One Senator Made STARTLING Accusation Against Democrats Over This
For all the nonsense that Democrats have been pushing over the last several months (years, really), one thing is really clear: Democrats know how to make enemies.
And one enemy that they’ve seemed to make is Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton who recently accused Democrats of blackmail about their efforts to pack the U.S. Supreme Court. As disturbing, though, to many conservatives, is why Democrats are threatening to pack the court. Matthew Vadum gives us the details:
Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton accused Democrats of “blackmail” for threatening to pack the Supreme Court if it upholds a pro-life Mississippi law.
Cotton’s single-word tweet consisting of the word “blackmail” came in response to an article in The Hill newspaper that quoted 4 Democratic U.S. senators vowing to expand the size of the Supreme Court in order to protect abortion rights should the court decide to uphold Mississippi’s H.B. 1510, the Gestational Age Act of 2018, which allows abortions after 15 weeks’ gestational age only in medical emergencies or for severe fetal abnormality.
Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), also weighed in on the article and its contents.
“Not surprised. Called it,” Daines tweeted.
Now, you may be asking why Democrats, who receive millions of dollars every election year from Planned Parenthood, the U.S.’s largest abortion provider, are so upset about the court deciding to rule on an abortion case. Vadum continues:
In theory, the Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that made abortion lawful throughout the United States, but court watchers say narrowing its reach seems more likely.
The court could also take aim at the splintered Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992) decision, a plurality opinion that held that states can’t impose significant restrictions on abortion before a fetus becomes viable for life outside the womb. The Casey ruling didn’t specify when viability occurs but suggested it was at about the 23-week or 24-week gestation mark, as opposed to the 28-week mark assumed by Roe v. Wade.
Senate Judiciary Committee member Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told The Hill the plan to pack the court will receive a boost if the Supreme Court makes getting abortions more difficult.
In other words, if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and, especially, if they dismantle Planned Parenthood v. Casey, then the nation’s largest abortion provider would, essentially, get shut down in all fifty states. In other words, Democrats would lose one of their largest sources of campaign contributions.
And there you have it: it’s all about the money. For Democrat politicians, abortion is a source of campaign funds, a source that much of the rest of the nation would call blood money.
