Smith County Democratic Party Statement Regarding Reported Leaked Draft SCOTUS Opinion Re: Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (Affecting Rowe & Casey)

While we like to believe that the integrity, knowledge and administration of our nation’s highest Court has significantly improved over the time since Plessy v. Ferguson was decided, it is clear from this reported leak that John Roberts’ SCOTUS is just as flawed as the 1896 Court that ruled that although, “the 14th Amendment intended to establish absolute equality for the races before the law, separate treatment did not imply the inferiority of African Americans.”
The Politico-leaked document indicates that Justice Alito’s draft opinion states:

“We do not pretend to know how our political system or society will respond to today’s decision overruling Roe and Casey. And even if we could foresee what will happen, we would have no authority to let that knowledge influence our decision. We can only do our job, which is to interpret the law, apply longstanding principles of stare decisis, and decide this case accordingly. We therefore hold that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives.”

Politico

It is clear that those with exclusive access to the Court have contradicted this statement by intentionally leaking this false flag to exert an ‘exercise of raw judicial power.’ The ability to act with impunity will further embolden this Court.
Congress must act to limit the harm that this Court has and will inflict upon our nation.
