The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner regarding recent Supreme Court comments from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.:

“The Supreme Court has stated in the past that men and women of good will can disagree on the contentious issue of abortion. However, Schumer’s comments threatening Supreme Court justices if they do not vote his way on this issue seem to indicate otherwise.

It appears that in fact, those who disagree with Senate Minority Leader Schumer and his party on abortion are demonized and threatened. This is a sad commentary on the state of public discourse in our nation today.”
