On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 pro-abortion Roe v. Wade decision, sending the abortion question back to the states. But some leftists could not stomach the news that the abortion issue would go back to the individual states. Here are the most triggered reactions to the decision:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
The socialist congresswoman joined far-left pro-abortion protesters to chant for Americans to take to “the streets” to protest the decision.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
The far-left California congresswoman angrily told reporters, “The hell with the Supreme Court. We will defy them!”
Maxine Waters tells people to “fight,” “the hell with the Supreme Court! We will defy them!"
"You ain't seen nothin' yet."
Didn’t they impeach Trump for this?

The anti-gun activist wrote on Twitter, “I’m mad as hell and I’m ready to protest. Let’s do something.”
I'm mad as hell and I'm ready to protest.
Let’s do something.

The American Civil Liberties Union admitted the defeat of Roe v. Wade is “a horrible moment” for their pro-abortion agenda.
BREAKING: The Supreme Court just reversed nearly 50 years of precedent and overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the federal constitutional right to abortion.
We won't deny what a horrible moment this is.
Half of the states are expected to ban abortion.

Navarro argued for the killing of disabled people through abortions.
This is disgusting @ananavarro. Arguing for abortion of handicapped people, people with Down syndrome & autism because it’s more convenient for *YOU*?! This isn’t even selfishness, it’s evil. Those precious people have the same value as you & me.pic.twitter.com/iDMSKho0of

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA)
Speier told pro-abortion activists to “armor up” in preparation for “war.”
Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier calls on pro-abortion activists to "armor up" because "there's a war out there."
Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley agrees: "That's right. This is not a drill." pic.twitter.com/y67rTQ5j9f

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
The socialist senator demanded Democrats end the filibuster in the Senate to pass radical pro-abortion bills on the national level.
Overturning Roe v. Wade and denying women the right to control their own bodies is an outrage and in defiance of what the American people want. Democrats must now end the filibuster in the Senate, codify Roe v. Wade, and once again make abortion legal and safe.
