Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Jen Psaki mocks Texas governor’s pledge to ‘eliminate’ rape amid criticism of abortion ban” – below is their description.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked for her response to Texas governor Greg Abbott’s latest defense of the six-week abortion ban in his state. Abbott pledged to ‘eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas’ when he was asked why rape and incest victims should be forced to carry a pregnancy to term. Psaki said in response: ‘If governor Abbott has a means of eliminating all rapists or all rape from the US then there’d be bipartisan support for that’. She went on to say that no leader in the history of the world has been able to eliminate rape and that is one of the many reasons that women in Texas should have access to safe abortions through their healthcare.
