SCOTUS Prepared to Overturn Roe v. Wade Shows Leaked Documents


Shockwaves can be felt around the country, as bombshell report obtained by Politico on Monday shows that the Supreme Court is prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade. If the court ruling is overturned abortion will immediately become illegal in at least 13 states.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” states the draft decision authored by Justice Samuel Alito. “We can only do our job, which is to interpret the law, apply longstanding principles of stare decisis, and decide this case accordingly. We therefore hold that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives.”

Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett reportedly joined Alito in striking down the previous court ruling.

The leak of the report marks a historic change in precedent for the Supreme Court, which historically has never leaked a court decision prior to its public disclosure. The leak is expected to open the door to a tsunami of pressure delivered by both sides of aisle to uphold or abandon the decision outlined in the leaked reports.
