The Nation’s Elie Mystal appeared on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Wednesday and had an epic meltdown over the Supreme Court hearing oral arguments on Mississippi’s abortion law, claiming that conservatives believe a fetus “should have the same legal rights as full-grown black people.”

SCOTUS is pondering the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which could potentially overturn the 1973 landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.

“Conservatives want you to think that a fetus – a fetus who is pre-viability, it means it cannot exist outside of its mother, it cannot live outside of, of the womb, has the same – should have the same legal rights as full-grown black people in this country. And that the fact that it doesn’t is some kind of miscarriage of justice – no pun intended – and that the people who shouldn’t have the full rights are the women who are carrying the fetus,” Mystal adamantly told Reid.

“Now, I can prove that a fetus is not deserving of full personhood rights because if it were, they would be arguing that the fetus should be given citizenship. They would be arguing that the fetus should have other rights like a right to education, a right to healthcare. They would be arguing that I should be able to claim fetuses as dependents on my taxes, which you’ll note, they’re not,” he outrageously stated.

“They’re only concerned about the right of a fetus when that right can be used to diminish the rights of women. And that is what the conservatives are all about on the Supreme Court. That is what you heard in stark and I – I think you used the right word, offensive language throughout the court’s arguments today. But this is the day that conservatives have been planning for a generation,” Mystal accusingly asserted.

“They have picked people specifically to do this work. They are now here to do this work. And the person who looks like as much of an idiot as much as anybody today is Susan Collins who stood up there on the Senate floor and promised us that Brett Kavanaugh, of all people, was going to respect precedent, that he was going to respect settled law, that he believed that Roe v Wade was settled law. And Brett Kavanaugh was the guy today who did all the work explaining why he should be able to disregard precedent because he didn’t like how a previous case was decided,” he declared.

MSNBC host Joy Reid had previously claimed during the segment that conservatives want abortion laws that are on a par with Jim Crow laws.

“The justices were trying to, in a weaselly way, try to brand themselves as the heroes from the Brown vs. Board decision,” she contended. The statement was a reference to the landmark 1954 Supreme Court case that ruled that “separate but equal” segregation is unconstitutional. The ruling by the Supreme Court overturned the 1896 case Plessy v. Ferguson.

“To try to wrap themselves in Brown vs. Board. They love to quote Plessy. That’s one of the anti-abortion world’s famous things they love to go for,” posited Reid. “But they’re trying to wrap themselves in that because they understand that they are going against the vast majority of Americans’ will when they subject women to the, you know, vicissitudes of their state instead of states deciding what women do with their bodies.”

She also gave an over-the-top, alarmist warning to “166 million women living in America” that the Supreme Court could “reduce you to a secondary constitutional citizen” and force women to “leave the babies on the doorstep of the firehouse.”

Many on social media strongly disagreed with the outrageous and hypocritical views of Reid and Mystal:
