Dem Senator Threatens ‘Revolution’ If Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade

'I had friends in college who were forced to seek dangerous back-alley abortions because women across the country were denied access to critical family planning services...'

A Democrat senator threatened this week that there will be a “revolution” if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., said during a virtual event that the Supreme Court justices ought to listen to the “young people” who want abortion access to be expanded.

“I hope the Supreme Court is listening to the people of the United States because … I think if you want to see a revolution, go ahead, outlaw Roe v. Wade and see what the response is of the public, particularly young people,” she said. “Because I think that will not be acceptable to young women or young men.”

Her comments come as the Supreme Court prepares to hear oral arguments for an abortion case, Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, that pro-life conservatives hope will result in the overturning of prior abortion precedent outlined in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

“I’ve lived the consequences of the pre-Roe era,” Shaheen said. “I had friends in college who were forced to seek dangerous back-alley abortions because women across the country were denied access to critical family planning services.”

Several other Democratic politicians have threatened “negative consequences,” including court-packing, if the Supreme Court rules against Roe v. Wade

“Chipping away at Roe v. Wade will precipitate a seismic movement to reform the Supreme Court” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said earlier this year. “It may not be expanding the Supreme Court, it may be making changes to its jurisdiction, or requiring a certain numbers of votes to strike down certain past precedents.”

“It will inevitably fuel and drive an effort to expand the Supreme Court if this activist majority betrays fundamental constitutional principles,” he continued. “It’s already driving that movement.”
