Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, R-N.Y. ripped into Republicans for remaining silent on “extreme anti-abortion” bills.

Schumer’s comments came Tuesday in a tweet.

He wrote: “Republicans are playing a cynical long game here: They refuse to comment on extreme anti-abortion bills, but are content to install anti-choice judges across the federal bench who may ultimately be responsible for upholding those very same laws.”

Schumer attached a video of a speech on the Senate floor, where he added: “Over the last year, women’s reproductive rights have come under a new level of assault. From Alabama to Missouri to Texas to Georgia and beyond, over 300 new restrictions have been proposed in 39 states.”

Schumer maintained these restrictions “fly in the face of public opinion.”
