Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) voiced his opposition to the leaked Supreme Court opinion draft on abortion. While speaking on the Senate floor on Tuesday, he condemned the conservative majority on the high court over speculation it could overturn Roe v. Wade.
“The Republican appointed justice reported votes to overturn Roe v. Wade will go down as an abomination,” Schumer stated. “One of the worst, most damning decisions in modern history.”
He then suggested Democrats could try and pack the Supreme Court if they keep control of the upper chamber after the November midterms. Schumer warned expanding the court and appointing more liberal justices is a possibility.
