Ayanna Pressley Wants To Expand U.S. Supreme Court

July 4, 2022

It’s not just U.S. Senator Ed Markey (D-Malden) who wants to expand the federal Supreme Court to make abortion legal nationwide.

U.S. Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-Hyde Park) recently tweeted in support of the idea.

Pressley, a supporter of legal abortion, tweeted about what she wants to do to make elective abortion legal in all 50 states.

“It’s still — Codify Roe v. Wade — Abolish the filibuster — Expand the Court,” Pressley tweeted Friday, July 1.

Supporters of expanding the Supreme Court have typically expressed support for expanding the court to include 13 justices. The goal is to add four Democrat-nominated  justices to the court so the left-of-center justices on the court would outweigh the Republican picks seven to six.
