Politico Obtains Draft of Supreme Court Majority Opinion, Indicating Potential Reversal of Federal Abortion Law

Consider this sketchy right now.  Politico is reporting they have “obtained” a draft copy of the Supreme Court majority opinion which would reverse Roe -v- Wade federal abortion law and return the decisions on abortion law to the individual states.  {Uploaded Draft pdf Here}

While it is 98-pages, it is only a draft opinion.  The decision of the individual judges could change at any time based on their view of the severity of the outcome, wording and other inputs that would be provided. A draft opinion from internal deliberations has never, ever, been leaked before from inside the supreme court; and that alone should send warning flags to everyone.

Personally, I doubt any draft from February would be pertinent today.  This entire scenario just sounds massively sketchy.

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.”

According to the draft, written by Justice Alito after the February oral arguments in the Dobbs -vs- Jackson’s Women’s Health case, five justices are aligned to overturn the 1973 ruling (Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett); three justices are in dissent (Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan); and Chief Justice John Robert’s position is undetermined.

[…] The document, labeled as a first draft of the majority opinion, includes a notation that it was circulated among the justices on Feb. 10. If the Alito draft is adopted, it would rule in favor of Mississippi in the closely watched case over that state’s attempt to ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

A Supreme Court spokesperson declined to comment or make another representative of the court available to answer questions about the draft document. (read article)

Again, this leak is very sketchy.

Abortion on demand is the holy grail of social policy for the most extreme radical and violent leftists.  If this is a real leak from a staffer inside the Supreme Court, the explosive intent would be to railroad the final decision before it becomes public, and/or create some form of government intervention in congress.
