Representative Alexandra Ocasio Cortez was one of the first to respond, retweeting a post explaining how opinion could affect gay rights and writing, “As we’ve warned, Scotus doesn’t just come for abortion.” has been – they are coming for the right to privacy rests on the cry, which includes gay marriage + civil rights.”
“Congress must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade as the law of the land now in this country,” Senator Bernie Sanders said in a post.
Actress Amber Tamblyn wrote, “Tonight our Supreme Court declared war on more than half of its citizens—women and people who give birth everywhere.”
Star Trek actor George Takei was even more stoic, ending his post with “They’ve gone too far.”
As we’ve warned, SCOTUS isn’t just coming for abortion—they’re coming for the right to privacy rests on a cry, which includes gay marriage + civil rights.
Munchkin is stopping Congress from codifying. House has seemingly forgotten about Clarence Thomas. These 2 points should be changed https://t.co/5Isec0osV0

Tonight our Supreme Court declared war on more than half of its citizens—women and people who give birth everywhere. The reversal of Rowe Wade is a political act of violence against us and we will not accept it. We will fight and will not stop. always. https://t.co/K0wuVKXxho

Congress must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade as the law of the land now in this country. And if the Senate doesn’t have 60 votes to do it, and doesn’t, we’ll have to end the filibuster to pass it with 50 votes.

Those motherf*****s really did it. First they came for black voters, then they targeted LGBTQ+ families. Now, the women of America, they’re pitting Roe vs. Wade.
We have to strike back unitedly. Get on the streets Dominate them on the ballot box. They’ve gone too far.

It is a fundamental right for a woman to take her own health decisions. We must defend the right to choose and codify Roe v Wade into law.

SCOTUS’s opinion draft — allowing laws banning abortion in all cases, including rape — reflects Roe, Casey, and a right-wing majority willing to destroy the constitutional right to privacy.
Attacking fundamental rights, they want to introduce Orban-style “conservative democracy”.

PSA: If the cry falls out, your constitutional right to birth control will also be in jeopardy.
It’s never been just about abortion. It’s about controlling and criminalizing our bodies.

If this report turns out to be true, it means that SCOTUS has taken away from women their rights to equality, autonomy and reproductive health.
Last year, the House voted to codify Roe v. Wade. The Senate should end the filibuster and pass this law immediately. https://t.co/p2xfplJ2eH

Reminder: The opinion draft leaked to Politico is not an official decision. Abortion is a right and the law is still the law of the land.
