Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade published by Politico

There’s been a huge leak from the highest court in the land that has people upset and protesting. The reason is, they learned that the Supreme Court is possibly considering to reverse Roe vs Wade.

Politco published a story of the Supreme Court’s majority draft  opinion signed by Justice Samuel Alito that would overrule the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which gave women the federal constitutional right to an abortion.

According to Politico the draft is not an official ruling as the leaked document was labeled a 1st draft and opinions often change before the final draft which can be expected to come in late June or early July.
Even President Biden spoke on the matter in a written statement he said “If the court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” “And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law.”
Abortion rights is a passionate subject in this country expect to hear a lot more noise about this situation.
