Actress Busy Philipps said during the pro-abortion rally she is proud of the abortion she had when she was 15-years-old because it enabled her to have her career and she will not stay quiet about it.
The rally was in opposition of the case the Supreme Court was hearing about a law in Louisiana requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges to local hospitals.
"There I was sitting in Los Angeles in my beautiful office of my own late-night talk show. Soon I would be driving my hybrid to my beautiful f**king home to kiss my beautiful and healthy children and my husband, who had taken the year off to parent so I could focus on my career, and I have all of this! All of it! Because, because, because I was allowed bodily autonomy at 15," she screamed.
"I will not be shamed into being quiet. We will not be shamed into being quiet. Never again! will never stop talking about my abortion or my periods or my experiences in childbirth, my episiotomies, my yeast infections, or my ovulation that lines up with the moon," she continued to scream.
During the same rally, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) specifically threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, "I want to tell you Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch: You have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price."
After a wave of backlash, Schumer backtracked and blamed Republicans for "manufacturing outrage."
"Now, I should not have used the words I used yesterday. They didn’t come out the way I intended to. My point was that there would be political consequences, political consequences for President Trump and Senate Republicans if the Supreme Court, with the newly confirmed justices, stripped away a woman’s right to choose," Schumer explained. "Of course I didn’t intend to suggest anything other than political and public opinion consequences for the Supreme Court, and it is a gross distortion to imply otherwise. I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language."
