Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened Trump-nominated Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh Wednesday, telling them they will “pay the price” if they uphold a pro-life law from Louisiana that saves babies from abortion and protects women’s health.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price, Schumer yelled into the mic before a crowd of abortion supporters.
“You won’t know what hit you if you go through with these awful decisions,” he added.

Responding to the tirade, pro-life Sen. Ben Sasse tore into Schumer.
“The Democratic Party is so radicalized on abortion politics that today Chuck Schumer threatened Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh if they didn’t strike down a simple, common-sense, pro-woman law that simply says that abortion doctors need to have admission privileges at a local hospital,” the Nebraska Republican said Wednesday in a statement. “Think about this, if a Republican threatened Justice Sotomayor or Justice Ginsburg, it would be the biggest story not just in Washington but all across America.”
“But, Chuck Schumer’s bully tactics aren’t getting much air time right now because there’s so many people in bed with his defense of abortion and his attack on an independent judiciary. These bullying tactics need to stop,” Sasse added.
The Supreme Court this morning held oral arguments on a key pro-life law that saves babies from abortion and protects women from dangerous abortions that could jeopardize their lives and health.
The 2014 Louisiana law at the center of the case requires abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges to treat patients with emergency complications. If allowed to take effect, it could close shoddy abortion facilities that are not prepared to help patients suffering from emergency complications.
