Jordan Declares SCOTUS Abortion Decision a ‘Victory over the Intimidation Tactics of the Left’

During an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) celebrated the Supreme Court’s recent decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which overturned the court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, returning the issue of abortion back to the states.

On Friday, the Supreme Court issued their decision in the Dobbs case, ruling 6-3 in favor of upholding a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Ultimately, only five of the six justices voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, with the sixth — Chief Justice John Roberts — issuing a concurring decision which stated that he would have upheld Mississippi’s abortion ban without overturning Roe.

Jordan celebrated the ruling as not only a “win for life,” the Constitution, and common sense, but also a “victory over the intimidation tactics of the left.”

“[T]he left … will always try and intimidate you,” the Ohio congressman said. “But this decision this week was a win for life, was a win for the Constitution, a win for common sense.”

He went on to recognize that the ruling could not have happened without the three conservative justices appointed to the Supreme Court under former President Donald Trump — Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.

“And God bless the Supreme Court. And God bless President Trump. This doesn’t happen if he doesn’t put the right people on the court. I mean, this is — this was a huge victory for life. But it was also a victory over the intimidation tactics of the left,” Jordan said.

The Republican congressman also discussed the radicalism of the left in regards to the actions they’ve taken against conservative Supreme Court justices, pointing out that their intimidation tactics ultimately did not succeed.

“Never forget the pattern here,” Jordan stated. “I mean, it started with the Kavanaugh confirmation, all the crazy things they did. Then it was Schumer on the steps of the Supreme Court saying all the ridiculous things he said. It was Jerry Nadler introducing a bill to pack the court. It was the intimidation tactics they tried to use against Justice Thomas and his wife. And, of course, then it was the leak of the draft opinion. It was a hearing the Judiciary Committee had on this subject matter pending in front of the court on the abortion issue. And then, of course, it was the assassination attempt on a sitting United States Supreme Court justice.”

“But none of that mattered,” he added. “The court did the right thing. And they said the Constitution means what it says, and we got a victory for life. But, again, this doesn’t happen if President Trump doesn’t do what he said he would do and put the right people on our highest court.”
