“我们已经看到民主党的言论出现了可预测的增长, 包括民主党参议员关于如果法院推翻罗伊这将是一场革命,” 他告诉福克斯新闻. “This is really inappropriate and dangerous rhetoric.”

The senator’s comments were in response to a prediction made by Sen. 珍妮·沙欣, D-N.H., who said there would be a “revolution” if the high court repealed the 1973 landmark decision made in Roe v. 韦德.
“I hope the Supreme Court is listening to the people of the United States,” Shaheen said 星期一. “I think if you want to see a revolution go ahead, outlaw Roe v. Wade and see what the response is of the public, particularly young people.
“Because I think that will not be acceptable to young women or young men,” 她补充说.
Fox News could not immediately reach Shaheen for comment, but tough questioning by certain justices on the Supreme Court Wednesday in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health could spell trouble for proponents of Roe v. 韦德.
的 1973 decision made its way back to the Supreme Court this week when the constitutionality of a 2018 Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy was contested.
Democrats have long argued that the near 50-year precedent established under Roe v. Wade federally secures a women’s right to access an abortion and should not be reversed.
