WATCH: Mika Brzezinski Absolutely Demolishes Texas AG Ken Paxton

Republicans claim to be pro-life, but they sure don't seem to care about the lives of expectant mothers, especially those whose lives are put at risk by pregnancies. 

A woman in Texas, Kate Cox, is carrying a baby who will not survive. And continuing to carry that child is putting Cox's wife at risk. But Ken Paxton, the attorney general of Texas, is fighting against her ability to get a medical abortion. Mika Brzezinski took the AG to task on Monday's edition of Morning Joe. 

"This is an unsettling and all-too-common story," the co-host began. "Once again, an aging, white man facing indictments is accused of covering up an affair, faced impeachment, and still his wrecking ball use of political power continues with brutal consequences on the lives of women."

Brzezinski continued, "Paxton is so desperate to mimic Trump, so desperate for Trump's support, that he led a lawsuit in 2020 to challenge the results of that year's election in Trump's favor."

The host closed:

"We need to wake the hell up. This country has lost so much already. Women have lost so much. Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, a man or a woman, please look at the face of this moment in time. Kate Cox could be your daughter, your sister, your wife, you. Kate Cox is 31 and needs an abortion. Her physically and emotional well-being is in peril."
