Progressive Congressman Sarah Jacobs on the Overthrow of Pelosi, Biden and Rho

The second youngest woman in Congress, Democrat Sara Jacobs of California, is backed by the oldest Speaker of the House, with the oldest president running for reelection. I am happy to see that. Despite the anxieties of her fellow progressives, her work.

Jacobs said house speaker Nancy Pelosi "keeps our corcus together. He says he is one of the few leaders who can. Jacobs is also firmly in the camp of President Biden, she told CBS News chief correspondent Garrett in this week's "takeout" episode.

"Many people have many different opinions. I'm proud to be headed by President Biden now," Jacob said. "I think he's our best chance to maintain the White House in 2024," she told Garrett in San Diego. 

RecentAccording to CBS, presidential approval has fluctuated between 41-44% since the beginning of the year. However, in a news poll, Jacobs believes that Americans will stick to him and her party, despite a national struggle with inflation.

"People are currently experiencing a lot of difficulties and telling me they are very realistic. I can't tell you the fact that prices are high. Gas prices are very high. It's expensive, "said Jacobs. "I also think people understand how difficult it is now. Democrats and President Biden have plans to make things better. Congressional Republicans are extreme and radical without lowering prices. I have a lot of agenda. "

She also has problems with the conservative majority of the Supreme Court, which overturned the Law vs. Wade case last week. Jacobs, 33, protested outside the Supreme Court shortly after the decision was announced. 

"I felt like some radical judges thought they knew better about my health and my body than I did," Jacobs said. Stated. 

She is concerned that the decisions she makes regarding her future childbirth could be threatened in the post-Roe legal environment.

"Last year I frozen my eggs so I could choose when and how I wanted to start a family," Jacobs said. "I think everyone deserves the right to have all the options available to them. It's a little different when it's my health care. Reproductive health care is my health care.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, at least five states have proposed legislation to establish a "fetal personality." This means recognizing that the fetus has the same legal protection as a human. This raises concerns among medical professionals, and these laws apply to procedures involving embryos produced outside the womb, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). May be expanded to allow.

Jacobs states that if personality measures are enacted, outlawing or severely restricting access to abortion could jeopardize IVF or embryonic storage. I'm afraid of that. 

"I froze my eggs so I could choose when it made sense to start a family and have an agent in that decision," Jacobs said. rice field. "And that's the same institution I would expect if I decided it wasn't the right time to start a family."

Jacobs also has a web for menstruation and pregnancy. We sponsor My Body, My Data Act to protect data related to searches or sexually transmitted diseases from the prying eyes of local or state prosecutors. If this bill is passed, companies will not be able to access personal reproductive health data stored in apps and websites unless the user agrees or the company offers a product or service. The bill will also force companies to disclose a privacy policy on how such data is stored.

"Many people use menstruation tracking and fertility tracking apps," Jacobs said. "It tells us when to expect menstruation. For many people with a chronic illness, it can be a really useful tool in how to manage that chronic illness."

Jacobs Need to protect women in places like Texas that motivate civilians to report suspicions of abortion and those who may have assisted in the implementation or acquisition of abortion, as well as banning abortion after 6 weeks. I said there is.

"The Attorney General of Texas can find everyone in Texas who should be pregnant but not pregnant, and easily access, buy, get, and digitalize this data. I'm worried that I might make a decision. Surveillance architecture. "

Pelosi is in favor of the bill, and the White House is in favor, Jacobs said. The bill may be on the house floor in July.

Jewish Jacobs also condemned this week's Supreme Court ruling on the dismissal of a high schoolfootball coach who prayed with the players after the match. The High Court ruled that his prayers were not compulsory and should not be seen as state or government support for religion. 

"The football coach himself wasn't praying," Jacobs said. "He was forcing the players to pray with him after the match. It's very different. I'm a Jew, so I'm a religious minority in this country. I'm public here in San Diego throughout the school. I went to school. I can tell you how important protection I shouldn't have been forced into by the religion of others while I was in public school, and I made that decision. I am very worried about what it means for the separation of the church and the nation. "


  • Right to abortion About "conscientious" Democrats:People say that this is a 50-year right, and that several Supreme Courts, including those primarily appointed by the conservative president, have, for example, in Casey's decision in 1992. Continued to support the right. And (they) didn't believe this was really correct. What is likely to happen. And now that you're here, you're literally talking about being deprived of your rights, so I think it's fundamentally different.
  • Obama, Biden and Abortion:"Looking as a young man, I think we could do more than we did in the first two years, and that's what we keep the majority." I think people took it for granted to keep going. At the same time, just because we had a majority of democracy doesn't mean we had a majority in favor. In fact, 2019 The parliament, which begins in, was the first time we actually had a majority in the chamber .. Not that President Obama, Vice President Biden and Chair Peroshi did not want these things to happen. No. There was a majority of Democrats, but no majority of supporters. "
  • Peroshi leadership of the House Democratic Party:" Democrats throughout the party rally are actually maintained by her. Our party assembly, which understands that we are one of the few who can, together, can keep us moving in the same direction, and when these decisions are made, of all. You can be sure that the perspectives of different stakeholders are taken into account. It goes without saying that we make up the majority of the four. "
  • " Better buildback Outlook: "I think it includes some things about energy. This is very important. I think it also includes some subsidies for reforming the medical insurance system. And that's the tax system. Including reforms, which include something about prescription drug pricing. I think everyone understands the urgency of the moment we are. "
