All things considered, Sharpe had this to say:

“Extremist politicians and judges in Arizona have no plans to halt their attack on our rights – from LGBTQ+ rights to voting rights. Last week’s decision to uphold an outdated and dangerous abortion ban from over 150 years ago is just another sign of how far they’re willing to go. Here in Arizona, we have seen time and time again that when we mobilize our communities to vote, we elect pro-equality, pro-democracy, and pro-choice leaders. We will not allow radical politicians to sabotage our future or our democracy – lives are on the line.”
