Senator Jeanne Shaheen Threatens Revolution if Roe Overturned

( Just days before the Supreme Court began oral arguments on a case involving Mississippi’s abortion law, New Hampshire Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen vowed that a “revolution” will take place if SCOTUS overturns Roe v. Wade.

During a virtual event featuring New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation on Monday, WMUR reporter Adam Sexton asked if the public abortion debate has “muted” as most people in America only know life post-Roe v. Wade.

Senator Shaheen suggested that there would be nothing muted about the reaction to the Supreme Court overturning Roe. Issuing a warning to the Court, Shaheen said “if you want to see a revolution, go ahead, outlaw Roe v. Wade” and see what happens.

Shaheen believes that young people in particular will revolt if Roe is overturned.

How stupid is this woman that she thinks the SCOTUS can “outlaw” Roe v. Wade? The Supreme Court doesn’t “outlaw” anything. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, all that changes is abortion laws will be determined by the duly-elected legislators in each state. In short, it puts the issue back into the hands of voters rather than the hands of nine unelected justices.

Then Shaheen launched into the fearmongering over “back-alley abortions,” claiming she had friends in college who went to these back alleys because all across the country women were “denied access to critical family planning services.”

She accused Republicans of trying to “turn back the clock on women’s reproductive health and rights,” arguing that this is what the Mississippi law seeks to do.

What a drama queen.

The argument that Roe can’t be overturned because the Court must never overturn “precedent” is ridiculous. If this were the case, the Dred Scott ruling of “separate but equal” would still exist today.

On Wednesday, oral arguments began on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health which centers on Mississippi’s law banning abortion after 15 weeks.

Wednesday evening on the Federalist Radio Hour, Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino, the President of the Judicial Crisis Network, discussed the day’s oral arguments and the implications the Dobbs case will have on abortion and Roe v. Wade. Unlike Jeanne Sheheen’s insane emotional histrionics, Hemingway and Severino provide reasoned and thoughtful commentary.
