As Trump bragged about being “proudly the person responsible” for overturning Roe v. Wade and paving the way for Arizona’s extreme, dangerous 160-year-old abortion ban, women across the state are expressing shock, anger, and terror in anticipation of living under a ban with no exceptions for health, rape, or incest and that could throw doctors in jail.

Watch the reactions of Arizona women whose lives have been upended by Donald Trump below: 

AZ Family – Phoenix, AZ

  • “I have wanted a baby since I can remember.” … “My first initial reaction (to the ruling) was to call my husband at work and tell him … ‘we have to move out of state’ because that’s just my fear. … I’m scared. I’m not just scared for myself, I’m scared for other women.” … 
  • “I worry about, you know, what’s going to happen if I get pregnant again.”

KOLD – Tucson, AZ

  • “I’m old enough that I did this before! I can not believe I’m doing it again. There are so many intended and unintended consequences to this. I am angry.”

  • “I’ve been in this situation, and I’m lucky to be alive. And you want to have children, and when you find out you can’t and you’re in danger – your health is in danger – and I can’t imagine the women that are going to be in situations that can’t get the care they need.”


  • “Directly, I blame Donald Trump for … the recalling of Roe v. Wade. That is what started this, that’s for sure.”  
  • “I blame the Republicans for this.”

  • “You are now having physicians who are scared to do their job that they did without batting an eye before the overturn of Roe.”

CBS News This Morning

  • “It is definitely rallying a lot of people right now for the upcoming votes, but the unfortunate reality is that in the time that it takes for those votes to happen and now, many people will be harmed by the ruling.” 

CBS Evening News

  • “It’s really upsetting that our politicians who are supposed to represent us are doing this.”
