Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft resolution from last week that revealed the high court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade caused an uproar in the media and with pro-abortion radical leftists.
While news reports warned viewers that the leaked decision wasn’t final, according to Fox News, a report revealed this week that the decision is, in fact, the final decision on the highly controversial matter, meaning sometime this summer, SCOTUS will announce that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.
“Three conservative sources close to the court say that the votes supporting the decision remain unchanged, according to reporting from the Washington Post,” Fox News noted, while explaining that the draft has likely been rewritten over the past several months, but ultimately ends with the overturning.
Reportedly, Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett have sided with Justice Alito’s decision on the matter, with Chief Justice John Roberts still holding out, Fox noted, “to persuade Coney Barrett and Kavanaugh to take a more incremental approach to allowing abortion restrictions.”
Unsurprisingly, the overturning will be vehemently opposed by the high court’s three liberal justices.
Roberts, however, has asserted that the leak, which many believe was an attempt to scare conservative justices into another opinion, will not affect the Supreme Court’s duties.
“To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed,” Roberts said in a statement last week after the news hit. “The work of the Court will not be affected in any way.”
Justice Thomas made crystal clear during a recent judicial conference that nobody on the high court will be “bullied” into issuing decisions desired by angry mobs of activists, the New York Post reported.
All that can be done at this point is for pro-life Americans to continue to pray that the high court sticks to their guns and sends the abortion debate back to the states, where it should have been decided for the past 50 years.
