Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said overturning Roe v. Wade is a "crisis of our democracy" on Sunday, claiming the Supreme Court has "dramatically overreached its authority."

In referring to what the Democratic Party and President Joe Biden can do in response to the Supreme Court's ruling, including the prospect of opening healthcare clinics on federal lands in red states, Ocasio-Cortez also raised questions regarding individual justices themselves during an appearance on NBC's Meet the Press.

"We had two conservative senators in the United States Senate, Sen. Manchin and Sen. Collins, come out with a very explosive allegation that these — that several Supreme Court justices misled them in their — during their confirmation hearings and in the lead-up to their confirmation," Ocasio-Cortez said. "This is a crisis of legitimacy. We have a Supreme Court justice whose wife participated in Jan. 6 and who used his seat to vote against providing documents that potentially led to evidence of such to investigators in Congress. This is a crisis of legitimacy, and President Biden must address that."

Ocasio-Cortez also claimed that impeachment could be possible for any of the Supreme Court justices who lied under oath when they were confirmed and that there should be consequences "for such a deeply destabilizing action and a hostile takeover of our democratic institutions." She added that a justice not disclosing income from political organizations, "as Clarence Thomas did years ago," could also be an impeachable offense.

Several liberal lawmakers, including Ocasio-Cortez, appeared at the Supreme Court on Friday after Roe v. Wade was overturned. Protesters renewed calls to codify abortion rights and expand the court.

Biden claimed during a speech on Friday that "Roe is on the ballot" in the 2022 midterm elections, and he promised to protect the ability to travel to seek an abortion, calling it “a bedrock right.” The President said he would do “everything in [his] power to fight” such restrictions.

At a protest in Union Square on Friday evening, the congresswoman called the White House to open abortion clinics on federal grounds to ensure access to abortion with the nationwide right overturned after nearly 50 years.

“There are also actions at President Biden’s disposal that he can mobilize,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I’ll start with the babiest of the babiest of baby steps: Open abortion clinics on federal lands in red states right now."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) also posed the idea during a news conference earlier in the day, just hours after the Supreme Court ruling Friday in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

“[Biden should] explore just how much we can start using federal lands as a way to protect people who need access to abortions in all the states that either have banned abortions or are clearly on the threshold of doing so,” Warren told reporters. “There is much we can do at the federal level administratively under current law. We need to do it.”
