Democrats ‘angry’ at potential ruling, Republicans focus on investigating leak

The bombshell leaked draft ruling that would overturn abortion rights is authentic, the Supreme Court confirmed on Tuesday as “angry” Democrats organized against the potential ruling while Republicans focused on investigating the leak.

Politico on Monday night published that the Supreme Court voted to strike down Roe v. Wade on a 5-4 ruling, according to a leaked draft opinion from Justice Samuel Alito.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday confirmed the draft document is “authentic,” but it doesn’t represent the court’s decision in the pending abortion rights case — nor the final position of any justice. However, Democrats didn’t waste any time, sounding the alarm about the potential devastating blow to abortion rights for millions of women across the country.

Democrats on Capitol Hill are pushing for legislation to protect abortion rights on the federal level, but it doesn’t appear they currently have the votes in the Senate.

“I am angry,” U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren told reporters outside the Supreme Court. “Angry and upset and determined. The United States Congress can keep Roe v. Wade the law of the land. They just need to do it.

“The Republicans have been working toward this day for decades,” she added. “They have been out there plotting, carefully cultivating these Supreme Court justices, so they could have a majority on the bench who would accomplish something that the majority of Americans do not want.”

President Biden’s administration has argued before the Supreme Court in defense of Roe v. Wade — arguing “a woman’s right to choose is fundamental,” Biden said in a statement.

“If the Court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” he added. “And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November.”
