A day after Senate Minority Leader threatened the Supreme Court (and later apologized for his language), none other than Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-MN, took to Twitter with some very accusatory Tweets.
She suggested two SCOTUS Judges of being “accused sexual predators” and then stated that abortion was a Constitutional right.
Two accused sexual predators should not be deciding whether or not women have access to healthcare in this country. https://t.co/okJE85pwoN— Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan) March 4, 2020
“Two accused sexual predators should not be deciding whether or not women have access to healthcare in this country,” she said.
She is allegedly referring to unproven and false claims against Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas. Her statements were met with backlash from people around the country.
There's more evidence that you married your brother to commit immigration fraud than there is for your false claims about Supreme Court Justices.— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) March 4, 2020
Just look at some of the responses from people around the country to Omar’s Tweets below.
Ilhan, again, I'm asking you to direct me to Chapter and Verse in the U.S. Constitution, where the Founding Fathers wrote this so called "right" please show me so I can read it myself.....I'm waiting— Shadowbanned (@clamsroll) March 5, 2020
"Right to life..." is in the Constitution, so, abortion is pretty much the OPPOSITE of constitutional.— Susan [Needs a literary agent] Bagwell (@SweetieWalker) March 4, 2020
Maybe a Civics class or two would help with your glaring lack of knowledge about our nation's rights.
I'll mail you a copy of the Constitution since apparently you have never read it.— SusieQ4USA🇺🇸 (@127bama) March 4, 2020

I’m not sure where she read that it was a right but I know for certain that abortion is something our Founding Fathers didn’t include in the Constitution.
