Hochul called it a “Texas travesty.”

“I guarantee I did not know I was pregnant with my first child at six weeks. I actually went on a white water rafting trip, it turns out, at three months, because I didn’t know I was pregnant,” she said. “That is the reality of real people. We don’t always know. So you’re denied the choice that should be yours as a woman.”
