This week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not mince words when she labeled the Supreme Court an “extremist” organization that is punishing the American people after their Roe decision on Friday.
“While this extremist Supreme Court works to punish and control the American people, Democrats must continue our fight to expand freedom in America,” Pelosi wrote in her release to her Democrat colleagues.
Last Friday after the Supreme Court announcement, Pelosi made a scathing statement about the landmark decision.
She also accused Republicans of pushing for a nationwide abortion ban. Watch.
“Today, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has achieved the GOP’s dark and extreme goal of ripping away women’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions. Because of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, the Republican Party and their supermajority on the Supreme Court, American women today have less freedom than their mothers.” Pelosi said on Friday.
“With Roe now out of their way, radical Republicans are charging ahead with their crusade to criminalize health freedom. In the Congress, Republicans are plotting a nationwide abortion ban. In the states, Republicans want to arrest doctors for offering reproductive care and women for terminating a pregnancy.” she said.
Pelosi used it to attack the Supreme Court branch saying, “No, I don’t respect a process that criminalizes a women’s right to her reproductive freedom.”
The language from the left has made it clear that they intend to turn up the heat coming into the midterm elections. They think the Supreme Court ruling can be used to galvanize their base. They are wrong. Will you be voting Republican or Democrat? Let us know!
