  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ comments are causing outrage following the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court 
  • Video resurfaced online of Sanders stating in her victory speech that she will ‘make sure when a kid is in the womb, they are as safe as in the classroom’
  • Her comments were made the same day 19 children were killed a Texas school
  • The remarks have been described as ‘tone-deaf’ and ‘disgusting’ as thousands of people continue to protest across the country for abortion rights

Sarah Huckabee Sanders sparked outrage for saying that she ‘will make sure when a kid is in the womb, they are as safe as in the classroom’ hours after on the same day of the Uvalde massacre during her victory speech for the Arkansas gubernatorial primary last month. 

The Arkansas gubernatorial candidate made the shocking comment in her speech last month after winning the GOP primary, the same day 19 children and two teachers were gunned down at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas

Sanders had also referred to the shootings, calling the horrific crime a ‘stark and humbling reminder of just how precious life is.’

Her remarks that were replayed in a resurfaced video that was posted just days after Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, have been described as ‘tone-deaf’ and ‘disgusting’ as thousands of people continue to protest across the country for abortion rights.

 ‘We will make sure that when a kid is in the womb, they’re as safe as they are in a classroom, the workplace, a nursing home—because every stage of life has value, no one greater than the other,’ Sanders says in the speech shown in a video clip recently shared on Twitter. 

Social media users called Sanders out for her ‘hypocrisy’ and urged the people of Arkansas to not fall for her rhetoric and remember her comments at election time.

‘Over 200 mass shootings in America this year. More than 2 dozen school shootings. 19 dead kids in Uvalde. Guns are the leading cause of death of kids in America,’ tweeted political commentator Wajahat Ali.

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was a victim of the 2018 Parkland shooting, called Sanders out on Twitter. 

‘My daughter was murdered in her classroom. When @SarahHuckabee says ‘We will make sure that when a kid is in the womb, they’re as safe as they are in a classroom’ I take notice. Sarah, your bullshit is deadly to kids when they are born.’

Last Friday, Sanders praised the Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, calling it ‘a day so many of us have prayed for and worked towards’ for decades.

‘I am thankful for the brave resolve of the six justices who—while receiving death threats and extreme political pressure—did what is right: defending the lives of the most innocent and vulnerable,’ Sanders tweeted.
