Political socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks Democrats should “pack” the U.S. Supreme Court if they want abortion on demand to remain legal.

The New York congressional candidate spoke about abortion and other topics Oct. 1 after a screening of the film “Fahrenheit 11/9.” Though she openly describes herself as a socialist, she is running as a Democrat in the November midterms.

The Washington Free Beacon reports Ocasio-Cortez was asked what Democrats should do about a U.S. Supreme Court with a conservative majority now that Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed. Democrats fear the high court could overturn Roe v. Wade or at least chip away at abortion on demand.

This was Ocasio-Cortez’s answer:

“I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said. …

Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez said progressives can’t compromise with “insane” people on the right.

“When you’re dealing with these insane people holding the country hostage on the right, you can’t go in with your end point. You have to go in with a strong position,” she said. “If they’re trying to end Planned Parenthood, I don’t think we go in with, ‘No, let’s keep Planned Parenthood.’ I think we go in with, ‘Let’s expand women’s rights to health care and have it guaranteed in every state.’ I think we can compromise on our tactics and how we get there, but we can’t compromise where we’re going.”

The young socialist candidate received praise in July from former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, and it receives about $500 million tax dollars every year.

On her campaign website, Ocasio-Cortez reveals just how radical her pro-abortion beliefs are. She said she does not support any “rollbacks, cuts or restrictions” on abortion. She also described “reproductive freedom,” which includes abortion on demand, as “essential.”
