MATT WALSH (HOST): Overturning Roe is a great and necessary first step, and something to certainly celebrate, but it's only a first step, as far as I'm concerned. The next step is to abolish abortion and criminalize it nationwide. The next step is to essentially do what idiot leftists think is already happening. They think that overturning Roe v. Wade means that abortion is abolished nationwide. That's not what it means. But that's what they're worried about, and that's actually what we should try to do.
As always with the left, I take a, you know, I'll give you something to cry about approach with the left. You're going to cry about it? Then, you know, I'll give you something to cry about. Let's go ahead and criminalize it nationwide. And that is the next fight and Republicans have to lean into it. Because the die is cast. The greatest cultural battle of our lives doesn't end now, it begins.
Democrats are going to do everything in their power, and everything not in their power, to usurp the Supreme Court decision and ensure that babies continue to die at the same rate or at a higher rate than before. Republicans must respond not by declaring victory and just washing their hands of the issue, not by hiding from it, but by pushing back in the other direction. They, the Democrats, want to codify abortion nationwide. We have to push to criminalize it. There's no escaping the fight now. You're either with us or against us on this. And that goes for every elected Republican.
