"There has never been a leak of a vote, much less an actual opinion, much less in a case of this significance," @JeffreyToobin says. He calls it a "shattering experience for the justices" and says "I really don't know how the institution is going to recover." pic.twitter.com/ndkFO9vq0u— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) May 3, 2022

Not surprising. But still outrageous.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 3, 2022
This decision is a direct assault on the dignity, rights, & lives of women, not to mention decades of settled law. It will kill and subjugate women even as a vast majority of Americans think abortion should be legal. What an utter disgrace. https://t.co/TNo1IX3Tl4
As we’ve warned, SCOTUS isn’t just coming for abortion – they’re coming for the right to privacy Roe rests on, which includes gay marriage + civil rights.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 3, 2022
Manchin is blocking Congress codifying Roe. House has seemingly forgotten about Clarence Thomas. These 2 points must change https://t.co/5Isec0osV0
I thought it was a slow news day.
Today was a momentous day for White Christian Nationalism.
Note: This decision has transformed Donald Trump’s legacy.
