If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, desperate Democrats hope they’ve found their next George Floyd.

In 2020, a presidential election year, Floyd’s death while in the hands of Minneapolis police “sparked” protests (AKA bloody riots) in Democrat-run cities across the country.  Democrats may angle for something similar should Justice Alito’s draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade be issued. 

Leaking Alito’s draft upending Roe v. Wade was suggested as a rogue left-wing law clerk’s attempt to scuttle the opinion’s issuance.  Don’t buy it.  The leak was orchestrated to impact the 2022 midterm elections.  At the very least, Democrats to fire up their feminist base.

Facing disaster in the midterms, Democrats aim to fall back on their 2020 playbook: manufacture fear and uncertainty.  Lie — and lie a lot — in that ending Roe v. Wade, they’ll claim, denies a woman her “sacred” constitutional right to kill the baby whom she acted to make.  And stoke unrest — belligerent protests and, perhaps, havoc — hoping voters will cast ballots for Democrats to sue for peace.  Security fencing has already gone up around the Supreme Court.  Protests materialized there instantly.

Remember when Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer made this threat about abortion cases coming before SCOTUS?

I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

On Tuesday, Schumer’s remarks made it clear that Democrats intend to turn Court decision ending Roe against Republicans.  Schumer branded the Court’s conservatives as “extremists” and “far right.”  From Fox News, May 3:

Make no mistake, the blame for this decision falls squarely on Republican senators and the Senate Republicans as a whole, who spent years pushing extremist judges, spent years confirming three far right justices to the Supreme Court, but who claimed somehow this day would never come[.] … But this day has come and we will fight it all the way.

Democrats won’t just make life hell for the justices who strike down Roe and for Republicans.  They’ll make hell for the rest of America to demonstrate that opposing “progressive” aims comes with heavy costs.  Civil unrest related to Roe v. Wade might broaden out.  We may see mobs materialize to oppose a range of conservative positions (guns, climate, school sex indoctrination) and notable persons (Trump and DeSantis).      

Alito’s opinion, if issued, won’t end ghoulish abortion on demand in America.  It’ll simply devolve the issue to the states.  As was the case pre–Roe v. Wade, states will craft their own laws on abortion.  Federalism at work translates to state-based abortion laws that may impose prohibitions or restrictions or permit unfettered abortion.  But facts don’t matter to Democrats, who’ve turned against our founding, becoming, to varying degrees, Leninists.
