Conservatives demand investigation after SCOTUS leak

A leaked report has claimed that the Supreme Court plans to strike down Roe v. Wade, overturning the abortion ruling to allow states to determine abortion laws.

An opinion on the case by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked and published by Politico on Monday night.

If it’s true

“If this story is true, the Court should issue its opinion right away,” tweeted former federal prosecutor and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy.

“Otherwise the disgraceful leak wins. I would say that if my side lost. If we lose the integrity of the Court’s process, we lose the Court. That should be intolerable to all of us who live in the country,” he added.

The case

The Mississippi case claimed to have the five votes needed to overturn the nearly 50-year ruling, with the support of conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice John Roberts.

The leak of Alito’s opinion will likely be the subject of much investigation.

Following the leaked report, several pro-abortion activists protested outside of the Supreme Court, leading to a strong Capitol Police presence.

The tense emotions continue to run high on all sides due to the issue as well as the new twist of a leak in the Supreme Court.

The good news is that if the report is true, pro-life advocates may find themselves with a historic victory that will change the issue across the nation.
