On Wednesday morning, actress Busy Philipps showed up with abortion-rights activists, including actress and Hollywood director Elizabeth Banks, who led a pro-abortion rally outside the Supreme Court.
The rally, which also featured Democratic politicians including Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), as well as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), took place as justices heard oral arguments for June Medical Services v. Russo, a case relating to the future of abortion services in Louisiana, reported Breitbart.
Busy Philipps declared that she will never stop telling the world about her abortion, which she had at 15 years old, and suggested she would not be where she was at today, had she not done it.
“I have all of this– all of it, because, because, because, I was allowed bodily, atonomy at 15!” Philipps yelled.
“I will not be shamed into being quiet. We will not be shamed into being quiet again never again. I will never stop talking about my abortion, or my periods, or my experiences in childbirth, my episiotomy, my yeast infections, or my ovulation that lines up with the moon,” she screamed.
At that same rally, Senator Chuck Schumer appeared to threaten Supreme Court Justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, should they vote against abortion. (Continued Below)
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!” Senator Schumer warned. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” The New York Democrat also said the pair “won’t know what hit you” if they side in a way that hurts abortion access in a case before the court Wednesday.
Chief Justice John Roberts condemned Schumer’s comments, accusing him of “dangerous” rhetoric. “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous,” Roberts said in a statement.

"Thousands and thousands of women shared their own experiences. The whys do not matter. What matters is that we are loud and heard. I will not be shamed into being quiet.
