Schumer Exposed the Democrats' Abortion Extremism

Just when you think abortion extremists in Congress can’t sink any lower, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened to make two sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices “pay the price” if they vote to uphold popular pro-life laws.

The case involves a Louisiana law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. The law was introduced in 2014 by State Representative Katrina Jackson, a pro-life Democrat, passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, and signed by a Democratic governor.
