Supreme court overturning Roe allows 'open season' on American freedoms, warns Schumer – video

The supreme court overturning the landmark Roe v Wade decision that protects women’s rights to abortion in the US would create an open season on Americans’ freedoms, majority leader Chuck Schumer has said.

Schumer was speaking before a vote in which the US Senate rejected legislation enshrining abortion rights into federal law 51-49.

On 2 May, a draft decision by the United States supreme court to overturn Roe was published by Politico, which has been verified as genuine by the justices but it ‘does not represent a decision by the court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case.’
