Pa. State Rep. Joanna McClinton Channels Our Collective Rage Over Reproductive Rights

Joanna McClinton lets loose on reproductive rights.

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade, we’ve been plunged into fear, helplessness, and rage over the unjust ruling. And while people have taken to the streets to protest and donated money to abortion rights organizations, we can’t help but feel betrayed by the lack of response from democrats in power. Leaders like Vice President Kamala Harris have offered little in the way beyond “just vote” and every rank and file democrat has used the opportunity to fundraise. And while Joe Biden recently announced a series of executive orders to protect abortion access, there is much more that democrats could be doing instead of shrugging their shoulders and asking us for $ 5.

But finally, one politician is bringing the rage and fire we’re all feeling to the floor. Meet Pennsylvania’s Democratic House Minority Leader Rep. Joanna McClinton, who unleashed a righteous tirade against her Republican colleagues for stripping women of bodily autonomy and then passing laws making it harder to vote. In a passionate address to the House, McClinton said, “We’re talking about women dying. We’re talking about half the population not being able to make decisions when not even half of this body has a uterus.”
