U.S. Supreme Court has voted to strike down Roe vs. Wade

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.

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.

‘Exceptionally weak’
A George W. Bush appointee who joined the court in 2006, Alito argues that the 1973 abortion rights ruling was an ill-conceived and deeply flawed decision that invented a right mentioned nowhere in the Constitution and unwisely sought to wrench the contentious issue away from the political branches of government.

Conservatives aren't interested in democracy they won't care about protest lol.
:yes::yes::yes::yes::yes:

This is what people just don't fucking get.

The dye has been cast. WTF did anybody expect with 6 Catholic zealot freaks on the goddamned court?

Hopefully, this will wake a lot of people up (read: STUPID ASSED WHITE BITCHES THAT KEEP VOTING FOR FUCKING NAZIS!).

If republicans regain power-the house, senate and presidency, or even just the house and senate, we are done.


And for the "both sides are the same" assholes: please accept this "go fuck yourself" in advance.

If true, Blue states are going to be OK. In places where I am like Ohio, women are screwed.
Women and men need to make better choices. Why should the unborn have to suffer?

Most Democrats had zero issue telling everyone what to do with their bodies when it came to COVID-19. Millions of people where given little choice to take experimental drugs.

Catching a virus isnt a death sentence. Abortion is.

Don't be so sure yet...

Unless I am mistaken, the day this goes into effect, at least 24 states have laws on the books already, triggered by the overturn of Roe v. Wade, that will immediately outlaw abortion in said states.

This might be the most batshit anti abortion argument I've ever heard.

If this isnt overturned -- draft opinions aren't necessarily final -- we won't see the fallout from this until 18-20 years down the line. There will be millions of unwanted kids who are grown up and angry with the world. This country is going to be complete shit at that point.
