The Supreme Court is scheduled to gather on Thursday for the first time since Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was revealed.
Justice Samuel Alito’s sweeping and blunt draft majority opinion from February overturning Roe remains the court’s only circulated draft in the pending Mississippi abortion case, and none of the conservative justices who initially sided with Alito have to date switched their votes. No dissenting draft opinions have circulated from any justice, including the three liberals.
To reiterate, no second draft of Alito’s opinion has been drafted, and no reactionary drafts from others.
At the scheduled, private, closed-door meeting on Thursday, the high court is faced with high drama including an investigation of the leak, an agitated nation, and protests at some of the justice’s homes.
The court is traditionally scheduled to break on July 1, which leaves seven weeks to craft a decision on abortion.
