Demand Justice Statement on Supreme Court Taking up Major Abortion Rights Case

WASHINGTON -

Following news the Supreme Court will hear a case challenging abortion rights, Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon issued the following statement:

"In opting to hear major cases next term on guns and now abortion, the Roberts Court conservatives have issued their verdict on President Biden's Commission: they consider it a complete nothingburger. The Republican-appointed justices appear to be moving even quicker than analysts predicted to make good on their supermajority status. The only question is, will Democrats recognize the storm clouds that are gathering, or will they continue to dither and allow themselves to get soaked before ever reaching for an umbrella? We do not have 180 days to squander on a faculty-lounge discussion to tell us what we already know: the Supreme Court is a looming threat to our democracy and in urgent need of reform."
