Rep. Maxine Waters Slams Supreme Court For Overturning Roe v. Wade

In addition to the many celebrities and political figures speaking about and reacting to the Supreme Court just now overturning the historic Roe v. Wade right to abortion decision, California’s Democratic State Representative Maxine Waters is slamming the system, claiming, “To hell with them. We will defy them.”

After the Supreme’s Court June 24, 2022 decision, Congresswoman Waters pledged to defy and protest the Supreme Court for overturning Roe v. Wade.

While standing out the court with dozens of pro-life and pro-choice protesters, Rep. Waters said:

“You see this turnout here?  You ain’t seen nothing yet. Women are going to control their bodies no matter how they try and stop us. The hell with the Supreme Court. We will defy them.

Women will be in control of their bodies. And if they think Black women are intimidated or afraid, they got another thought coming.

Black women will be out in droves. We will be out by the thousands, we will be out by the millions. We are going to make sure we fight for the right to control our own bodies.”

As we previously reported, on Friday (June 24, 2022) , in a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which initially allowed women to have an abortion.

The new ruling now remands the issue of abortion back to the states to regulate abortions; which dozens have already begun to enact upon, implementing the strict ban once again.

It’s reported that the majority of those who had a role in the decision, upheld Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

This was the case that directly challenged Roe v. Wade’s ban on most abortion restrictions.

Writing for the majority, Justice Samuel Alito said:

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely — the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.”
