Hello there. How are you? Very good. Love the audience. Yes. Great group. Senator, we've been talking all week about the Alabama abortion ban signed into law Wednesday. There seems to be a big push in many parts of the country to get strict abortion laws on the books. How concerned are you about the possibility of overthrowing roe V. Wade? Extremely concerned.

For me I understand what they're saying. Democrats look like they've gone extreme. It's having a conversation of late term abortion up to until birth. Are you for late term abortion or the moments talked about where you would keep a woman comfortable after she gave birth? I don't know all his comments. It got a lot of publicity.
