Cory Booker Tweets Abortion Rights Should Matter “Because Women are People”

Cory Booker made waves on Twitter with a discussion provoking tweet.

The struggling 2020 candidate tweeted:

Abortion rights shouldn’t matter to men because women are our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends.

They should matter to men—to everyone—because women are people.

Reaction was mixed with some praising Booker and others not as impressed.

Linley replied:

I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.

Bryan G. replied:

And because babies are people.

Gabe replied:

Senator, I respect you a lot and these statements are a great start, but they would mean a lot more if you remembered trans men and nonbinary people need to be included in conversations around reproductive rights, too. Trans men and nonbinary people are also people.

Many responded that babies are people too.
