We’ve heard little from the Supreme Court ever since someone leaked a draft opinion to the press. Democrats, violating federal law, protested outside justices’ homes in an attempt to change their final ruling.
Americans are waiting to hear what the court decides on Roe. And Justice Alito has given an update.
From Fox News:
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito briefly addressed the status of the court amid pro-choice protests after Politico published Alito’s leaked draft opinion reversing Roe v. Wade (1973)…
“The court right now, we had our conference this morning, we’re doing our work,” the justice added. “We’re taking new cases, we’re headed toward the end of the term, which is always a frenetic time as we get our opinions out.”
Liberal protests and threats have been constant over the last few weeks. The left has openly called on activists to “pressure” the court to uphold Roe—a clear violation of law.
But Justice Alito has revealed that, despite attempts to disrupt them, the court continues its work.
He revealed that, as the court reaches the end of the term, it becomes a frenetic time. They are taking new cases and deciding on open ones.
The justices had met this week for a private conference—the first time since the leak.
A number of cases from the fall, winter, and spring need to be decided. If they took on new cases at well, they have even more work to do.
Reports indicate that the court will have all its rulings by the beginning of the summer. That is a pretty hectic pace.
What will be the status of Roe v. Wade? Nobody knows for sure. The draft leak suggested it would be overturned. But the court could have changed its mind since February—when the opinion was written.
And it’s possible the left’s intimidation campaign will scare some of the justices into upholding Roe.
