WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri told Tucker Carlson on Tuesday that the “far-left” worships abortion, as evidenced by the reaction of activists to the news of Roe v. Wade potentially being reversed.

“Abortion is religion for the far-left, and they are willing to do anything to defend that religion and to force it on everyone else, and that’s why they are willing to burn down the Court as an institution,” Hawley said.

He responded to a tweet from leftist congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) that told people to “take to the streets across the country” to protest the possibility of Roe being reversed.

Sen. Hawley said the basis of Roe is that “the people are too stupid to make these decisions” on abortion laws on their own.

“That’s why we need to get back to trusting the people and actually enforcing the Constitution,” Hawley said.

Sen. Hawley criticized President Joe Biden for saying on Tuesday that abortion policy should not be left up to “the whims … of the public.”

“I hope the Court will stick to it,” Sen. Hawley said.

Carlson asked Hawley if he thought someone would speak up against potential violence from leftists. He said he “hopes” Democratic leaders will tamp down pressure and intimidation campaigns. Hawley cited Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s threats in 2020 against Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch before a case concerning a Louisiana abortion law. He alluded to other threats from Democratic politicians.

“I want to tell you, Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Sen. Schumer said outside of the court during oral arguments. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) implied on Tuesday she wants to see Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh investigated and prosecuted for a potential vote to reverse Roe v. Wade.

“What should be investigated and prosecuted is the fact that people who were nominated to the Supreme Court stood up and said they believed in the rule of law and precedent, and then at first opportunity, changed direction by 180 degrees and are going for a full repeal of Roe,” Warren said, according to ABC News.

“They’re just trying to hijack the institution to get their religion forced on everyone else,” Hawley told Carlson.
