(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Flanked by his fellow Senate Democrats outside the United States Capitol in Washington, DC, Senate Majority Leader Check Schumer just hit the panic button in front of television cameras over the leaked draft of a possible opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that would have the United States Supreme Court overruling Roe v. Wade after 50 years.
As part of his speech, Schumer slammed what he called right-wing Republicans and alleged that they want more than to just outlaw abortion.
You can watch the video of Schumer further down this post.
According to Schumer:
In light of this potential ruling, I want to make three things very clear.
First, it is our intention for the Senate to hold a vote on legislation to codify the right to an abortion in law.
Second, a vote on this legislation is no longer an abstract exercise. This is as urgent and as real as it gets. We will vote to protect a women’s right to choose. And every American is going to see which side every Senator stands on.
Third, to the American people, I say this: The elections this November will have consequences because the rights of a hundred million women are now on the ballot.
To help fight this court’s awful decision, I urge every American to make their voices heard this week and this year.
Call your members. Write them. Call your Senators. Write them. Email them. Text them. And most of all, cast your ballots this November.
Because if Roe v. Wade is overturned, we have to assume there’s more to come. The question is: What will these Republicans, these right-wing Republicans, target next?
