Pelosi stated that in her dealings with Republicans in Congress over the years, she has seen the groundwork for this tide turning. Party representatives have opposed any family planning measure, domestic or global, she said. “I have always said that their terminating of a pregnancy is just their opening act, just their front game,” Pelosi cautioned.

“A lot of these institutions were built on a very creaky foundation,” Ocasio-Cortez told protesters. “So what that means is when you build it back, you have to build it stronger than before... Right now, elections are not enough.”
