“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Alito writes. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
“As a former law clerk, I clerked for Justice Alito. I can tell you, law clerks are expected to keep utmost confidentiality and decorum. It’s a respectul, collegial, and even friendly work environment. And I can’t imagine the damage this leak will bring the atmosphere and the operation of the court,” Lee said.
“I still don’t know who leaked this and what their motives are,” Lee said. “Maybe they wanted to leak it so as to make it difficult for justices planning on signing it.”
“I think it would be good for the court to signal that this is done,” Lee said.
“There’s nothing in this decision making abortion unlawful. That is a fallacy. A fallacy pushed by the left to scare people. What this is saying is that decisions regarding abortion will be made by lawmakers. Primarily, almost exclusively, at the state level. Not at the federal level,” he told Beck.
“This opinion, as drafted — I hope and pray this is in fact an opinion of the court, as it purports to be — because as written, it uproots Roe and Casey, root and branch. It doesn’t leave anything left of them. It simply makes the case that these are decisions for state lawmakers. Not decisions for federal judges.”
