Multiple far-left Democrats in Congress are threatening the Supreme Court justices if they overturn Roe v. Wade with the case they have just agreed to take up from Mississippi.
According to Life News:
“Chipping away at Roe v. Wade will precipitate a seismic movement to reform the Supreme Court,” Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal told The Hill on Monday. The Supreme Court announced on May 17 that it would hear the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which addresses Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks.
Upholding the Mississippi law “will inevitably fuel and drive an effort to expand the Supreme Court if this activist majority betrays fundamental constitutional principles,” Blumenthal continued.
The Connecticut Democrat has repeatedly changed his mind on court-packing, saying that “nothing is off the table” when Republicans confirmed Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court in October 2020. He said on May 18 that Democrats should only “approach the issue of expanding the Court with extreme caution.”
Democratic Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who often advocates court-packing, said that Democrats have “a whole array of options we’re looking at in the courts committee” if the Supreme Court upholds the Mississippi law.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (R-NY), a co-sponsor of the court-packing bill, said that the Supreme Court’s consideration of the Mississippi abortion case “further shows the need” for court-packing.
