Politician: majority draft to cancel 1973 law
(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, 02 MAY – The Supreme Court intends to vote to cancel the 1973 law that guarantees the right to abortion in the United States. This was revealed by Politico, who obtained an exclusive draft written by Judge Samuel Alito on the opinion of the majority of the essays.
The document is a “total and firm” repudiation of the historic Roe vs Wade ruling. “We believe that ‘Roe and Casey’ should be canceled,” reads the draft entitled ‘Court Opinion’. “It is time to listen to the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the elected representatives of the people”, the document continues. The draft was drawn up in February, informed sources told Politico. The four Republican-nominated judges – Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – voted with Alito, also appointed by Grand Old Party president George W. Bush, in 2005, to abolish the right to abortion. Three Democratic judges Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are working on a counter-draft, the sources said.
It is not clear how Supreme Court President John Roberts, who was also appointed by Bush in 2006 and who is considered a moderate, will side. (HANDLE).
