I fear that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have fallen off the plateau of rationality and are sliding into the pit of insanity. In their reaction to news that the Supreme Court might overturn Roe v Wade, they introduced legislation in the House and Senate to codify Roe. Actually, they proposed to go far beyond Roe and make it possible for a woman to obtain an abortion on demand up until almost the very moment of birth. This extreme legislation would be pleasing only to abortionists and is no way in accord with the wishes of the vast majority of the American people.
Pelosi and Schumer are not ignorant. They know their proposed bills are probably unconstitutional and would be quickly voided by the Supreme Court. Why did they introduce these bills?
I believe they did it to placate the left-wing radicals who have such a stranglehold on the current Democrat leadership in Congress and in the statehouses..
The frightening fact is that the legislation easily passed the House and only failed by one vote in the Senate. The Democrat legislators followed their leaders lock step as they marched them toward the pit. Joe Manchin was the only Democrat senator with the wisdom and courage to say no.
What has happened to the once great Democrat party?
