Florida Representative Matt Gaetz mocked abortion activists in a speech Saturday night.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Rep. Matt Gaetz blasted pro-abortion protesters over their appearance during a speech at the Turning Point Action Summit in Tampa, Florida last weekend.
  • “Have you watched these pro-abortion, pro-murder rallies?” Gaetz said. “The people are just disgusting.”
  • The Florida Representative called the activists overweight and unlikely to need an abortion because of their appearance.
  • “These people are odious on the inside and out,” he said. “They’re like 5’2, 350 pounds and they’re like ‘give me my abortions or I’ll get up and march and protest’ and I’m thinking: ‘March? You look like you got ankles weaker than the legal reasoning behind Roe v. Wade.'”
GAETZ ON PRO-ABORTION ACTIVISTS:

“A few of them need to get up and march. They need to get up and march for like an hour a day, swing those arms, get the blood pumping, maybe mix in a salad.”
