Nancy Pelosi Has Meltdown Over Supreme Courts Abortion Decision
(UnitedVoice.com) – Democratic politicians across the country were livid when POLITICO released a leaked copy of the first draft of a potential Supreme Court decision of Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization. Even though the opinion was a rough draft and not a final decision, the Left went nuts. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) were among those who had meltdowns.
On Monday, May 2, the two Democratic leaders issued a joint statement condemning the Supreme Court for the draft opinion. They said the Justices are “poised to inflict the greatest restriction of rights” in 50 years. Pelosi and Schumer claimed it wouldn’t just impact women, but would hurt “all Americans.”
If the report is accurate, the Supreme Court is poised to inflict the greatest restriction of rights in the past fifty years – not just on women but on all Americans.

The lawmakers went on to accuse several of the Justices of lying to the US Senate, ripping up the Constitution, and defiling the Court’s reputation. Schumer and Pelosi concluded the Republicans who supported the Justices will “now have to explain themselves to the American people.”
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) used the leak of the draft to call on lawmakers to pack the Supreme Court.
I don’t care how the draft leaked. That’s a sideshow.
What I care about is that a small number of conservative justices, who lied about their plans to the Senate, intend to deprive millions of women of reproductive care.
Codifying Roe isn't enough. We must expand the court.

In other words, the party that claims the current court is too partisan, wants to make it more partisan.
Meanwhile, as mentioned, the leak was of a rough draft, not a final opinion. If the court overturns Roe v. Wade, it means states would have the final say in whether abortion is legal. Further, a right can’t be stripped from anyone if the court rules it wasn’t initially a right.
