When is protecting a baby from being brutally killed in an abortion an assault on women? When you’re White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

As LifeNews reported, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has signed a bill to ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heart begins beating.

The Texas Heartbeat Act will abolish elective abortions as early as six weeks, when the preborn child’s heartbeat is detectable using methods according to standard medical practice. The policy would take effect on September 1, 2021.

Abbot said the bill, “… ensures that the life of every unborn child who has a heartbeat will be saved from the ravages of abortion.”

But today, during her press conference, Psaki used pro-abortion terms to describe the pro-life law.

“This is the most restrictive measure yet in the nation, and the most restrictive, recent assault on women’s fundamental rights under Roe v. Wade and critical rights continue to come under weathering and extreme attack around the country,” Psaki said. “But certainly the president supports and believes we should codify Roe v. Wade. And that is his view regardless of these backward-looking steps that are being taken states it’s by states.”

Psaki added that “The president and vice president are devoted to ensuring that every American has access to health care now more than ever.” She said that includes protecting women’s fundamental rights, including by codifying Roe v. Wade.

Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz responded: “The Biden administration has made clear they want to wage war on Pro-Life states. If that’s your plan, Joe Biden, don’t mess with Texas!”

Only in Psaki’s world could a bill to stops the killing of little baby girls be called an assault on women. The only assault on women is abortion, which kills baby girls (and boys) and injures their mothers.
