The biggest white pill of the year so far has possibly been sabotaged by someone who has leaked the initial draft majority opinion on the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe V. Wade. The initial draft written by Justice Samuel Alito was obtained by POLITICO after circulating the court.

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.

As the article states no draft opinion has ever been leaked in the history of the Supreme Court, which brings up many, many questions. First of all obviously who leaked it, second of all why?

I think we know the second answer the first one though nobody knows, but we need to find out. People on Twitter have already said this person needs to be imprisoned, and found out.

In my opinion, whoever leaked it, should be executed for treason against the United States. This is probably the biggest attack on the Supreme Court I’ve ever heard of, and will forever have an impact on the court and the trust between the judges on the court.

Depending on what happens, and how things unfold, as I tweeted out, this could sabotage the entire vote to overturn Roe V. Wade. The public pressure is now at 100% and I pray that these judges to not give in.

People are already saying that the leaker is a clerk for Justice Sotomayor, a so called “centrist” with liberal inclinations nominated by Obama.

I will of course give updates if I hear anything else either in this article or in a new article.
