House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reacted to the Supreme Court overturning Roe. V Wade by reading a poem.

I am personally overwhelmed by this decision. From time to time I quote this poem by Ein Li Eretz Acheret

The poem read by Pelosi says:

‘”I have no other country even if my land is burning. Just a word in Hebrew pierces my veins, my soul, in a weak body, in a broken heart. This is my home. I will not stay silent because my country changed her face I will not give up reminding her And sing in her ears she will open her eyes.”

Pelosi said, ‘Clearly, we hoped the Supre Court would open its eyes.’
