Video: ‘This Is as Urgent and as Real as It Gets’

Chuck Schumer

( – As elected Democrats across the United States of America seemingly panic over the leaked draft of an opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization showing that the United States Supreme Court is on the verge of striking down Roe v. Wade, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), while standing with his Senate Democrat colleagues outside of the United States Capitol, said he will take immediate action.

You can watch the video of Schumer further down this post.

According to Schumer:

In light of this potential ruling, I want to make three things very clear.

First, it is our intention for the Senate to hold a vote on legislation to codify the right to an abortion in law.

Second, a vote on this legislation is no longer an abstract exercise. This is as urgent and as real as it gets. We will vote to protect a women’s right to choose. And every American is going to see which side every Senator stands on.

Third, to the American people, I say this: The elections this November will have consequences because the rights of a hundred million women are now on the ballot.

To help fight this court’s awful decision, I urge every American to make their voices heard this week and this year.

Call your members. Write them. Call your Senators. Write them. Email them. Text them. And most of all, cast your ballots this November.

Because if Roe v. Wade is overturned, we have to assume there’s more to come. The question is: What will these Republicans, these right-wing Republicans, target next?
