Federalist: The Supreme Court will overturn the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade in June, Politico reported Monday night.
The Supreme Court will overturn the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade in June, Politico reported Monday night, with an apparent draft of the majority opinion leaked to the beltway magazine. Never before has a full draft opinion been pre-emptively leaked to the press in the modern history of the court, and it was leaked this week for one reason: to incite violence and bully justices into changing their votes.
“The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenhood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right,” Politico reported, with conservative Justice Samuel Alito writing the majority opinion drafted in February.
Draft opinions are not final. Justices can and often do change their minds throughout the writing process. The published opinion in Politico will only add fuel to the fire on one of the most politically sensitive topics in the country. Its premature release designed to place undemocratic pressure on justices to bend their opinion in conformity with loud extremist voices already waging insurrectionist threats on the court. MORE
