New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has reportedly threatened to sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe vs. Wade.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo pledged to sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that made abortion legal nationwide.
Speaking to a crowd in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., on Wednesday, the Democrat said Republicans in control of the state Senate may soon lack an excuse for not codifying on the state level the protections underlined in Roe v. Wade and called on them to do so immediately.
"We now need to codify Roe v. Wade, which will actually increase the protections in New York," he said. "God forbid they do what they intend to do, which is overturn Roe v. Wade. I want to get it done before the Supreme Court does that, because I don't want any gap in a woman's right to protection, and we have a better legal case when the Supreme Court acts because I will sue when the Supreme Court acts."
Strange? How do you sue he highest court in the land? Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
