A Determined, Angry Nancy Pelosi Vows To...

WASHINGTON — In the end, House Speaker they would respect “stare decisis,” the idea that precedents should be respected and only changed with care.

“How about those justices, coming before the senators and saying they respected ‘stare decisis,’ the precedent of the court? That they respected the right of privacy in the Constitution of the United States?” she asked.

“Did you hear that? Were they not telling the truth then?”

Pelosi noted the House had already passed legislation to put into law the right to abortion — an effort stalled in the Senate — and said Democrats need to maintain control of Congress and elect two more Democrats in the Senate to allow it to scrap the filibuster.

“A woman’s right to choose, reproductive freedom, is on the ballot in November,” she said.

Success, she said, depended on people knowing what was going on and becoming energized, like in 2017 immediately after Trump was sworn in, resulting in Democrats taking the House in 2018.

“We have to have something commensurate with that,” she said.

“It is clear that we just have to win a majority in November. Everything is at stake.”
