  • Rep. Matt Gaetz has been characterizing abortion rights protestors as ugly and physically grotesque.
  • Now, even the president of a major anti-abortion group says his comments are "hideous."

"I think we've proven that.

And the president of a major anti-abortion group, Marjorie Dannenfelser, has had enough of it.

"SHAME on @mattgaetz for this hideous comment," she wrote on Twitter on Monday, linking to a video of the Republican congressman's Saturday appearance at Turning Point Action's Student Action Summit in Florida.

"Why is that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?" Gaetz asked the audience. "Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb."

Gaetz, currently the subject of a federal sex-trafficking investigation, characterized abortion rights protestors as "5-foot-2 and 350 pounds."

"I'm thinking, march? You look like you've got ankles weaker than the legal reasoning behind Roe V. Wade," Gaetz said.

Gaetz's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Last month, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a 6-3 decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case, revoking the right to an abortion at the federal level.

Jordan praised Kevin McCarthy for rejecting Biden-backed bipartisan bills and stated that the GOP leader was "on the side of the American people."From last year's $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package to a recent $52 billion chips-funding bill, the administration has notched some major successes in attracting support from Democrats and Republicans and breaking part of the filibuster logjam that has become an all-too-common form of blocking legislation in recent years.
