On Friday morning, the Supreme Court ended constitutional protection for abortion by overturning its landmark Roe v. Wade decision. Many Democrats are not responding well.

After the decision's release, Democratic elected officials, media members, and activists quickly assembled to delegitimize the Court and urge their supporters to take to the streets. As a result, the Washington Free Beacon compiled a list of the craziest liberal reactions to Roe‘s reversal.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.)

"You ain't seen nothing yet. … The hell with the Supreme Court. We will defy them. … And if they think black women are intimidated or afraid, they got another thought coming. Black women will be out in droves. We will be out by the thousands. We will be out by the millions."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.)

"ILLEGITIMATE! ILLEGITIMATE! ILLEGITIMATE! IN THE STREETS! IN THE STREETS! IN THE STREETS!"

Rep. Andy Levin (D., Mich.)

Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel (D.)
