The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending the 49-year national right to have an abortion, begs the question: what will the left do next?
In his recent book “Saving Nine: The Fight Against the Left’s Audacious Plan to Pack the Supreme Court and Destroy American Liberty,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who faces two Republican opponents in his state’s primary next week , foresees radical changes consequences of the decision of SCOTUS.
“If the pro-abortion left doesn’t like the decision, we could soon find ourselves in the midst of a constitutional crisis,” Lee writes.
SUPREME COURT OVERHEADS ROE V. WADE IN HISTORIC OPINION
“[T]he stage is set for an invasion of the Supreme Court. There is money pouring in from progressive organizations everywhere. These organizations are pressuring Democratic lawmakers to attack the justice system. Their stated goal is to increase the size of the Supreme Court from nine to thirteen or more. From that moment on, public opinion was against them. But they are well aware that if they can convince enough Americans that the Supreme Court has acquired, in the words of Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the “stench” of politics, then they could convince enough of it,” wrote Lee.
Many Democratic lawmakers are now calling for exactly that in the wake of Friday’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision.
AMERICANS SAY THEY ARE DIVIDED OVER COURT PACKAGE AFTER TOP DEMS CALL FOR ADDITION OF JUSTICE TO SUPREME COURT
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., tweeted, “As we fight to make abortion federally legal, I continue to reject the legitimacy of such an undemocratic institution. Broaden the court.”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., posted a disturbing video to solemn music. “With the Supreme Court’s decision, we have reached a critical moment that has been brewing for a long time,” she said.
“For decades, extremists have cultivated far-right justices and spent billions in black money. When that still wasn’t enough, Republicans stole two Supreme Court seats, all to impose their unpopular agenda on the rest. They’re looking to vet next? Extra vetting of doctors by putting every OBGYN on a watch list? Extra vetting of pregnant women by monitoring their whereabouts and investigating miscarriages? Look, this n “It’s not academic. … The level of control the Republican Party wants over individual Americans is undemocratic and frankly, it’s downright scary. It’s disastrous.”
Warren then told his followers what they needed to do to prevent that from happening: “In a post-Roe world, I have a plan. One: Elect pro-choice Democrats. Two: Elect Democrats who will end the filibuster in the Senate. . And three: Developing the Supreme Court.”
Democrats are expected to use today’s ruling on the campaign trail leading up to November’s midterm elections. According to the Quinnipiac poll conducted last week, 62% of registered voters, including 89% of Democrats, agree with the Roe v. Wade of 1973, against 32% who disagree, including 10% Democrats.

But on the issues of ending the filibuster and filling the courthouse, which Liberal candidates are already renewing their calls for, voters, including Democrats, are less enthusiastic. Whether that will change after today’s decision remains to be seen.
