[WATCH] AOC & Maxine Waters Join Protesters Gathered Outside SCOTUS After Roe Reversal

The crowd that had gathered Friday to protest the Supreme Court’s decision to remove the Constitutional right to privacy from the majority of Americans was joined by members of Congress who stood with them against the ruling.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Maxine Waters (D-NY) were among those who called for all Americans to protest in their cities against the ruling, which effectively ends legal and safe abortions in at least half of the states. “Overturning Roe and outlawing abortions will never make them go away, ” AOC tweeted earlier in the day. “It only makes them more dangerous, especially for the poor + marginalized. People will die because of this decision. And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the United States of America.”

After the ruling, AOC gave a passionate speech on the House floor regarding the dangerous new precedent being set by the imbalanced Supreme Court.

Ocasio-Cortez, never once to mince words, laid it out.

 

 

Rep. Waters was equally fiery in her own comments. “The hell with the Supreme Court!” she said while outside the Court.

Waters also tweeted her support for abortion rights.

Protests were popping up nationwide Friday afternoon as Missouri rushed to become the first state to negate all women’s bodily autonomy with the same glee of being first to get through the gates at a truck pull.

Right-wing Twitter accounts seized upon their calls to action and tried to twist the message into calls to violence, but liberal Twitter wasn’t having any of that.

The Governors of Blue states have already begun implementing their plans to be sanctuaries for those seeking reproductive care, with the entire West Coast already deemed a “Sanctuary Zone” by the three state Governors.

Abortion rights activists have promised to make Roe their number one issue for the November midterms.
