Apparently, rage and doxxing aren’t really a big deal, as long as it’s for the right reasons. CBS Mornings journalists on Friday interviewed far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren about the Supreme Court potentially overturning Roe, but had no questions for her about riling up a pro-abortion mob. They ignored shocking doxxings of conservative justices by the Supreme Court.
The CBS hosts offered no questions, and barely challenged Warren, despite a nearly six-minute interview. No mention of Warren’s rage-filled screaming to supporters at the Supreme Court: “I am here because I am angry!” No mention of, as National ReviewExplained: A pro-abortion group exposed the addresses of six conservative Supreme Court justices.
Warren allowed the co-hosts to allow him to play the victim of violence and rage. Warren sputtered, “Remember what this opinion is about. It has opened the door to a whole lot of ugliness.” Co-host Tony Dokoupil agreed: “Yeah.”
Here’s the best co-host Nate Burleson could do: “You believe in a woman’s choice no matter how difficult the decision. But there’s a question: should there be any limits on abortions?”
Making it clear where he stands, Dokoupil agreed with Warren’s pro-abortion rants: “An extraordinary thing for a government to tell a person they need to go forward with a pregnancy.”
Concerning the doxxing the six conservatives at the Supreme Court CBS MorningsOn Friday, it was not mentioned. The Thursday issue was not mentioned. Evening News, reporter Ed O’Keefe briefly referenced the threats: “CBS News reports that threats of violence have been made to them. They have had their home addresses shared online and are receiving targeted threats by phone.”

TONY DOKOUPIL – Picture of the Capitol. After a leak of the majority opinion, Elizabeth Warren (Democratic Senator) is calling on the Senate to act to protect abortion rights. This follows the Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark Roe V. Wade abortion rights decision. In her book Persist, now out in paperback, Warren writes, “In the same way that congress passed laws to provide access to health care, think Medicare and Medicaid, Congress should pass a law to protect nationwide access to abortion.” Such a bill would face tough odd passing the senate.” Get Senator Warren Jones now. It is hard to believe that these are possible. Can I do that?
SENATOR ELISABETH WARREN (English):
DOKOUPIL – You do not have the right to vote but you will make every person vote. Why is that necessary?
WARREN: It is our goal to have everyone on record. Most importantly, we must keep in mind who will be affected. This decision will not affect the well-to-do. If they require access to abortion, well-to-do females can fly to another country. This will fall on who? Poor women will be the first to suffer. It will affect women of color. Girls who were molested in their families’ homes by someone else will also be affected. It will fall on those who were raped. This will fall on the mother who has two jobs right now to help support her kids. It’s about protecting the rights of every person in America to decide for herself whether or not they want to have a child.
JERICKA DUNCAN – We saw a screen showing a map that indicated whether or not abortion would be legalized. When you look at some of these states where the numbers are not as high as, you know, the overall nation numbers of at least 60 and sometimes 80 percent where people support this, why not leave it up to the states when you have so many where the numbers may not be that high, and you look at that map and see how many are almost certain to try and get rid of it?
WARREN While I lived in an America that made abortion illegal, it did not mean all abortions were stopped. That did not mean all safe legal abortions had stopped.
My life was shaped by back-alley abortions, where I witnessed women dying in their homes. Unclean abortions caused horrible complications and infections in women. My life was shaped by the fact that young American women preferred to die rather than continue their education.
abortion — with a pregnancy that they could not manage. Let’s face it, laws were passed at the federal level that set the minimum wage and provided access to health insurance. This is not about protecting those with power; it is about protecting all citizens in this country that don’t hold power.
DOKOUPIL. Senator, your statement is accurate. However, there are other states who have stated that they believe in a different principle. The common refrain is that if your state has laws you do not like, you can just leave. You don’t know what to say?
WARREN – We do not allow that anywhere else within our federal government. It doesn’t mean that you should move to another state if the Alabama minimum wage is not what you want. As a nation, we say we care about each other and decide that a given amount of work is worthwhile. On Medicaid we determine that at most the lowest income people will be able to access health care. We decide this for children to make sure that there’s going be to be money — we decide this on food, and we should decide this on this basic health decision that will hit the most vulnerable among us. We feel that we are in states that will not allow this to happen. We can’t ignore the pain of others. Second, think about the purpose of this view. You have opened up the doors to all kinds of cruelty.
WARREN: Opened the door to the question — contraception, criminalizing a woman who seeks an abortion. Is every miscarriage going to be under investigation? Women will be prosecuted if they work too hard and place their baby at risk. If the Supreme Court has their way and we do not fight back at federal level, this is an invasion that could impact every person’s lives.
NATE BURLESON – You are stating now that you believe in women’s right to make their own decisions, no matter what the consequences. There is a problem: Should there be limits to abortions?
WARREN – Her mother, her priest and her rabbi. Her mother, her priest and her rabbi should all be allowed to help her. In a pregnancies, however, it’s not the state’s responsibility to make that decision.
DOKOUPIL: A government telling a pregnant woman they must continue with the pregnancy is an unusual thing to do.
WARREN: That’s right.
DOKOUPIL : It’s all right. We have many more things we can talk about Senator Elizabeth Warren. Come back.
