Actor Rosanna Arquette claimed over the weekend to know the real motivation behind the U.S. Supreme Court decision depicted in the leaked draft opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.
The “Ray Donovan” star insisted she is not “hysterical or alarmist” for believing the justices seeking to overturn the precedent established in 1973 by Roe v. Wade “will traffic babies that many women can’t afford to keep,” even calling them “officially the satanic force.”
As CBN’s Faithwire has reported, Arquette’s out-there claim comes days after a leaked document showed the high court is poised to rule in favor of a Mississippi law prohibiting abortion after 15 weeks. Justice Samuel Alito wrote the draft opinion and, if finalized, it would overturn the precedent set by Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
“Get your boots off our wombs,” Arquette tweeted when the draft opinion was first leaked.

In a subsequent post, she maligned Justice Brett Kavanaugh, describing him as a “slimy drunk rapist,” referring to his contentious confirmation hearing in 2018, when Democratic lawmakers accused him of sexual assault.
Arquette furthermore argued President Joe Biden needs to pack the Supreme Court with progressive justices.
Arquette is far from alone in offering hyperbolic rhetoric in the wake of the leaked Dobbs opinion.
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) claimed last week, for example, that Republicans “won’t stop with banning abortion” but also want to outlaw “interracial marriage.” Democratic strategist Paul Begala echoed those comments Friday on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” telling HBO host Bill Maher the “rationale” behind the Supreme Court draft opinion could be used to ban interracial marriage.
Maher, for his part, reminded Begala that Justice Clarence Thomas, who is black, is married to a white woman.
Others, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), were very visibly upset by the draft opinion. A very livid Warren seemed to be on the verge of tears during one interaction with reporters. She told pro-abortion protesters they “are gonna fight back” against conservatives working to protect the unborn.
