.Maddow: 'I was struck by the fact that Sotomayor, Breyer, and Kagan all made this point, questioned their fellow justices about what it will do to the perceived legitimacy of the court if in fact they overturn Roe.'

Rachel Maddow explains why the anti-abortion justices on the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade would confirm what many people already think about the court being compromised by politics, and highlights the more liberal justices cautioning their colleagues who appear poised to fulfill the reason Republicans nominated them to the court.

maddow Taking away citizens freedom isn’t what this court should be doing. How can I NOT lose respect for the institution. maddow I find it ironic that the 3 Capone appointed Justices on SCOTUS all said R v W was the law of the land when they interviewed for the job. Now that they’re in, they’ve all come down with “Selective Amnesia”. I’m shocked! Aren’t you?

maddow Anything having any connection to tRump is ILLEGITIMATE! maddow This. 💯 % If SCOTUS overturns nearly 50 years of precedent, thereby making women 2nd class citizens, the ScotusStench of partisan politics will cause its obsolescence. May as well drop pretense of ChecksAndBalances & prune that JudicialBranch right off.

maddow Nothing will change for the woman who can afford to travel…..they will still get abortions. Other woman will be forced to risk there’s lives and some will die. Abortion will not end because it’s illegal. maddow The court's a sham. No one sees this court as 'legitimate' since Crying beer man and Amy were seated.

Melissa Mills, daughter of 'Jane Roe' speaks out on Supreme Court CaseThe U.S. Supreme Court appears poised to effectively overturn Roe v. Wade. Katy Tur sat down with Melissa Mills, daughter of 'Jane Roe' to talk about the arguments: 'It's disturbing for my kids, it's disturbing for me as a parent, as a mother, as a health care worker, all those things. It's just real disturbing we're going to step back.' Wow...how she can be pro-abortion is just astounding. LETS GET THIS STRAIGHT. REPUBLICANS AND COURT ARE PRO BIRTH. NOT LIFE. THEY SUPPORT NO HUN LAWS AND SECOND AMENDMENT. THERE ANTI VACCINE MANDATES. THEY REALLY HAVE NO REGARD FOR LIVES. ANTI ABORTION PRO GUN MASSACRE CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS. THATS FINE. Why can't you figure it out in 15 weeks? Now we don't want to follow science cause it don't fit your narative.
