CNN’s Chris Cuomo bashed pro-lifers on national TV in a race-crazed rant about the newest case taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court examining if a Mississippi ban on elective abortions 15 weeks into pregnancy is unconstitutional.
“We’re about to see if Mitch McConnell’s Supreme Court mission pays off,” Cuomo said on his program Monday night. “It’s now a 6-3 decidedly conservative court, and now says the Supreme Court of the United States that it will hear a case that could remove a woman’s right to control her own body.”
Fredo suggests being pro-life is about being pro-racism and Jim Crow: "It's about dividing lines, legislating to the far-right white-fright vote (…) It's just like voting rights in one way."

Cuomo, the same hypocritical anchor who spewed leftist rhetoric about “following the science” when it came to COVID-19, tried to tout “science” as a defining factor in the argument for abortion and claimed pro-life activists consistently choose to ignore it.
“Legally, the issue is fetal viability. When does what is inside a woman become a person with rights under the law? You would think we would have impaneled experts on a special commission by now to see what the science says, right? But we don’t seem to have the intellectual curiosity about this issue because it’s not really about science,” Cuomo said. “It has become a culture war. It’s a political lever to use as a distraction from policy and solving problems, to allow people to get up in their religion and their righteousness over any sense of what science suggests.”
While Cuomo conceded that scientific data “may be moving the point of viability well short of what it was assumed to be in 1973 with Roe v. Wade,” he dragged race into his rant to perpetuate lies about the pro-life community.
“Most Americans want the court to uphold Roe v. Wade, which found women have liberty over their own body as a right to privacy, a privacy right under the 14th Amendment: 62 uphold, 24 overturn,” Cuomo explained. “But again, it’s not about science or consensus. It’s about dividing lines legislating to the far-right, white-fright vote. Flooding the zone with 536 bills that abridge a woman’s right to control her own body in 46 states. It’s just like voting rights in one way. You see, it seems like the far-right only cares about protecting humans before they are born.”
Cuomo is no stranger to insulting his opponents. In October of last year, Cuomo smeared Christians in an attempt to take political shots at Justice Amy Coney Barrett for her faith that is “more central to her value system and her behavior and thoughts than it would be for just an ordinary Catholic.” He also joked around with his brother Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York on CNN about COVID-19 while thousands of nursing home patients in the Empire State died under a fatal policy that the governor’s administration tried to cover up.
