The Left Launches 3-Pronged Attack To Pressure the Supreme Court After Leaked Draft Opinion Shows SCOTUS Poised to Overturn Roe v. Wade

A stolen draft of a Supreme Court opinion in a monumental case that we’ve told you could overturn Roe v. Wade was just leaked to the media in advance of the high Court’s official release of the final opinion. If this ill-gotten draft ultimately reflects the Court’s final decision, then Roe will be overturned. That would be huge.

However, unsurprisingly, as a result of the leaked information, the mainstream media and the Left are in a full meltdown, declaring that the Supreme Court is attacking women’s rights.

First and foremost, it’s only a draft. And while the Supreme Court confirmed its authenticity as a draft, the Court was also clear that it does not reflect the final opinion, so celebrating would be as premature as the hysteria we’re seeing on the Left. As Chief Justice Roberts confirmed:

Yesterday, a news organization published a copy of a draft opinion in a pending case. Justices circulate draft opinions internally as a routine and essential part of the Court’s confidential deliberative work. Although the document described in yesterday’s report is authentic, it does not represent a decision by the Court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case.

But the fact remains, we have a real fight on our hands. Let’s not be distracted from the fact that someone, likely inside the Supreme Court, STOLE this critical legal draft and leaked it in the hope that the public firestorm it ignited would intimidate at least one Justice to change their mind before the official opinion is released. They’re trying to weaponize the Supreme Court’s draft to undermine our institutions.

We’re always saying the radical Left worships at the altar of abortion, and clearly they are desperate to preserve their twisted religion, taking full advantage of this illicit act to launch a 3-pronged attack. First, it’s directly trying to pressure the Justices to change their minds (an all-out attack on the integrity of the Supreme Court). Meanwhile President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are trying to nuke the Senate filibuster. And finally, they are using this to force a vote in Congress to codify Roe (make it PERMANENT), even if the Supreme Court overturns Roe.

Using the leak of a potential victory for life to get rid of the filibuster, pack the Court, and influence Justices to change their votes is simply horrific and disgusting.

Now it could be any day in the next few weeks that we have the final Supreme Court opinion, which means we may be in for a very intense battle to keep the Left from exerting undue pressure and influence over the Court. And we don’t have much time. If any Justice were to cave to this sinister attack, it would set a terrible precedent for future cases. An entire branch of our government would be compromised. Of course, we already know the Biden Administration is not against manipulating the Court to the leftist agenda. We told you how Biden issued an Executive order to form a committee to look into adding seats to the Supreme Court, which if they did, he could quickly pack with more Left-leaning Justices.

The Left is systematically trying to dismantle our government, piece by piece. Now they have their eyes on the highest Court in the land. This leaked draft has stoked their fires, which is no doubt exactly what the leaker, and whoever else was behind them, wanted to happen. According to the reports, this could be shaping up to be a 5-4 majority. With such a narrow margin, the Left would only have to convince one Justice to change their opinion, whether sincere or otherwise, to completely upend this opinion and protect this flawed ruling of 1973 which has resulted in the loss of countless unborn babies and oftentimes forced American taxpayers to pick up the check.

While we remain hopeful that this opinion will not change, we’re also not going to wait to find out. The ACLJ is already preparing to take action, to protect this opinion overturning Roe.

We’ve filed three amicus briefs at the Supreme Court to overturn Roe. Our legislative affairs team is aggressively working on Capitol Hill to stop Sen. Schumer’s plan to nuke the filibuster and pack the Court. Our legal team is analyzing this draft opinion and working to defeat Pelosi’s attempt to make Roe permanent, and we’re willing to go back to the Supreme Court if necessary.

This is the biggest fight of our lifetimes, and time is of the essence. The good news is that based on this draft opinion, we’re winning. But the Left knows it, and it is desperate. Now both the final Supreme Court opinion and the vote to codify Roe could happen any day. We cannot stop fighting.

We’ve created an URGENT new petition and we need you to take urgent action with us now.
