U.S. Representative Mary Miller of Illinois recently spoke at a rally with former President Donald Trump.
During her speech, she talked about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the landmark Roe V. Wade decision, saying it was a “victory for white life.” The viral clip has sparked much backlash, as many states are individually dealing with the next steps regarding abortion rights. Miller said:
“President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday.”
A spokesperson for Miller went on to say she intended to say “right to life.” The spokesperson continued, “You can clearly see in the video … she’s looking at her papers and looking at her speech.” They then referred to her statement as a “mix-up of words.”
