MSNBC dials up the hysteria over new Fla. abortion law: ‘Black women are going to die’

MSNBC host Katie Phang hysterically went off the deep end Saturday during her show, railing against the Supreme Court over a pending ruling on the abortion pill, calling it a “war on women” and trotting out guests who claimed that a Florida abortion law will cause black women to die.

Phang dedicated several segments to her pro-abortion agenda on “The Katie Phang Show.” Following a recap with NBC’s Chloe Atkins concerning court rulings on the abortion pill mifepristone, Phang launched into her defense of abortion with almost religious zeal.

“All eyes are on the Supreme Court, who is looking at one of, you know, most anticipated abortion-related cases since the overturning of Roe vs. Wade in June,” Atkins noted.

“You know, Chloe,” Phang said, kicking off her tirade, “we kind of predicted, right, that this war on women was going to keep on going forward, and obviously the next battle is the abortion pill.”

Phang previewed one guest coming up later in the show, declaring, “Later, one woman says being pregnant in Florida is like a death sentence. How the state’s abortion rollbacks are putting women’s lives in harm’s way.”

The new Florida law makes a number of exceptions, including those for cases where the mother’s life is endangered. But that was not mentioned in the hyperventilated conversation.

Phang was almost drooling as she interviewed two women from Florida, Anya Cook and Shanae Smith-Cunningham, who were both allegedly diagnosed with life-threatening conditions while pregnant. They claimed that their doctors were afraid to take action and give them abortions due to Governor Ron DeSantis and his restrictive Florida laws.

Dialing up the hysteria, Cook asserted “You are killing us,” referring to Florida politicians who want to ban the abortion pill and restrict unfettered abortion.

“It’s unbelievable,” Shanae Smith-Cunningham told Phang about her experience of being denied an abortion in Florida due to the new laws.

She also spoke with the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Alexis McGill Johnson. Unsurprisingly, she hammered anti-abortion maneuvers as well.

“This is just a crisis of democracy. When you can have one activist conservative judge make a decision like this… that is so politically motivated. That is not grounded in anything but junk science,” the social justice and abortion activist proclaimed.

Phang wrapped up her abortion palooza by speaking with Sen. Shevrin Jones (D-Fla.) who called Florida’s “Heartbeat Protection Act” “government overreach” and declared that “black women are going to die” as a result of the law.

Vice President Kamala Harris called for pro-abortionists to “stand up and fight.” She invoked the Constitution and democracy in a surprise visit to a women’s march in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Meanwhile, more than 250 Democratic lawmakers filed an amicus brief on Friday to request that the Supreme Court issue a full stop to “dangerous” restrictions on access to abortion pills according to The Hill.

All Senate Democrats, except for Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), and 203 out of 213 House Democrats signed their names to support the Biden administration’s appeal for the Supreme Court to uphold the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of mifepristone, one of two approved abortion pills in the country.

Then the media blitz promoting the Democrats’ pro-abortion agenda kicked into high gear with those such as Phang providing wall-to-wall coverage of supposed victims of the new proposed laws.

US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito temporarily blocked lower court rulings that imposed tighter restrictions on the abortion pill mifepristone on Friday, according to CBS News. The key word being “temporarily,” as the justices review the issue.

“Alito, who handles applications for emergency relief from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, granted a request from the Justice Department for an administrative stay, which preserves the status quo as the court considers its request to intervene in the court battle over mifepristone. Limits on how late into a pregnancy the drug can be taken, who can prescribe it, and how it can be dispensed were set to take effect Saturday at 1 a.m.,” CBS News reported.

“Alito’s hold will stay in place until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, and he gave anti-abortion medical associations and physicians who brought the challenge to the FDA’s approval of the drug until noon Tuesday to respond,” the media outlet added.
