"Supreme Court"
Engagement by party
From Sen. Cantwell, representing Washington

The Supreme Court set off a political earthquake across the U.S. with a draft release of what could be a ban on abortion. Millions of Americans have since marched in their communities to protect reproductive rights. We won’t go back to an era where women are second class citizens

From Rep. Evans, representing Pennsylvania

Good op-ed by @RepDarisha on what’s at stake as the Trump-McConnell Supreme Court looks likely to overturn #RoeVWade.
This is why the U.S. Senate needs to join the House in passing the Women’s Health Protection Act!

Democrats say Disinformation Czar Nina Jankowicz has been subjected to unjustified attacks and threats.

So she must feel like a Supreme Court justice these days.

From Sen. Durbin, representing Illinois

The leaked Alito opinion is the latest green light for red-state legislators to rip a constitutional right to shreds. And Senate Republicans just continue to sit on the sidelines while it happens.

Washington, DC

News from the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL), author of the Dream Act and the Fair Sentencing Act, fighter for equal justice under law.


13 states, including OK, have trigger laws that would automatically ban abortion in the first & second trimesters if Roe is overturned. Between this and what's happening within the walls of SCOTUS, it has never been more urgent to codify the right to access an abortion into law.

ICYMI, here’s the truth about what’s happening in red state governments right now:

From Rep. Mace, representing South Carolina

Threats to our Supreme Court Justices are un-American. Our country is becoming more divided than ever, & this Administration was supposed to be a unifier, not a divider.

The rule of law should never be threatened.

From Sen. Gillibrand, representing New York

My message to Justices Alito, Gorsuch, Thomas, Barrett, and Kavanaugh: Respect our voices. Respect our choices. Respect our rights to life, liberty, and equal justice under the law.

And if you fail, I promise you: We will never stop fighting. And we will prevail.

From Rep. Cohen, representing Tennessee

If the Supreme Court lets red states outlaw abortion, half the country will lose access to abortions unless you have enough time and money. In Memphis, you’ll have to go to Illinois, and Tennessee could even put a bounty on your head for being involved with an abortion.

From Sen. Wyden, representing Oregon

Horrific. Red state doctors are already refusing to treat miscarriage patients for fear of being investigated and punished. Which is a tragic yet predictable consequence of abortion restrictions, which turn every uterus into a potential crime scene.

Washington, DC

Senior writer @Slate. Courts and the law. Do you have a link to the ruling?


Countless women are going to die because right-wing radicals on the Supreme Court want to turn back the clock on their bodily autonomy by a century.

From Rep. Green, representing Tennessee

When will @HouseDemocrats condemn this across the board? Violence of any kind is wrong and will not be tolerated.

Let’s be clear: striking down Roe won’t end abortions, even in states that make abortions illegal. Instead, it will deny women in those states access to safe abortions and it will mean some women will die.

That's why the Senate must act to codify the right to abortion that women have relied upon for a half century. We simply cannot allow the conservative Supreme Court justices to deny women one of the most basic rights: control over their bodies.
