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.

By JOSH GERSTEIN and ALEXANDER WARD

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.”

Deliberations on controversial cases have in the past been fluid. Justices can and sometimes do change their votes as draft opinions circulate and major decisions can be subject to multiple drafts and vote-trading, sometimes until just days before a decision is unveiled. The court’s holding will not be final until it is published, likely in the next two months.

The immediate impact of the ruling as drafted in February would be to end a half-century guarantee of federal constitutional protection of abortion rights and allow each state to decide whether to restrict or ban abortion. It’s unclear if there have been subsequent changes to the draft.

No draft decision in the modern history of the court has been disclosed publicly while a case was still pending. The unprecedented revelation is bound to intensify the debate over what was already the most controversial case on the docket this term.

The draft opinion offers an extraordinary window into the justices’ deliberations in one of the most consequential cases before the court in the last five decades. Some court-watchers predicted that the conservative majority would slice away at abortion rights without flatly overturning a 49-year-old precedent. The draft shows that the court is looking to reject Roe’s logic and legal protections.

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
Justice Samuel Alito in an initial draft majority opinion
A person familiar with the court’s deliberations said that four of the other Republican-appointed justices – Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – had voted with Alito in the conference held among the justices after hearing oral arguments in December, and that line-up remains unchanged as of this week.

The three Democratic-appointed justices – Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan – are working on one or more dissents, according to the person. How Chief Justice John Roberts will ultimately vote, and whether he will join an already written opinion or draft his own, is unclear.

The document, labeled as a first draft of the majority opinion, includes a notation that it was circulated among the justices on Feb. 10. If the Alito draft is adopted, it would rule in favor of Mississippi in the closely watched case over that state’s attempt to ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

A Supreme Court spokesperson declined to comment or make another representative of the court available to answer questions about the draft document.

POLITICO received a copy of the draft opinion from a person familiar with the court’s proceedings in the Mississippi case along with other details supporting the authenticity of the document. The draft opinion runs 98 pages, including a 31-page appendix of historical state abortion laws. The document is replete with citations to previous court decisions, books and other authorities, and includes 118 footnotes.
The appearances and timing of this draft are consistent with court practice.

The disclosure of Alito’s draft majority opinion – a rare breach of Supreme Court secrecy and tradition around its deliberations – comes as all sides in the abortion debate are girding for the ruling. Speculation about the looming decision has been intense since the December oral arguments indicated a majority was inclined to support the Mississippi law.

Under longstanding court procedures, justices hold preliminary votes on cases shortly after argument and assign a member of the majority to write a draft of the court’s opinion. The draft is often amended in consultation with other justices, and in some cases the justices change their votes altogether, creating the possibility that the current alignment on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization could change.

The chief justice typically assigns majority opinions when he is in the majority. When he is not, that decision is typically made by the most senior justice in the majority.

It should be overturned.

Abortion is mentioned nowhere in the US Constitution. Therefore according to the 9th and 10th Amendments, it is a matter for The States and The People to decide.

The leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion on Roe is a dangerous obstruction of justice. And it could very well lead to intimidation and violence directed at Supreme Court justices. Which, I suspect, is the point of the criminal leak.

The alleged leak of the opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is nothing short of breathtaking. It would constitute one of the greatest breaches of security in the history of the Court.

...If this is a true copy of the draft opinion it is hard not to view this as a malicious act. What is the motivation of releasing such a decision? The only intent of such a leak is to trigger a response from outside of the Court.

@JonathanTurley

...This draft is from February and the majority can shift on such opinions. However, the act of leaking such a draft opinion ranks as an original sin for judicial ethics.

Ethics left a awhile ago...states should decide.
So, go to left coast, NY, ILL, NM, CONN...all the usual suspects. But, will have to live there 2 years, hold a job, YOU pay for it and are only allowed 1, get pregnant again, you birth it, and right after, your tubes are tied.

This strikes me as a careless assumption by whoever is publishing it. Might there not also be a draft opinion by the other side and the vote hasn't happened yet? Not to insinuate that the press might be careless or anything like that.

If they end RvW won't it be up to the States to decide?

Whoever leaked it should go to jail for a long time.
Memories of Seth Rich come to mind... there has to be a digital trail for nearly 100 pages....

Why would someone leak this at this point?

Well, there's nothing like poking a hornets nest just before the midterms.

The demoncrats were about to get their asses handed to them. There's only one thing that will rally the Dems base, abortion.

I would venture a guess that the left could only look at this decision being the ONLY way that they could possibly salvage their position of power.

Purely speculative, but I would guess that it's not too far off.

U.S. Marshals service is going to get a lot of overtime protecting the judges, every crack pot will be looking to take a shot at them.

Personally, I look at the decision, based on the actual Constitution, as being something the federal government should never have been involved in. States rights is very overlooked.

Take how much they Trump and multiply by how much they hate Elon and double it

Hope it doesn’t influence any vote changes like that wuss Roberts who allowed the also unconstitutional Obama care to sneak by

Thank Cyrus Trump for saving babies versus the infanticide loving Baal worshiping demoncrats. May they and there base get what they will deserve. How far has the majority of left gone will be the only question.

Is this the ember to start a Civil War in the United States?
It deranged lunatics start a war in order to justify killing babies I don't think we're going to have any problems aside from acquiring the energy/fuel sufficient to burn their corpses.

Democrats might urge Congress to pass a bill codifying Roe v. Wade into law...?

MSM is running with the story as well:

They want the rioting SOOooo...BAD.

It serves them so many ways. First, pushes us closer to that Utopia of complete collapse - the Grate Reset. Second, it puts the fear of Gaia into the hearts of the Stuporemes. Roberts, especially, is practiced in changing his vote in mid-opinion-writing; witness, the Obamacare challenge.

Third, this validates the "input" of these political radicals who slither into trusted positions and then flagrantly abuse their trust. Billions of dollars in property will be destroyed in the riots that Georg Soros is sending money to pay for, right now; and probably dozens of lives.

All because some law-school coed had a fantasy of being a Real Revolutionary - and violated trusts and her agreements in that clerking position.

It’s impossible to overstate how significant the leak of a draft Supreme Court ruling is.

It would be equivalent to a U.S. General coordinating with communist China’s military, for example by promising to give China advance notice of military actions.

NOW - Barricades are up setup around the U.S. Supreme Court building after a draft decision was leaked indicating that the court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The entire point of the Kavanaugh circus 3 years ago was because of the rabid Left's absolute determination to keep Roe v. Wade from ever being overturned.

Of course they're going to cheat and pull every freaking dirty trick they can to try to stave off this vote.



[Forwarded from Jack Posobiec]
They are going to throw everything they have at these 5 patriot justices defending the children

The next 2 months will be like nothing we’ve ever seen

If you thought Kavanaugh was bad you haven’t seen a thing

The anti-human forces will be activated like never before



The Biden White House is gonna completely botch it's handling of this unprecedented leak from inside the Supreme Court.

Watch it unfold.
