Pelosi: SCOTUS ‘is eviscerating Americans’ rights’

In an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused the Supreme Court of “eviscerating” Americans’ rights.

“The Supreme Court is eviscerating the Voting Rights Act, they have eviscerated campaign finance reform by their Citizens United decision,” Pelosi said. “The list goes on and on of how they have undermined what most Americans believe in.”

She continued, “I think that the court is on a very wrong track, and I think that the Republicans have been packing the court, as they have been packing the Congress, as they have been packing the state houses with people who do not believe in government for the people.”

Pelosi’s comments come as the Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on Tuesday in a case that could strike down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act.

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House:

“There’s no point in saying good morning because it certainly is not one. This morning, the radical Supreme Court is eviscerating Americans’ rights and endangering their health and safety. But the Congress will continue to act to overcome this extremism and protect the American people. Today, the Republican controlled Supreme Court has achieved their dark, extreme goal of ripping away women’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions. Because of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party, their supermajority in Supreme Court, American women today have less freedom than their mothers. With Roe and their attempt to destroy it, radical Republicans are charging ahead with their crusade to criminalize health freedom. In the Congress, be aware of this, the Republicans are plotting a nationwide abortion ban. They cannot be allowed to have a majority in the Congress to do that but that’s their goal. And if you read and again, we’re all studying all this, but you read what is in the very clear, one of the justices has had his own statement. It’s about contraception, in vitro fertilization, family planning, that is all what will spring from their decision that they made today. Such a contradiction. Yesterday, they say the states cannot make laws governing the constitutional right to bear arms. And today they’re saying the exact reverse, that the states can overturn a constitutional right for 50 years, a constitutional right for women having the right to choose. The hypocrisy is raging, but the harm is endless. What this means to women is such an insult. It’s a slap in the face to women about using their own judgment to make their own decisions about their reproductive freedom. And again, it goes well, I always have said the termination of a pregnancy is just their opening act. It’s just their front game. That because, but behind behind it, and for years I have seen in this Congress opposition to any family planning, domestic or global. When we have had those discussions and those debates and those votes on the floor of the House. This is deadly serious, but we are not going to let this pass. A woman’s right to choose, reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November. We cannot allow them to take charge so that they can institute their goal, which is to criminalize reproductive freedom, to criminalize it. Right now they’re saying in states that they can arrest doctors and all the rest. What is happening here? What is happening here? 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 packed the court with. While Republicans seek to punish and control women, Democrats will keep fighting ferociously to enshrine Roe v Wade into law of the land. This cruel ruling is outrageous and heart wrenching. Make no mistake again: It’s all on the ballot in November.”
