‘You know, it’s kind of hard for a woman to get pregnant without you guys…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, told a crowd of eighth-grade students outside the Capitol building that their “abortion rights” are under attack.
Speaking at a pro-abortion protest outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Hirono recalled her conversation with visiting middle school students and how she warned them about pro-life legislation that several states have recently passed.
“I just left 60 eighth-graders from a public school in Hawaii, and I told them I was coming to a rally in front of the Supreme Court, and they said, ‘Why?’” Hirono said.
“I said it’s because we are—we have to fight for abortion rights, and they knew all about it.”
The impromptu, unsolicited sex-ed talk with the youngsters came as abortionist groups like Planned Parenthood vowed to fight back politically against the wave of states moving to ban or severely restrict abortions should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn the federal laws that currently guide it.
Hollywood figures such as Alyssa Milano threatened to boycott the state of Georgia for passing a fetal heartbeat bill, and even called on women upset over the legislation to withhold sex in order to punish what they perceived, without evidence, to be a push from male lawmakers.
“I asked the girls in that group of eighth graders: How many of you girls think that government should be telling us, women, when and if we want to have babies, not a single one of them raised their hands,” Hirono continued.
“And then, the boys who were there among the 60—I told them, ‘You know, it’s kind of hard for a woman to get pregnant without you guys,’” she said as the crowd laughed. “They got it.”

“How many of you boys think that government should be telling girls and women when and if we’re going to have babies, and not a single one of them raised their hand,” the senator added.
Hirono said the biggest threat to “women’s rights” is the Supreme Court, especially after President Donald Trump’s recent conservative appointments.
“All the states know what’s at stake,” she said.
After Trump’s most recent nominee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, was accused of a 30-year-old, drunken sexual assault while in high school, Hirono made headlines for her shocking demand that men questioning the uncorroborated account should simply “shut up.”
