Piers Morgan says protests after leaked opinion overturning Roe are "not the way a civilized democracy should behave."

Piers Morgan, the English broadcaster, and journalist said that though sentiments were high on both sides regarding Roe v. Wade, it was not the right way to behave.

While speaking on Fox & Friends, the English writer discussed the relevance of the demonstrations outside Supreme Court justices’ homes and churches as a fallout of the draft opinion leak last week.

Morgan criticized the arson attack on the anti-abortion building in Wisconsin. “I think it's completely outrageous, completely unacceptable. This kind of thing is never the right way to behave in a modern democracy - terrorizing people,” he said.

He went on to say that as a non-American he did not want to dictate how people should feel about the law but intimidating the justices and the people was not the right way to reach a consensus.

He claimed the motivation for the leak was not clear yet. It could have been anyone from the left-wing who wanted to stop the anti-abortion bill or someone from the right who wanted to make sure that Roe v. Wade was overturned.
