A woman’s march protesting the right to have an abortion was held on June 6th, 2021

In a leaked Supreme Court opinion draft published by Politico on Monday, the court will allegedly rule to overturn Roe v. Wade. The draft was written by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito jr. in February 2022. According to the 98-page document released by Politico it states that “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.” No draft decision from a Supreme Court has ever been released before the case was still ongoing according to Politico 

According to Politico, most of the court ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade, a Supreme Court ruling that makes abortion legal up until the second trimester of a women’s pregnancy. While this is not a final decision the leaked document may provide insight into the court’s official decision. 

This is a developing story, and more details are to come.
