A sitting member of congress calls for open defiance of the Supreme Court

    First we saw Church Schumer publicly call out specific justices if they voted against what he wanted in ROE.

    and now we have a Democratic member of Congress openly calling for defiance of the Court Ruling.

    “Women are going to control their bodies no matter how they try and stop us,” Waters told journalists at the Court. “The hell with the Supreme Court—we will defy them.

    Please note: The quote is well within forum guidelines:
    • Quotes in the linked article containing profanity will be from public figures such as political leaders, and not in the commentary by the author of the article or a non-public figure.
    It is a direct quote from a political leader.

    Here is my point. The Court is the final authority on laws. What gives these Democratic Leaders the right to first threaten the Justices and then call for open defiance of law?

    Do you support them?

    Yes.

    Women should do what’s best for them in this situation, not what an unelected panel of lawyers decides is best for them.

    Are you advocating for breaking laws then? Is that what you suggest we do when we don't agree with the Supreme Court?

    I’m advocating women do what they feel is best for them. What part of that did you not understand?

    Where is that legal? Who is the authority then? The Supreme Court or the individual?

    Are you supporting defying the Supreme Court as Maxine Waters is saying?

    The laws of the individual states that ban abortions - or is Maxine speaking of something else?

    Are you saying it's ok to break the law if someone feels like it's best for them?

    Thanks for the Pelosi quote, but it still doesn't justify anything.

    Then you don't agree with Maxine Waters about the law?

    If you are a declared member of the Evil Empire, you will not be stopped by one stand for good, but instead need persistence to stop your evil ways. Those who support abortion will drop back to the states and fight to stop state laws that ban abortion.

    If you claim to be on the side of good, you are held to a higher standard than those who stand for evil. That's how it works.

    The Supreme Court didn't create any law with their decision. I have no idea how Waters intends to "defy" the SC in this case. Doesn't make much sense.
