.
