(LifeSiteNews) – In an hour-long Instagram video, pro-abortion Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ranted against “fundamentalist Christians” who oppose killing babies via abortion.

The pro-abortion movement has become increasingly angry since Justice Samuel Alito’s majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked. The U.S. Supreme Court confirmed the authenticity of the leaked draft, which the court said is not necessarily its “final position.”

On May 19, Ocasio-Cortez embodied this anger during her hourlong rant against the pro-life movement in an Instagram video.

“No person, no man, no person can take your body, can ethically take your body and use it how they want without your consent, and that is exactly what Republicans are doing right now,” she said. “They are taking women’s bodies and forcing themselves on women’s bodies.”

During every successful abortion, an abortionist’s lethal tools are forced on a preborn child’s body without his or her consent.

“Forcing their opinions. Forcing their perspective on women’s bodies without their consent,” she raged. “They are violating not just women, but trans people and non-binary people in this country.”

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

“They are forcing themselves on our bodies without our consent, and they’re trying to legislate that in the law, and that is honestly the similarity between rape culture and these horrifying anti-choice, forced-birth laws. Direct through-line,” she continued.

She revealed that, following sexual assault, she feared that she was pregnant, but “at least had a choice” to abort a hypothetical child if she desired.

Cortez denounced “fundamentalist Christians” opposing abortion as “theocratic” and “authoritarian” and mocked pro-lifers who condemn abortion who say “you’re harming a life” and “I believe this is life.”

“Well, some religions don’t. So how ’bout that? … Jewish brothers and sisters … are able to have an abortion according to their faith,” she claimed, despite the fact that many Jews are pro-life. Orthodox Jewish Rabbi Yehuda Levin of New York recently said it’s “blasphemous” to call abortion access a “Jewish value.”

“You know, there are so many faiths that do not have the same definition of life as fundamentalist Christians,” Cortez continued. “And so what about their rights? What about their right[s] to exercise their faith? It’s ridiculous. And it is theocratic, it’s authoritarian — it is wrong.”

Many pro-lifers oppose abortion not on religious grounds but because the science of embryology demonstrates that an unborn child is a whole, distinct, living human being and they believe all humans are worthy of basic rights, the first and most foundational one being the right to not be unjustly killed.
