TW: Supreme Court Overturns Roe V Wade

The Supreme Court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that established the constitutional right to abortion in the U.S. in 1973.

The court’s controversial but expected ruling gives individual states the power to set their own abortion laws without concern of running afoul of Roe, which for nearly half a century had permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy.

Almost half the states are expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision. Other states plan to maintain more liberal rules governing the termination of pregnancies.

“The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” a syllabus of the opinion said.

The case that triggered Roe’s demise after nearly a half-century, known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is related to a Mississippi law that banned nearly all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Dobbs was by far the most significant and controversial dispute of the court’s term. It also posed the most serious threat to abortion rights since a 1992 case, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, in which the Supreme Court reaffirmed Roe.

Dobbs deepened partisan divisions in a period of already intense political tribalism.

The early May leak of a draft of the majority opinion, which completely overturned Roe, sent shockwaves across the country and galvanized activists on both sides of the debate. It also cast a pall over the nation’s highest court, which immediately opened an investigation to find the source of the leak.

The publication of the court’s draft opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, sparked protests from abortion-rights supporters, who were outraged and fearful about how the decision will impact both patients and providers as 22 states gear up to restrict abortions or ban them outright.

The leaked opinion marked a major victory for conservatives and anti-abortion advocates who had worked for decades to undermine Roe and Casey, which the majority of Americans support keeping in place.

But Republican lawmakers in Washington, who are hoping to win big in the November midterm elections, initially focused more on the leak itself than on what it revealed. They also decried the protests that formed outside the homes of some conservative justices, accusing activists of trying to intimidate the court.

The unprecedented leak of Alito’s draft opinion blew a hole in the cloak of secrecy normally shrouding the court’s internal affairs. It drew harsh scrutiny from the court’s critics, many of whom were already concerned about the politicization of the country’s most powerful deliberative body, where justices are appointed for life.

Chief Justice John Roberts vowed that the work of the court “will not be affected in any way” by the leak, which he described as a “betrayal” intended to “undermine the integrity of our operations.”

The leak had clearly had an impact, however. Tall fencing was set up around the court building afterward, and Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the U.S. Marshals Service to “help ensure the Justices’ safety.”

Alito, in his first reported remarks since the leak, spoke remotely from the court building to a crowd attending a forum at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, rather than make the six-mile journey to the school. The Washington Post reported that, when asked during that event how he and the other justices are holding up, Alito replied, “This is a subject I told myself I wasn’t going to talk about today regarding, you know — given all the circumstances.”

This is bullshit because it's so ****ing obvious that these ****ing republicans will take thier daughters and wives to get abortions by traveling to other states CAUSE THEY CAN AFFORD IT but we CAN'T. There needs to be riots. Action needs to be taken against these republicans in charge.

I came here right after I got the CNN notification - this is absolutely f*cking disgusting. Conservatives are literally crazy and unhinged, no knowing where this is going.

And generally speaking, there has been a heavy conservative wave in the world the last few years. So much ugliness coming out of the woodwork.

Love that my country supports a fictional character in the sky and automatic weapons before the right to my own body.

Absolutely disgusted and heartbroken. It’s terrifying how easily we lose our rights just because a few people have outdated opinions about something that’ll literally never affect them. 
I’d type a whole rant about how awful this is, but I just feel defeated. America is largely in support of abortion. This shouldn’t happen.

I just hope we don’t see similar things here in the UK, or anywhere else for that matter. 

I'm an ARTPOP bitch, baby

This is a BIG reminder to all those who didn't vote for Hillary because Bernie lost (or whatever other stupid reason) that they made a huge mistake. I SCREAMED to everyone to just get over it and vote for her. AND THIS IS WHY. The Supreme Court is infinitely more important than the president with the big issues. Infinitely. You ALWAYS  vote for the president who can make sure the Supreme Court stays liberal. Always. As only the president can appoint a SCOTUS Justice. Trump got to vote in THREE psychopaths. Three. Who will be on the Court of decades.  Those would have been Hillary's appointees. Maddening.

To the poster who asked if Biden can do anything? Nope. Nothing. Nada. No one can. This is now the law of the land and it will cause utter chaos in the country. 

(Sorry to rant. I'm just pissed off.)
