Former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson celebrated the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade which granted a constitutional right to an abortion for nearly 50 years. On “Fox & Friends Weekend” Saturday, Johnson argued Democrats are responsible for this historic decision having “swung this pendulum” too far left and leading many Americans to demand legislation.
SUPREME COURT OVERTURNS ROE V. WADE IN LANDMARK OPINION
ABBY JOHNSON: I think that we have Trump to thank for this, for putting constitutionalist judges on the Supreme Court. But, I mean, really, I think the left has done this to themselves. They have swung this pendulum so far to one side that the safe, legal and rare argument made sense to a lot of people. It made sense to independents. It made sense to moderate Republicans. But swinging this pendulum so far to the left, where they are now demanding abortion on demand for any reason all through nine months of pregnancy, and they want us to pay for it. That is something that just doesn’t make sense to the majority of Americans. It doesn’t make sense to the bulk of Democrats. And so they have really done this to themselves by taking such an extremist position on abortion. And people finally rose up and said, this is crazy, this is ridiculous. This is not something that I want to support. The states rose up, they passed legislation and now here we are with the end of Roe.
