New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) joined the chorus of Democrat leaders traumatized by the possibility that the Supreme Court might overturn Roe v. Wade, concluding on Monday night that it would be nothing less than an “assault” on the freedom of women at the hands of “right wing extremists.”
“New York City knows that a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions is hers and hers alone. This potential assault on their freedom by right wing extremists cannot stand,” the Democrat mayor said, announcing that he and his party are “ready to fight like hell.”
His reaction followed Politico’s publication of a possible draft Supreme Court opinion overruling Roe v. Wade. The opinion, reportedly penned by Justice Samuel Alito, concludes that the 1973 decision “must be overruled.” The opinion concludes that the Constitution, as originally understood, does not include a right to abortion, kicking the decision back to the states.
The leak appears to be part of an intimidation tactic to bully one or more of the justices to change their initial position on the case. As a result, the Left is having a meltdown and is calling for the abolition of the filibuster and the packing of the Supreme Court with more justices.
