“The Supreme Court burned all the legitimacy they still had,” in a ruling last week that Roe v. Wade, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Sunday.
“They just took it away and put it on the torch,” Democrat Warren told ABC Martha Raddatz, co-founder of This Week. “I think we need to gain the trust of our court, and that means we need a lot of judges in the United States Supreme Court. We’ve already done it, we have to do it again. ”
In Friday’s ruling, the High Court overturned Roe’s milestone instead of ruling that there was no constitutional guarantee of access to abortion. Judges voted five to four for Roe’s release and six to three for the Mississippi abortion ban after 15 weeks of pregnancy, in the basic case in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
The coup was widely circulated by lawmakers and abortion advocates, but sparked protests across the country and was condemned by Warren and other leading Democrats.
At least eight states have banned abortion in the days since the decision, and a total of 26 states are expected to ban or severely restrict abortion in the coming weeks, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
