Democrat Politicians Renew Calls to Pack the Supreme Court, Add More Liberal Judges

Democrat politicians are renewing their calls to pack the Supreme Court following the oral arguments in the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban case that has potential to unravel Roe v. Wade.

The court is currently made up of six conservative justices and three liberals, after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg — and the liberals are not very happy about it.

The court heard arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case on Wednesday and legal analysts believe the conservative-majority court is gearing up to strike down the precedent set in Roe v. Wade.

“As a result, Democratic lawmakers have called to remove the Senate filibuster requiring 60 votes to pass legislation to add more seats to the court,” Fox News reports.

“A ‘conservative’ court would uphold precedent. But a ‘partisan’ court may not — and this may be the most partisan court in history,” Rep. Adam Schiff said of the demands to pack the court. “We must protect a woman’s right to choose.”

Senator Tina Smith also called for packing the court.

Rep. Judy Chu urged Congress to pass the Judiciary Act, which would allow them to expand the number of judges to 13.

Sen. Edward J. Markey also tweeted after oral arguments, “9 is not a magic number … We have to talk about expanding the Court now. #ExpandTheCourt”
