Closing abortion clinics represents a “clear and existential threat” facing the country, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) declared at Tuesday night’s Democrat presidential debate in Westerville, Ohio.

Appearing onstage at Otterbein University, Booker began by condemning the closing of two Ohio Planned Parenthood centers:


“I'm having Deja Vu all over again, because we are having another health care debate and we're not talking about the clear and existential threat in America - that we are in a state (Ohio) that has had two Planned Parenthoods closed. We are seeing, all over this country, women's reproductive rights under attack. And, God bless (Senator) Kamala (Harris, D-Calif.).

“Women should not be the only ones taking up this cause and this fight. It's not just because women are our daughters and our friends and our wives. It's because women are people, and people deserve to control their own bodies.”
