Justice Samuel Alito Overturns Roe v. Wade?

"Justice Samuel Alito" by Italy in US

A vote has been cast in the Supreme Court to strike down the landmark decision from the Roe v. Wade case which legalized abortion across the United States.

While this is still based on a draft opinion by Republican-appointed Justice Samuel Alito, it could potentially sway the other justices toward his opinion on the matter.

If the draft makes it into law, it will remove the federal right to abortion in the US.

This will leave any further decisions to the elected officials of each state to decide what their next move regarding the murder of unborn children will be.

Thousands of protesters and counter-protesters gathered at the Supreme Court building

This news reverberated throughout Washington D.C. in a matter of minutes.

It seems security was well aware of the backlash that could follow, explaining the barricades which were already set up in front of the building from the night before.

Protesters gathered in large numbers to fight the supposed decision.

Some of them were chanting while holding up signs; others simply sat down to protest in silence, joined by a small number of counter-protesters who came to fight for the rights of unborn children.

Justice Alito is of the opinion that Roe’s case against Wade was wrong from the start and that Roe and Casey’s decisions must be overruled in order to put the issue of abortion in the hands of the people’s elected representatives.

This is the first recorded case of a justice’s draft being leaked to the public, but Politico’s investigators vouched for the validity of the leak.

26 states expected to illegalize abortion

The final ruling is expected to be issued by the Supreme Court by late June or early July.

If Justice Alito’s draft makes it that far, it’s expected that 26 states in the US will illegalize any acts of violence against unborn children.

In fact, if this change gains enough traction, Republicans could push for a nationwide ban of the practice; although it’s likely to be met with a stern response from the left-leaning crowd, as well as any Democrat lawmakers.

In anticipation of an overturn of Roe v. Wade, eight conservative states have already imposed restrictions on abortion rights, with Oklahoma going as far as making the act of performing an abortion a felony by US law.

Kristi Noem, the Republican governor of South Dakota spoke up on the topic, assuring she will answer the call to save the lives of unborn American children.

The news left abortion clinics in a state of shock, with some being forced to cancel as many as 25 sessions in a single day this week, due to the soon-to-be-enacted Oklahoma law.

On the other hand, the numerous anti-abortion groups across the country welcomed the decision.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, stated that they’ll look to build the strongest protections for unborn children across all legislatures if the Roe v. Wade case is overturned.
