(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Radical Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal revealed her ignorance of the American justice system, claiming that the Supreme Court could not alter the Roe v. Wade decision because it is a law, the Daily Caller reported.
Unfortunately for Jayapal, Congress passes laws, not the Court.
In a recent appearance on CNN, Jayapal openly lamented the idea that the Supreme Court could overturn a decision made by a previous Supreme Court.
“This is a stunning, stunning rebuke of precedent and of the fundamental freedom women have to make choices about our own bodies, our own futures and our own economic security and the thing is, these justices are acting like this is somehow something they have the right to change,” she said.
According to Jayapal, because the legal precedent was set five decades ago the Court cannot determine the Constitutionality of a prior decision.
“They do not have the right to change this, which has been settled law for two generations now of people who have grown up, have gone through their twenties, in firm belief that they can make these decisions about their own bodies.”
She also suggested that the people of the country must not accept the decision of the Court regarding the Constitutionality of the initial Roe decision.
“The only thing that has changed is the makeup of the Supreme Court, the radicalization of the Supreme Court and if they can do this for this issue, it means they can ignore precedent for every other issue we’ve considered settled law,” Jayapal rambled.
“So we cannot accept it. I don’t think people across this country are going to accept it.”
Jayapal concluded by implicitly admitting her wrongness, suggesting that the infamous Court decision is not actually a law, but rather that laws must come from Congress.
“We now have to work extra hard to codify Roe v. Wade in the United States Congress,” she added.
