Leaked SCOTUS Draft Shows Roe V Wade Overturned

Abortion is the number 1 commandment of the Democratic Party. It rises above all else. So, this is making them nuts already

What happens if Roe v. Wade is overturned? What we know about Supreme Court’s leaked draft

Politico reported Monday night that it had obtained a draft opinion suggesting the U.S. Supreme Court is considering a ruling that would overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a constitutional right to abortion.

The leak itself is highly unusual: While court deliberations have leaked before, including during President Richard Nixon’s administration, the release of a draft opinion is virtually unprecedented.

Politico said the draft was circulated in February, about two months after oral arguments. A Supreme Court spokeswoman declined to comment. Several legal experts consulted by USA TODAY said the leaked draft ruling has all the hallmarks of being accurate. Politico said a majority of justices supported the ruling.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the draft obtained by Politico. “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.”

The question now is “do any of the justices change their minds before the final ruling?” You always have to worry about Chief Justice Roberts, who can be rather squishy.

What will happen if Roe v. Wade is overturned? What states will ban abortion?

If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, states would be free to make abortion illegal. Nearly half of the states in the country already have laws in place that would take effect immediately upon the Supreme Court ruling. Another 16 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws explicitly protecting abortion rights in case Roe v. Wade is overturned, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive rights research and policy organization.

As it should be. This should be a States’ Rights issue.

Abortion-rights activists say banning abortions will hurt people of color the hardest. People of color have abortions at the highest rates in the nation and so these Americans will likely have the hardest time finding ways to get rid of unwanted pregnancies or to raise children they cannot afford or didn’t want.

In other words, white Democrats are the same old black people haters that the party has been since the Civil War. Why do they want black people to abort their babies at such high rates? Has the Democratic Party ever considered enlightening people to use contraception, rather than irresponsible sex followed by an abortion?

Democrats are, of course, not taking this well

Democrats condemn Supreme Court abortion draft as ‘abomination,’ urge Congress to codify Roe v. Wade

Democrats urged Congress to pass a bill codifying Roe v. Wade in response to the alleged draft of a forthcoming Supreme Court opinion striking down the 1973 precedent on abortion.

“If the report is accurate, the Supreme Court is poised to inflict the greatest restriction of rights in the past fifty years – not just on women but on all Americans,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a joint statement Monday.

Abortion doesn’t appear anywhere in the Constitution, and Roe is considered to be one of the worst legal Supreme Court rulings of all time. But, hey, you try and get that passed, and you’ll get even more lawsuits based on the 10th Amendment. Now, they could pass a law making it legal on federal land and having abortion facilities on federal property, which, of course, could change based on which party is in charge of the White House.

“The Republican-appointed Justices’ reported votes to overturn Roe v. Wade would go down as an abomination, one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history,” Pelosi and Schumer added.

So, ending the notion of killing the unborn is the abomination? These people are insane.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., also called for a law codifying Roe, blaming Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. for blocking the move.

“As we’ve warned, SCOTUS isn’t just coming for abortion – they’re coming for the right to privacy Roe rests on, which includes gay marriage + civil rights,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Manchin is blocking Congress codifying Roe. House has seemingly forgotten about Clarence Thomas. These 2 points must change.”

That’s a pretty big stretch, but, AOC is even more nuts than most Democrats.

This leak has has displaced everything else on the front pages of news outlets. The NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, ABC News, you name it, they’re all leading with the leak. Ukraine and everything else has been relegated to lower articles and opinions. Much like COVID. And it will continue till the ruling is released. It’ll be non-stop articles, analysis, editorials, and opinion till that day, and then for long after.

    Banning abortion is the raison d’etre of the christian conservative movement. This has been a long time coming, with the American right shrewdly building a Supreme Court for the soul reason of banning abortion, The poor libs are soooo naive.

    This is the second shot in the war against Americans (the first was the tRump’s and the GOP’s failed coup a failure that the GOP is “fixing” state by state!). Two-thirds of Americans favor keeping abortion legal, but this is how an authoritarian minority rules.

    If the leak is true, the right has given Dem voters motivation, but red state voter suppression actions may make that moot. GOPhers are ruthless!! Kudos, fascists!!

    • Dana says:

      Something on the order of fifty million Americans have been murdered by abortion, but the distinguished Mr dOwd stated that banning the procedure which killed those 50 million children is a “war against Americans.”

