Schumer warns ‘MAGA Republicans’ will enact nationwide abortion ban, will see ‘doctors and women arrested’

Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the U.S. Senate majority leader, engaged in some fearmongering or gaslighting after the chamber failed to pass a far-reaching abortion law on Wednesday when West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, along with Republican lawmakers including the moderates, voted no.

“Elect more pro-choice Democrats if you want to see a woman have control over her own body. Elect more pro-choice Democrats if you want to protect a woman’s freedom and right to choose. Elect MAGA Republicans, if you want to see a nationwide ban on abortion, if you want to see doctors and women arrested, if you want to see no exceptions for rape or incest,” an unhappy Schumer said, without evidence, after the vote that he scheduled failed.

If the Dems focus-grouped the MAGA branding, maybe they should ask for their money back from their consultants.

It’s also possible, in the alternative, that Democrats preferred to lose the vote as a way to drive turnout among their base to the polls in November.

It’s kind of a surprise, moreover, that electioneering Schumer, who said he was attempting to make the contrast between the two political parties “crystal clear,” missed the opportunity to lament the opposition from “Ultra-MAGA” Republicans.

You may recall that a hyperventilating Schumer ranted about conservative justices “paying the price” for “unleashing the whirlwind” in a previous SCOTUS abortion-related controversy.

“Make no mistake, it is not Roe vs. Wade codification,” Manchin said in justifying his vote against the bill. “It is an expansion.”

According to a New York Post editorial earlier this week, “the fact is that most of Americans are neither completely pro-life nor totally pro-choice, but a mix of both.”

The leaked, draft Supreme Court opinion authored by Justice Samuel Alito that would strike down the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision if it ever becomes finalized by the majority on the high court would return the abortion rights issue to the states to regulate individually.

The unauthorized disclosure created a firestorm in political/media precincts.

Even if Roe is overturned, the pregnancy-termination procedure, which is a very sensitive issue over which many people are conflicted as the Post suggested, will continue to be legal in blue states and subject to certain restrictions in red states.

The political landscape could change, but to the Dems’ dismay, it appears at this point that most voters are more concerned with out-of-control inflation rather than the pro-choice/pro-life debate.

Schumer and others among the my body, my choice, body-autonomy liberal cohort, moreover, were non-responsive when thousands of women (and men) were forced out of their jobs across the country, including those in the nursing profession and first responders, because of a COVID vaccine mandate.

Chuck’s powers of persuasion are falling short on Twitter. Here is a sampling:
