Conservatives waited nearly 50 years for this moment.
Democrats dreaded that this day would come.
And now a shocking leak revealed Democrats are about to suffer this soul-crushing Supreme Court defeat.
POLITICO reporter Josh Gerstein obtained a leak of a draft opinion authored by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito striking down the wrongly decided Roe v. Wade case that imposed the immoral abortion-on-demand regime on the entire nation.
“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Justice Alito stated. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
Alito pointed out what many legal scholars on the Left long ago conceded, which was that the legal foundation of the Roe decision was weak and did not really pass muster.
Alito added that when the Court inserted itself into the abortion debate in 1973, it ignited a long cultural war that inflamed America’s political divide.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division,” Alito declared.
Alito – joined by justices Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh – slammed the idea of a right to abortion as fictitious with no basis in the Constitution.
“The inescapable conclusion is that a right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and traditions,” Alito exclaimed.
Alito wrote that the Constitution does not prohibit states from banning abortion, and said that the Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood decisions were examples of judicial overreach.
“The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion,” Alito ruled. “Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
Donald Trump’s three Supreme Court nominees – Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Neil Gorsuch – delivered the votes on a goal that conservatives fought for generations to achieve.
Someone on the Left – either a Justice or a clerk – leaked Alito’s opinion in a desperate attempt to whip up riots in the streets and a corporate-controlled media pressure campaign to force one of the Justices to cave in and leave Roe on the books.
That effort must fail.
