He said: “Here we go again an uniformed liberal that would murder a child. Blaming Greg Abbott for something he has no control over. She doesn’t seem to understand that the power grid is owned and operated by private companies.”

Her video received over 1,200 comments, with one user writing: “I WISH I could like this 582917489 times.”

Others joked about Williams’ spelling: “UNIFORMED!?? PLEAAASSEEE.”
In a follow-up video posted today, Julianna said she wanted to highlight that, when it comes to discussing the new abortion legislation in Texas, a lot of people don’t realise who it will disproportionately affect – people of colour.
Those from low-income backgrounds who don’t have the resources to travel to obtain an abortion will also bear the brunt of the new law, she said.
In a statement, Planned Parenthood president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson said the new law is a “travesty” for nearly seven million women of reproductive age.
McGill Johnson said: “The impact of this heinous abortion ban cannot be understated, overwhelmingly harming Black and Latinx people, people with low incomes, and people in rural areas, who already face immense barriers to health care access. This is the loudest alarm yet that abortion rights are in grave danger, in Texas and across the country.”
