Washington Times: Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing for a bill in the state legislature that would establish abortion as a right under New York state law. That bill is being sold as preparation for the possibility that the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. He stated that he would “sue the Supreme Court when the Supreme Court acts.” His odd threat has drawn criticism from Fox News Channel political analyst Brit Hume.
Excerpt from Washington Times:
“We now need to codify Roe v. Wade, which will actually increase the protections in New York. God forbid they do what they intend to do. I want to get it done before the Supreme Court does that because I don’t want any gaps in a woman’s right to protection. We have a better legal case when the Supreme Court acts because I will sue when the Supreme Court acts,” Mr. Cuomo said in a statement, according to Rochester TV station WHEC.
The statement caused much head-scratching among conservatives, for a number of reasons, not the least being … how does one sue the Supreme Court? And where?
