US First Lady Jill Biden, in Tucson on Saturday, blasted Republican efforts to restrict abortion in a speech that was punctuated by protests over US support of Israel’s military campaign in the Gaza Strip, Report informs via USA Today.

Biden’s speech in Arizona was the second stop in a tour geared towards rallying women voters around her husband, President Joe Biden.

“It’s no accident that Arizona is one of the places we’ve chosen to stop during our launch for ‘Women for Biden’ this weekend. Because four years ago, Arizona, you put us in the White House,” she told the crowd of mostly women at the Fox Tucson Theatre.

Suburban women were a core part of the coalition that helped Democrats take the White House in 2020. The overturning of the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade in 2022 has galvanized many voters, and particularly women, to turn out in support of Democrats, and is thought to be a key factor driving Democratic wins in elections since that decision.

Over the course of the 15-minute-long speech, Biden was interrupted four times by protesters critical of her husband’s handling of the latest wave of hostilities between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. Israel’s military campaign into Gaza, waged in response to Hamas’ Oct. 7 attacks, has drawn outcry from progressives within the US over its steep humanitarian toll.

Continuing the pointed tone from her first campaign stop in Atlanta, Georgia, Biden took direct aim at her husband’s expected opponent in the general election, former President Donald Trump. Biden portrayed Trump as disrespectful toward women and highlighted his support for abortion restrictions.

“Donald Trump has spent a lifetime tearing us down and devaluing our existence. He mocks women’s bodies, disrespects our accomplishments, and brags about assault,” Biden said. “Now he’s bragging about killing Roe v. Wade.”

Trump last week said he is considering supporting a limit on abortion at 15 weeks into a pregnancy, which is toward the beginning of the second trimester.

“Donald Trump is dangerous to women and to our families. We simply cannot let him win,” Biden continued. “When our bodies are on the line, when our daughters’ futures are at stake, when our country and its freedom hang in the balance, we are immovable and unstoppable.”
