In a statement released on Tuesday morning, Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed the authenticity of a draft majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that would overturn the precedents set in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The draft was published by Politico on Monday night.
Is nothing sacred anymore? An alleged draft of a Supreme Court ruling on the famous and controversial Roe v. Wade decision appears to have been leaked and published by POLITICO.
Releasing the document in a controversial manner of its own, POLITICO titled the piece, “Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows.” As the Associated Press reports, “Court that rarely leaks does so now in biggest case in years.”
The AP writes “Lawyers and others who watch the court closely were shocked. Neal Katyal, who has argued dozens of cases before the court and as a young lawyer worked for Justice Stephen Breyer, compared the apparent leak to The New York Times’ 1971 publication of the government’s secret history of the Vietnam War, known as the Pentagon Papers.”
“This is the equivalent of the pentagon papers leak, but at the Supreme Court. I’m pretty sure there has never ever been such a leak. And certainly not in the years I’ve been following the Supreme Court,” Katyal wrote on Twitter.
The draft published by POLITICO, appears to be a first draft of the court’s opinion delivered by Justice Samuel Alito. The opinion states: “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled…“=It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
“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” the opinion continues.
The draft states the discussion of abortion is not discussed within the U.S. Constitution and therefore the “issue of abortion” should be returned “to the people’s elected representatives.” It reads: “Procuring an abortion is not a fundamental constitutional right because such a right has no basis in the Constitution’s text or in our Nation’s history.”
Returning legislative powers back to the state level has liberals losing their minds. Many have speculated as to the reason that the draft was leaked. For one, to enrage and rally the left just before the midterm elections. Another possibility is so that conservative justices could be bullied and/or publicly pressured into changing their opinion. Nonetheless, the perpetrator is disgusting.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
