House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Monday lauded protesters expressing "righteous anger" in the wake of a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that shows the court may be poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. 

"While we have seen and heard extraordinary anguish in our communities," Pelosi, D-Calif., said, "we have been moved by how so many have channeled their righteous anger into meaningful action: planning to march and mobilize to make their voices heard."

In the statement, Pelosi also attacked Republicans and the Supreme Court over the expected ruling, and says that Democrats will "fight relentlessly to enshrine Roe v. Wade as the law of the land."

"Republicans have made clear that their goal will be to seek to criminalize abortion nationwide," Pelosi said. "Republican state legislators across the country are already advancing extreme new laws, seeking to arrest doctors for offering reproductive care, ban abortion entirely with no exceptions, and even charge women with murder who exercise their right to choose."

Pelosi's statement comes just two days before the Senate is set to take a procedural vote on a bill that would codify abortion protections at a federal level, superseding any state laws on the matter. But the bill is almost certain not to pass, as Republicans oppose it and in the 50-50 Senate, Democrats don't have the votes to break a filibuster.
