More SCOTUS Leaks on Abortion Case Reveal Which ‘Conservative’ Justice Might Vote With Liberals – Opinion

As we reported earlier, Politico published a blockbuster piece Monday containing what’s said to be “an initial draft majority opinion” on the Mississippi pro-life case currently before the Supreme Court where Justice Samuel Alito wrote that “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.”

Draft opinions may be modified. A ruling is not yet in place, the misleading report from Politico has caused much predictable pouncing and seizing and pearl-clutching amongst The Usual Suspects, who are putting out calls to “burn it all down.” Some are even marching in front of a now-barricaded Supreme Court building as we speak similar to the hysteria we saw after the September 2020 death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Also, we noted that the leak, particularly from within the halls the SCOTUS on a case this large, was almost unheard of. This is a clear attempt, if ever there was, to intimidate and threaten the court in order to keep Roe v. Wade the same way as Senator. The Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made an attempt to achieve this in March 2020. This leak is also putting the lives of Justices at risk. Unnamed sources have told reporters that Chief Justice John Roberts may call upon the FBI for an investigation to discover the source.

But along with word that Roberts is calling for a “full-blown” investigation into what happened has come yet another leak – this one about Roberts himself. According to CNN sources, Roberts reportedly doesn’t want to overturn Roe v. Wade entirely. Roberts is willing to keep the Mississippi law as it stands.

But as conservative legal minds have long argued, Roe v. Wade was a deeply flawed ruling, and as Ben Shapiro – who is a lawyer among his many other talents – pointed out, Alito’s opinion was solid and not one you’d find an ActualConservatism is a good idea:

If this ultimately turns out to be true about Roberts, though it wouldn’t be a surprise considering his past rulings on hot button cases our nation’s highest court has decided like Obamacare, it will still be a major disappointment nevertheless that on this most important of cases he couldn’t side with the majority. The ability to relitigate Roe v. Wade and set a wrong right in the process is what conservative jurists have fought to be able to do since this case was initially decided, and for Roberts to side with the court’s radical leftists would be the ultimate betrayal in the eyes of many conservatives.

However, the above is not a final ruling. Draft opinions may change. As always, we’ll keep you posted on further developments, so stay tuned.
