WASHINGTON, March 5, 2020 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Yesterday, as the U.S. Supreme Court was hearing an important abortion case, June Medical Services v. Russo
, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) publicly threatened Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh while speaking to a crowd of abortion supporters, as evidenced in a widely shared video clip of his remarks.
"And they're taking away fundamental rights. I want to tell you, Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch: You have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price," Schumer shouted to the cheering crowd. "You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."
"As the highest ranked Democrat in the Senate, it is intolerable that Schumer would issue direct threats by name to two Supreme Court Justices if they did not vote his way on this case," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "I call on Chuck Schumer to resign. Anyone who can make those kinds of direct and intimidating threats against the nation's highest court is not fit to serve, and probably belongs behind bars."Read full statement with embedded video of Schumer's direct threat against two justices appointed by President Trump
