  • BREAKING: Roe v. Wade overturned by SCOTUS

    UPDATE

    Roe v. Wade is officially overturned by SCOTUS

    ORIGINAL POST

    Looks like abortion will be settled on a state by state level.

    And just like that, the Left knows that men are men, and women are women. The confusion vanished instantly.



    Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows


    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.

      The leaking of this sounds like they are trying to push out the vote for the midterms.

          Good. It was a states' rights issue before the US supreme court decided to make it mandatory for all 50 states. Back then only 2 or 3 states had abortion.

            State by state makes most sense.

                  The problem is many people use abortion as a contraceptive or as the day after pill.

                    I thought Roe vs Wade made sense. There is no telling what hair brain rules will be made by individual states.
