Many on the left were outraged last month after Politico published a leaked draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito which revealed that the Supreme Court is ready to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Protests quickly broke out, with demonstrators even targeting the homes of conservative justices. It’s led one commentator to argue that the full opinion should be released before things get worse.
“Passions are running white-hot”
“The draft opinion is excellent,” Breitbart contributor Ken Klukowski wrote in an article published on Thursday. “It is an imposing 67 pages of meticulous analysis exploring every relevant legal aspect, written in Alito’s clear and forceful style.”
“It is very likely that the other justices in the majority had already weighed in with their edits before the opinion was leaked, and those edits have either been incorporated or otherwise dealt with in the draft,” Klukowski continued.
He went on to speculate that “the majority opinion is probably in almost-final form now, if not completely finished. It probably would only take a few additional days after the leak to have it in picture-perfect form.”
According to Klukowski, all of this means there is no reason not to release the opinion now, a move that recent events have made necessary.
He pointed to the way that “passions are running white-hot” and extremists may take extreme measures to keep the opinion from being put out.
House Democrats hold up Supreme Court security bill
What’s more, Klukowski suggested the opinion’s release will reduce tensions by correcting the mistaken belief that overturning Roe means that abortion will be outlawed across America.
“Instead, voters will find that the abortion laws where they live largely reflect their values,” he noted. “Some deep-red states will become truly pro-life, where unborn Americans will be protected equally with other Americans.”
However, Klukowski stressed that “many states will allow abortions under limited circumstances, and a dozen or more deep-blue states will have no restrictions at all on abortions.”
“The nation can move forward once Dobbs – not Roe – is the law of the land, and these protests can end,” he insisted.
Fox News reported on Friday that House Democrats are holding up a bill that would provide additional security for the Supreme Court. They complained that the legislation does not protect law clerks.
