New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has slammed pro-lifers as “radical extremists,” arguing that women have a “right” to abortions up until the day of birth.
Mayor Adams attacked the pro-life movement in a statement on Saturday and vowed he would “fight” to ensure there are “no” limitations on abortion.
“Abortion is health care. It’s that simple,” Adams tweeted, using the hashtag “BansOffOurBodies.”
“And New York City won’t let a group of radical extremists take away health care or any human right without a fight.”

The mayor attended a pro-abortion protest in New York City on Saturday.
He stated that he doesn’t believe there should be any limitations on abortion.
“No I do not,” Adams said when asked at the “Bans Off Our Bodies” demonstration in New York City whether there should be any limitations on abortion.
“I think women should have the right to choose their bodies,” Adams said when pressed again about abortions up until the day of birth.
“Men should not have that right to choose how a woman should treat their body.”
The comments from Adams come as pro-abortion protesters are demonstrating across the country.
The left-wing protests have emerged in response to a leaked Supreme Court opinion suggesting that Roe v. Wade is on the verge of being overturned.
According to recent polling by Fox News, over half of Americans believe that abortion should be prohibited after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
