Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Mondaire Jones (D-NY) called on Democrat Party leaders to remove the Supreme Court's ability to adjudicate on matters related to abortion.
A letter signed by the two Representatives demanded that the Supreme Court be prevented from ruling on issues like abortion, contraception, same-sex marriage, and other social issues.
The letter read, "We write to urge your support for restricting the Supreme Court's appellate jurisdiction in the areas of abortion, marriage equality, non-procreative intimacy, and contraception. In doing so, we can ensure that, as Congress takes legislative action to codify each of these fundamental rights, a radical, restless, and newly constituted majority on the Court cannot further undermine the protections we would enact."
Democrats are attempting to prevent the Supreme Court from issuing any more groundbreaking rulings as the Court has a conservative majority. Such an action runs counter to the mission of the Supreme Court, as its entire purpose is to be the final say on controversial legal issues.
Furthermore, the letter is ironic, considering the Supreme Court's entire argument in turning over Roe v. Wade was that the issue must be handled by each state individually. The Supreme Court essentially removed itself from the conversation on abortion.
This letter is a great reminder that Democrats don't care about the integrity of our institutions and are willing to tear down the Court to protect their progressive agenda.