  2. Professor Hale says:

    Roe did not create a Constitutional right to abortion. It recognized a constitutional right to privacy that extended to the medical domain. The ACA, supported by every democrat in congress, ended any notion of medical privacy with mandatory reporting to the government on all medical matters. Further killed off with Covid medical mandates demanding all employees report their vax status to employers, including contractors, again with total unreserved support of every elected democrat in the country. If they really wanted to save Roe, they should have held firm on privacy.

    I just wonder why Democrats haven’t made abortions mandatory in black and immigrant neighborhoods. Lease the school nurses offices to planned parenthood and bill medicaid.

  3. Hairy says:

    Abortion is legal in Israel
    They wrote the Bible
    The Trial by Bitter Herbs in the Bible gives an example of abortion

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Abortion is legal in a lot of places. That’s not the point.

      BTW, Israel did not write the Bible. But I am amused you now find the Bible to be your remedy for sin. Good for you little fella. Are we to infer from this that you now agree with the Bible?

  4. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    QdOwd, your constant projection of your party’s own proclivities notwithstanding no one is “banning abortion”. You constantly claim to stand for “democracy” (spit) but only when you agree with the outcome. Hence your hypocrisy.

    While the “Christian conservative movement” (if there is such a thing other than that dreamed up by leftists) may be banning abortion but the wider, broader, more rational Americans are not for banning abortion. They are for banning unconstitutional laws like RvW. Abortion not being mentioned in the constitution is rightfully, honestly and legally the purview of the states. Each state should have the democratic (spit) ability to vote on their own.

    The very idea that you and people like you deem it your desire to force everyone in every state to abide by your version of abortion is very, very undemocratic (spit).

    Americans should have a choice. At least more of a choice than unborn American children are given by racist democrat/communists.

    The democrat/communist party has gone completely off the reservation and has embraced every tenet of total fascism history provides. QdOwd being a precise example of the type of inhuman they want in charge. No rights, not even to life. Treating woman like slaves not even allowing them to have dominion over their own sports. Keeping blacks in crime ridden drug filled ghettos, overturning the basis of the Supreme Court through illegal leaks and innuendo.

    The left and the Qdowdists need to be eliminated from America and our institutions. They have polluted and demeaned them long enough. They have kept their boot on the face of patriots and freedom long enough. They have perverted the law and the constitution long enough.

    They need to be expelled from the USA since living with them is impossible. The next election (if they don’t steal that one too) will show whether that will be a peaceful or bloody expulsion.

    FJB, all the commies and QdOwdists and their hateful murdering bigots. Oh, and the schvartze too.

  5. Dana says:

    If this draft opinion truly reflects the decision of the Court, we need to give thanks exactly where it is due: to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who, as Majority Leader at the time, prevented a vote which would have elevated Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. This allowed President Trump to instead appoint Neil Gorsuch, one of the (reported) 5-4 majority which overrules Roe v Wade.

    When Senator McConnell took his decision, it was not at all clear that a Republican would win the 2016 election. The odious Hillary Clinton was the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party, though Bernie Sanders was still making inroads, and Donald Trump was throwing the orderly Republican nomination process into chaos. Every poll, every poll, concluded that Mrs Clinton would solidly defeat Mr Trump if that was how the November contest would be held. If that turned out to be the case, the (purportedly) more moderate Judge Garland would be replaced as nominee by a really flaming hard leftist like, oh, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

    Even if Mrs Clinton would simply have renewed the appointment of Judge Garland, were he on the Supreme Court he would have voted to uphold Roe.

    Senator McConnell placed a serious bet, against the odds, and he won; he filled an inside straight, when the safe bet would have been to fold.

    • Elwood P. dOwd says:

      Mitch the Bitch risked little – allow Judge Garland’s nomination or put it off in the hopes that Clinton might lose. His only risk was in being called a hypocritical asswipe.

      And then the asswipe finagled the nomination of Judge Barrett with only weeks left in in DonJontRumPutin’s term, taking the oath AFTER lameduck tRumPutin was defeated. So yes, Mitch the Bitch is a largely responsible for the ongoing destruction of America.

      We are under no illusion that the pollyannish Dems can take advantage of this gift from the supreme court and win seats in 2022, but their chances just improved. If they win they have no choice but to kill the filibuster and pack the court to save our Democratic Constitutional Republic from the you fascists. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    So, ending the notion of killing the unborn is the abomination? These people are insane.

