The Supreme Court overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision on Friday morning. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) railed against the Supreme Court’s decision with fellow pro-abortion activists and a Revolutionary Communist outside the Supreme Court.
Ocasio-Cortez was chanting that the Supreme Court’s decision is “illegitimate” along with the pro-abortion crowd, as seen in a video taken by TPUSA contributor Drew Hernandez.

Taylor called the Roe v. Wade overruling an “atrocity” and the “shattering of lives.” She claimed that the decision would usher in the “unleashing of the state to hunt women down and treat their wombs like sites of surveillance.”

The Revolutionary Communist Party called for “fury into the streets” following the overruling.
“The fascist Supreme Court just overturned #RoeVWade & stripped women of their legal status as full human beings,” the radical group wrote on Twitter. “This court, & the whole system, are ILLEGITIMATE!!! Bring your fury into the streets & don’t stop until this decision is reversed! And get organized for REVOLUTION!”
InfluenceWatch describes the Revolutionary Communist Party as a “radical-left political party in the United States that seeks to overthrow the government and implement a socialist system of government.”
The RCP website states: “Its members are united in their profound desire for a radically different and better world, and their understanding of the need for revolution to get to that world. They have dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to revolution, and on the basis of that they channel their individual abilities and passions to the cause and needs of this revolution.”
Bob Avakian – the party’s chairman and a Maoist – declared, “Only through the revolution to overthrow this system, and uproot all the relations of exploitation and oppression that are embodied in this system, will it be possible to finally end the fundamental division in which half of humanity is subordinated to and dominated by the other half, and all the brutality and agony bound up with that.”
The Federalist wrote of the Revolutionary Communist Party: “The RCP has historically played a front and center role in orchestrating violent riots, including the 1992 Los Angeles Rodney King Riots and the 2014 Ferguson riots, where the Daily Beast called them ‘the communist agitators trying to ignite Ferguson.'”
The outlet added, “The party’s constitution says they openly seek, ‘a revolution that overthrows this system and the capitalist-imperialist class that embodies and runs it—a revolution that will immediately establish a new power.'”
Taylor has made calls for a “revolution” to “overthrow” the “oppressive” American system numerous times on Twitter.
Pro-abortion group Rise Up 4 Abortion – which Taylor co-founded in January – bragged, “AOC joined us in the streets to call out this decision for what it is ILLEGITIMATE This court is Illegitimate and this decision must not stand.”

Mary Margaret Olohan – a D.C. correspondent for the Daily Wire – asked Ocasio-Cortez if she would condemn any violence by pro-abortion groups. However, AOC refused to answer the question.

Ocasio-Cortez also claimed that people would die because of the Supreme Court decision.
“Overturning Roe and outlawing abortions will never make them go away,” AOC tweeted. “It only makes them more dangerous, especially for the poor + marginalized.”
“People will die because of this decision,” she asserted. “And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the United States of America.”
