Abstract

By now, Americans have learned of the disclosure of a draft US Supreme Court opinion by Justice Samuel Alito that erases Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood from the court’s jurisprudence—and with them, a pregnant person’s constitutional right to reproductive autonomy. There are reports that Chief Justice John Roberts initially voted against overruling precedent, but wanted to find a way to uphold the Mississippi law at the heart of the case, which bans abortion after 15 weeks, and now plans to dissent.