    Yes, they are!

    There are two people involved in every abortion: the pregnant woman, who can walk and talk and vote, and the unborn child, wholly dependent upon his mother and who has no voice which can be heard. The Democrats have placed their bets on the one who can vote.

  7. Professor Hale says:

    The right answer for this issue is that the medical boards of the various states should regulate the practice of medicine in their states, as they are empowered to do by law and just as they do for all other medical procedures. It is absurd that abortions are a separate category of medicine, exempt from all other medical safeguards and systemic oversight. If this were to happen, abortions would be legal in all 50 states since the AMA in every state is overwhelmingly liberal. But that is the right, rational way for this to work. Anything else is political pandering.

  8. Professor Hale says:

    I do find this a surprising vote. Roberts can usually be counted on to find a “divide the baby” solution and normally sides with letting things stay the way they are, even if based on bad legal foundations.

    • Dana says:

      We don’t know, but it appears that the Chief Justice was on the losing side of a 5-4 decision. If he was in the majority, he would be the one assigning the decision, and he would have assigned it to himself, to tailor it as narrowly as possible. The decision being assigned to Justice Alito, one of the hardest of hard liners, rather than someone like Justice Kavanaugh, almost certainly means that the Chief Justice was not involved.

      With the Chief Justice not the one assigning the decision, that goes to the senior member in the majority, which would be Justice Thomas.

  9. Elwood P. dOwd says:

    bRandon typed: Abortion doesn’t appear anywhere in the Constitution

    Neither does same-sex marriage or contraception. Are these next for this far-right court? Line ’em up and shoot ’em down!!

    This is how a minority fascist movement rules!! It’s all about CONTROL!

    Buckle up!

    • The seemingly agitated Mr dOwd wrote:

      Neither does same-sex marriage or contraception. Are these next for this far-right court? Line ’em up and shoot ’em down!!

      Homosexual ‘marriage’ should be eliminated, but there is no support for banning non-abortifacient contraception. I haven’t heard of a single Republican officeholder who has expressed a desire to do so.

      The far left, frequently personified by Amanda Marcotte, have been claiming that conservatives want to ban contraception, but when she tried to cite facts to support her case, she was only able to come up with Quiverfull, a fairly small conservative Christian philosophy. One 2006 estimate put the number of families which subscribe to this philosophy as ranging from “the thousands to the low tens of thousands.”

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        The nuRadical left in America is propelled in their unholy endeavors by hyperbole, deception, hysteria and lies. Not a good mix for serious policy decisions. Chief among these harbingers of grift and treason is QdOwd. He believes every single lie and propaganda promoted from his comrades on the far, far left. Even that men can have babies or wish themselves to become women. This is they type of fool that warns us to “follow the science” when talking Climate or Covid.


      • Model 870 P. dOwd says:

        The satisfied Mx Dana ignores that over 75% of Americans support Roe v Wade, and 70% support same-sex marriage.

        The American right is just getting warmed up!

        More than 75% of Americans support contraception and a clear majority support FREE contraception!

        Are you really claiming in this instance that the Court should follow the polls, but not for Roe v Wade or same-sex marriage?

        Some methods of “contraception” inhibit the implantation of a zygote (baby). Would you agree that these methods are murder and should all be banned? IUDs, Cu-IUDs, most birth control pills, morning after pills, progestin implants… leaving condoms and diaphragms and sterilization (female and male). Women rarely become pregnant on their own! Should we mandate that all men undergo a reversible vasectomy at puberty and require a court order when their wife agrees that they want a baby to revers it?

        Seems to us that that would nearly eliminate unwanted pregnancies and abortion.

        Supporting widespread contraception, wealth and income equity, public education, public healthcare would also reduce abortions.

        It’s a fact that conservative christians have little concern for babies and children but do have concern over controlling women. If one of your wife’s lovers impregnates her, the last thing a conservative christian wants is for her to avail herself of an abortion without you knowing!! It’s threatening enough that she can be taking oral contraceptives!

        Welcome to the Republic of Gilead!

        If Congress passes a bill confirming a woman’s right to an abortion would this zoopreme court declare it unconstitutional?

        • The somewhat calmer Mr dOwd wrote:

          The satisfied Mx Dana ignores that over 75% of Americans support Roe v Wade, and 70% support same-sex marriage.

          That simply means that 75% and 70% of Americans, respectively, are both wrong and immoral.

