MSNBC contributor Joy Reid said efforts to prevent abortion past twenty weeks are not “pro-life” but “forced birth” with Martin Bashir on Tuesday.

After discussing comments from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) — Reid saying she is “frightened” that the representative is an OB/GYN that treats women — Reid said:

“It’s so disconnected from the political reality that Republicans face. Republicans face a tremendous deficit with women voters, and so they keep putting on this spectacle over and over and over again…

“They’re obsessed with this idea of making women — this isn’t pro-life; this is forced birth. They are obsessed with this notion of shaming, compelling, coercing, whatever they have to do to make women give birth.

“It’s bizarre, but it is what they are about. Most of the legislation that these members of the House of Representatives — mostly all men — have put forward have been about abortion.” [Emphasis added]
