Leak of draft opinion on abortion, Roe v. Wade sparks protests outside Supreme Court

Live outside the U.S. Supreme Court following reports that SCOTUS has voted to overturn abortion rights in draft opinions.

RELATED: Roe v. Wade protests outside Supreme Court after reported leak of draft opinion

Lawmakers and congressional candidates wasted little time Monday reacting to the news of a draft Supreme Court opinion published by Politico suggesting the court is considering a decision that would overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a constitutional right to abortion.

The issue of abortion was already a hot-button issue in key races across the country in advance of November's mid-term elections.

But the report that the high court was potentially closer to reversing the nearly 50-year-old ruling – and letting states decide what abortion restrictions to enact – sparked outrage from progressives and cheers from conservatives running in state and federal elections nationwide.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., issued a joint statement saying "the Supreme Court is poised to inflict the greatest restriction of rights in the past fifty years – not just on women but on all Americans," if the report is accurate.

  1. Hopefully everybody learns from this—do not use the Supreme Court to change law to get what you want. Had pro-choice advocates chosen to fight for this through the normal democratic means (as opposed to legislating undemocratically/unconstitutionally from the Judicial) then the Supreme Court could not just undo it. Fight to change the law democratically, and then constitutionally if you want it resting on a secure foundation.
