The way this one Republican reacted to the Supreme Court leak will leave you speechless
Someone leaked a draft opinion showing the Supreme Court is prepared to strike down Roe v. Wade.
Conservatives thought they were on the verge of a massive victory.
And the way this one Republican reacted to the Supreme Court leak will leave you speechless.
POLITICO obtained a leaked draft of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion striking down Roe v. Wade and ending the federal imposition of abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.
Justice Alito wrote that the right to an abortion was not found anywhere in the Constitution.
“The inescapable conclusion is that a right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and traditions,” Alito wrote.
Justice Alito added that since the Constitution did not prevent any state from banning abortion, the Supreme Court had no other choice but to strike down Roe and return the question of abortion to the states.
“The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion,” Justice Alito wrote. “Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
POLITICO reported that four of the Court’s other conservative Justices voted with Alito and remained firm in their support for overturning Roe v. Wade.
“A person familiar with the Court’s deliberations said that four of the other Republican-appointed Justices – Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett – had voted with Alito in the conference held among the Justices after hearing oral arguments in December, and that line-up remains unchanged as of this week,” POLITICO reported.
This did not sit well with Maine RINO and pro-abortion fanatic Senator Susan Collins.
Collins all-but accused Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch of lying to her about their support for upholding Roe v. Wade.
Asked if she was mislead by Kavanaugh, Collins told us: “My statement speaks for itself”

Of course, Kavanaugh and Gorsuch made no such promises.
If Kavanaugh and Gorsuch were the type to promise to vote to uphold Roe v. Wade, they never would have been nominated in the first place.
Pro-Life activists would have scuttled their nominations.
The conservative legal movement spent decades fighting for this moment.
And on the verge of an historic victory, Maine RINO Susan Collins is showing that her loyalty is to abortion-on-demand.
