A furious Senator Elizabeth Warren rallied pro-choice supporters outside the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, delivering an impassioned speech denouncing what she called an “extremist” court.

“I’m angry,” the Massachusetts Democrat told cheering protesters, her voice cracking at times.

Warren spoke to protesters hours after Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed that a leaked draft opinion quashing Roe v. Wade was legit.

“I’m angry because an extremist Supreme Court of the United States thinks she’s imposing her extremist views on all women in this country, and they’re wrong,” she said, waving her finger in l ‘air.

She said she was angry because “we’ve reached the climax of what Republicans have been fighting for decades now, and we’re going to fight back.”

She said the decision would mainly affect poor women and victims of abuse.

“I’m here because the United States Congress can change all that!” she screamed.

Warren said she lived through the days when abortion was illegal, referring to the United States before Roe in 1973, “and we’re not going back there!”

Speaking to reporters as she left the protest, a raw and trembling Warren called herself “angry, upset and determined”.

After a reporter said she had “never seen” the Democrat so angry, she replied, struggling for her composure: “This is what Republicans have been working on for decades.”

She continued to talk about the majority of Americans who did not want Roe to be overthrown. “We’ve heard enough from the extremists! And we’ve had enough,” she said, her voice growing louder to drown out a nearby pro-life protester. The pro-life protester said, “We don’t want to dismember children in the womb,” as Warren got into her car.

Passing a federal law making abortion legal could be difficult in Congress. Democrats have a narrow 50-50 majority in the Senate (with two independent caucuses with Democrats and Vice President Kamala Harris cutting ties) and moderate senses Joe Manchin, DW.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Arizona, support maintaining the filibuster threshold of 60 votes.

In March, Mancin joined Republicans in blocking a bill that would have codified Roe.
