New York City Mayor Eric Adams slammed the pro-life movement as “radical” on Saturday and pledged that he would “fight” to ensure there are “no” limitations on abortion.
“Abortion is health care. It’s that simple. And New York City won’t let a group of radical extremists take away health care or any human right without a fight,” Adams tweeted Saturday using the hashtag “BansOffOurBodies.”
Adams attended a pro-choice protest in New York City on Saturday and said that he doesn’t believe there should be any limitations on abortion.
“No I do not,” Adams said when asked at the “Bans Off Our Bodies” demonstration in New York City whether there should be any limitations on abortion.
“I think women should have the right to choose their bodies,” Adams said when pressed again about abortions up until the day of birth. “Men should not have that right to choose how a woman should treat their body.”
The comments from Adams come as pro-choice protesters are demonstrating across the country in response to a leaked Supreme Court opinion suggesting that Roe v. Wade is on the verge of being struck down.
Recent Fox News polling shows that over half of Americans believe that abortion should be prohibited after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