          There was a time that a majority of Americans supported slavery. There was a time when it wasn’t illegal for a teacher to copulate with a student.

          Of course, since black women have abortions at five times the rate of white women, I can see why the left support abortion; fewer Negroes around than there would have been!

          • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

            QdOwd states: “The satisfied Mx Dana ignores that over 75% of Americans support Roe v Wade, and 70% support same-sex marriage.”

            First I don’t believe those figures any more than I believe we have 8.5% inflation under the nit-wit brandon. I really don’t know where Qdowd gets his silly numbers from but obviously they have a vested interest in leftist disinformation.

            Depending how the question is phrased the numbers vary from; “Do you agree with killing babies” coming in at 20% support (democommies all) to Should all abortion be illegal coming in around 80% same loons.

            When asked should abortion be safe, legal and rare the country is about 50/50. So there’s that.

            I wasn’t aware legalizing fag and dyke perversion was up for question. Musta missed it.

            Anyway, FJB and all you killer/groomer perverts who support him.

    • .38 Police Special Elwood P. dOwd says:

      It’s interesting that nuCons find eliminating a right from 50% of Americans is entertaining.

      But this is consistent with the nuCon modus operandi to “own the libs”.

      Fortunately, your delight will be countered by millions of motivated Dem voters come November!

      Do you think the “draft” was leaked by a liberal clerk?

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        QdOwd queried (little play) “Do you think the “draft” was leaked by a liberal clerk?”

        Of course it was. No real American patriot who loves our country would deliberately undermine the Supreme Court and try and steal a decision. Only leftists do that. We take this as a tacit admission the stole the election since they can’t resist cheating even with our laws and courts.

        BTW, if you love abortion so much why are you so fukin’ afraid to put it up for a vote? If 75% of Americans agree with RvW there should be no contest. So you’re scared and a liar too.

        FJB and all you liars.

        • Model 870 P. dOwd says:

          Mx Lying Groooomer Brandon wants to put abortion to a vote! How will he/she do that? We would love to put it to a vote!! It’s the conservative christian fascists who want to ban abortion. Even in deep red Oklahoma over 50% of voters support Roe v Wade.

          As you’ve pointed out America is a Democratic Constitutional Republic not a direct democracy.

          It’s instructive that the GPP (Groooming Pedophile Party aka GOP) would force a 13 yr old incest victim to risk her life carrying a baby to term.

          Why conservative christians insist on protecting the parental rights of rapists needs to be explained.

            When I say put it to a vote I mean turn it to the states since that’s where it should always have been. It’s not a federal issue. It is not a right . You ignorant cunt.

            You’re always screaming for a democracy but when I say put your money where your lying mouth is you switch sides. Just like you did with “my body my choice” until I refused to get a vax then suddenly I was enemy #1 and it wasn’t “my body” any more.

            You’re all unethical, lying perverts. All you care about is killing babies and grooming children. OH, and killing Ukrainians.

            I really can’t believe you dems have so little respect for America you would betray the SC as well as legal integrity. You’re all filthy power mad animals. You should all be shipped to China with the rest of the tyrants.

            FU pervert. And your faggot president.

      • UnkleC says:

        Personally, I find the reaction of lefties is quite entertaining.
        Since the issue was not a ‘right’, SCOTUS does not establish ‘rights’. Congress could propose an amendment to the constitution, pass it, the states could then ratify the amendment, and then the primary sacrament of the left would be codified as a right.
        Myself, I think the issue is for the mother [assuming she is of legal age], her baby daddy, her holy person, and her medicine person to decide. Providing her state allows it.

        • CarolAnn says:

          So the “decision” is for everyone but the baby that will be killed. Interesting take.

          • UnkleC says:

            CarolAnn, I understand and appreciate your position, however, it does present a conundrum. It is unfortunate that a segment of our population has forced the issue to this point.
            May the peace of the Lord be with you.

            A person called Amit Jain clerks for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

            As a Yale student, Jain blasted Yale for supporting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

            Jain was quoted in a 2017 Politico piece by Josh Gerstein.

            Today, Gerstein published the draft SCOTUS opinion on Roe.

I hear the Ghost shot down 200 Russian MIG’s overnight and the Uke army has so far killed 100,000 Russian troops and 6,000 Russian tanks while only losing 11 men two of which were civilians fighting with pots and pans. How heroic those former (wink) Nazis are.
