Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., responded to the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade if published by saying not only should Congress pass a law to legalize abortion nationwide, they should increase the size of the Supreme Court and add liberal justices.
Schiff proposed what is commonly known as court-packing in a Wednesday evening tweet in which he said he is not concerned with how Justice Samuel Alito's draft leaked to the press, as Republicans have expressed outrage over it.
"I don’t care how the draft leaked. That’s a sideshow. What I care about is that a small number of conservative justices, who lied about their plans to the Senate, intend to deprive millions of women of reproductive care," Schiff said. "Codifying Roe isn't enough. We must expand the court."
