Roe vs Wade Decision (Draft) Leaked

Politico ran their  bombshell report yesterday on the forthcoming Roe Vs Wade decision

Here’s their introduction to what has been determined as the first time ever a decision has been leaked from the court


Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Justice Alito writes in an initial majority draft circulated inside the court.

The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO.

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 Parenthood v. Casey — that largely maintained the right. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he writes in the document, labeled as the “Opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Everything I Was Told About Roe v. Wade Was A Lie

The leaked Justice Alito draft in Dobbs proves it: I was being lied to.

I was told that there was no way the Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade.

I mean, first of all Professor Chua assured me that Justice Kavanaugh is a mentor to women. He wouldn’t do that, would he? Justice Kavanaugh himself assured us.  “In each case, I have followed the law. I do not decide cases based on personal or policy preferences. I am not a pro-plaintiff or pro-defendant judge. I am not a pro-prosecution or pro-defense judge. I am a pro-law judge.” He is an independent, impartial judge.  He said so.

“Last night’s stunning breach was an attack on the independence of the Supreme Court,” the Kentucky Republican said in a statement Tuesday morning.
