Democrats in the Senate are now threatening to add judges to the Supreme Court if it decides to strike a blow against Roe when it finally issues a ruling regarding abortion restrictions in Mississippi.

As The Hill reports:


The Supreme Court’s conservative majority this week agreed to hear the Mississippi case, which could dramatically narrow abortion rights by allowing states to make it illegal to get an abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

“It will inevitably fuel and drive an effort to expand the Supreme Court if this activist majority betrays fundamental constitutional principles,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“We’ve got a whole array of options we’re looking at in the courts committee,” he said of the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States, which President Biden established by executive order in April.

Whitehouse said even if there isn’t enough support for expanding the Supreme Court by four seats, which is a proposal that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) introduced last month, other reforms could be pursued.

While the Democrats have always welcomed Supreme Court decisions that go in their favor, when the shoe is on the other foot it seems they will stop at nothing, including shredding the constitution,  in order to further their own ends.

Does this constitute a threat of insurrection intended to influence the justices’ decisions? I believe that any party to this threat is guilty of greater insurrection than the Jan 6th demonstrators.

I think they should ‘pack the court’, so 200th trimester abortions can be conducted against congress.
