Booker: Alabama Anti-Abortion Law ‘Assault on Human Dignity’

On MSNBC’s The Beat, Sen. Cory Booker said the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, which bans nearly all abortions, was an “assault on human rights.”

“This is an assault on human rights. This is an assault on basic fundamental ideal that you can control your own body,” Booker said on Wednesday.

“It is an assault on human rights, human dignity, freedom to control your body, which has been a fight going on from the founding of this country. I cannot in any way sit comfortably while this is going on. And this is a time in American history that mandates all of us to stand up and get involved in this fight,” he added.
