(Washington, DC) – [CBN News] The high court heard arguments on Wednesday in a major abortion case about a law that would require Louisiana abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. But the news that stole headlines was the stunning reaction from the Democrats’ top leader in the Senate. (Image: via CBN News)
At a pro-choice rally Wednesday morning, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) publicly threatened two Supreme Court justices for agreeing to consider the Louisiana case. “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh: You have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Schumer threatened. “You won’t know what hit you!”
Despite Schumer’s threatening language, the case isn’t exactly about overturning abortion. Supporters say the law is about ensuring the safety of women who are having abortions.
But since Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court has consistently ruled states can’t put an undue burden on women getting an abortion. Pro-choice opponents of the Louisiana law argue that’s exactly what it does.
