Politico recently published a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson. It suggests the Court could be on the verge of striking down Roe v. Wade, the decision that made abortion legal in all 50 states.
The Supreme Court is an institution that must operate with a deep sense of trust, separate from the vengeful politics of the day. This leak is a significant breach of that trust—it is a betrayal of the Court’s integrity and could destabilize our revered system of justice.
But that’s not the only damaging consequence. Despite an overwhelming majority of Americans rejecting the idea, in response to this leaked opinion, Americans are already seeing renewed calls to pack the Court.
