    Democrats and liberals sharply criticized the Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Friday that overturned Roe v. Wade.

    • A leaked draft of the opinion prompted protests in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices and attacks on pro-life groups, crisis pregnancy centers and churches.
    • Democratic lawmakers blasted the ruling by so-called “right-wing extremists.”

    Democrats and liberals sharply criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Friday.

    The 6-3 ruling authored by Associate Justice Samuel Alito tracked the draft leaked in May, and found the Constitution did not guarantee a right to abortion, returning the power to restrict abortions to the states. The leak prompted protests in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices and attacks on pro-life groups, crisis pregnancy centers and churches.

    “The Court’s decision has destroyed nearly fifty years of precedent and will allow the criminalization of the right to this essential healthcare,” Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts said.

     

    “Horrifying decision by the Federalist Society justices actually undoing a constitutional right women have relied on for decades,” Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island tweeted.

     

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lambasted the decision during her weekly press conference, on Twitter and a statement.

    “A woman’s fundamental health decisions are her own to make in consultation with her doctor, her faith, her family, not some right-wing politicians that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell pack the court with,” she said during her press conference.

    “I am furious that right-wing extremists and Republican Senators have warped the Supreme Court into a partisan political body that does not respect decades of precedent or the fundamental freedoms of millions of Americans,” Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington posted on Twitter.

     

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted the decision on social media.

    “American women are having their rights taken by 5 unelected Justices on the extremist MAGA court,” Schumer tweeted. “These justices—appointed by Republicans and presiding without accountability—have stolen the fundamental right to abortion.”

     

    Republicans celebrated the decision in social media and in statements.

    “Our prayers were answers at the Supreme Court today!” Republican Rep. Marjorie Tylor Greene of Georgia posted on Twitter.

    Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia praised the decision in a statement.

    “The Supreme Court of the United States has rightfully returned power to the people and their elected representatives in the states,” he said, noting that he asked state legislators to “find areas we can agree and chart the most successful path forward.”

     

    Schumer, Markey, Whitehouse, Pelosi, Greene, Jayapal and Youngkin did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
