Cory Booker: Alabama Abortion Law "An Assault On Human Rights"; Men Should Stand With Women


Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker slams a new Alabama law that effectively bans abortion and calls on Trump Attorney General Bill Barr to resign and lays out his gun control agenda. In an interview with MSNBC's Ari Melber, Booker called on men to "lead" on the issue of abortion "with women, because this is an assault on human rights."

"It's important for men to lead on this issue with women because this is an assault on human rights," Booker said Wednesday. "This is an assault on a basic fundamental ideal that you can control your own body. And we know from Alabama's 'Letters From A Birmingham Jail' by Martin Luther King very pointedly that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

"All men we need to lead on this issue with women and demand that people get off the sidelines," he said. "This is an existential fight for the right and liberty to control your own body, your economic freedom, to be able to make your own reproductive choices."
