Jill Biden hosted a group of pro-abortion activists at the White House on Tuesday with the purpose to emphasize that abortions are a form of healthcare. This meeting was part of a series of events organized by the Bidens and Vice President Kamala Harris throughout the week to recognize the one-year anniversary of the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling, which has already been credited with saving the lives of tens of thousands of babies. Since the ruling, individual states have been given the authority to determine their own abortion policies, leading to the implementation of abortion bans in 18 states, including the home states of the guests invited by Biden.

Biden made some extremely concerning remarks during the event. She stated:

“The consequences of these bans go far beyond the right to choose,” she said. “… Far, far too many women are experiencing devastating consequences to their health, their fertility and their lives.”

“I know that it isn’t easy to relive what you’ve already gone through, but stories like yours are how we shed light on the cruel and devastating consequences of those bans.”

One of the women invited to the White House,  Anya Cook of Florida, spoke out against the 15-week abortion ban in her state:

“We don’t know if I can get pregnant now or carry to birth, but the target of our wrath is very well-known: It’s the people who have taken our human rights to health and liberty and personal autonomy,” Cook said. “Someone needs to fight back against these insidious laws in states across the country.”

Estimates state that the Dobbs ruling has already saved over 25,000 lives of unborn babies.
