Leaked Supreme Court Draft: Nothing But Right-Wing Politics Masquerading as Law

“Late Monday night, a leaked version of the draft of the major­ity decision in Dobbs v. Jack­son Women’s Health Organ­iz­a­tion was made public. We now know that the Supreme Court will over­rule the long­stand­ing preced­ents of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parent­hood v. Casey. When the final decision is issued, there will no longer be a feder­ally guar­an­teed right to abor­tion in Amer­ica for the first time in nearly 50 years. Among the ways Ms. has been report­ing on this over the Court’s term, we partnered with the Bren­nan Center for Justice at NYU Law last fall to create Abor­tion Is Essen­tial to Demo­cracy, a series of essays that reflect on the myriad demo­cratic dysfunc­tions that have helped erode abor­tion rights in Amer­ica.” (05/02/22)
