Leaked SCOTUS Draft Opinion Threatens to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Demonstrators protest outside of the U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday, May 3, 2022 in Washington. A draft opinion suggests the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a Politico report released Monday. Whatever the outcome, the Politico report represents an extremely rare breach of the court's secretive deliberation process, and on a case of surpassing importance. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana)

Wade that legalized abortion nationwide. News @ Northeastern recently posted an article discussing this leak with WGSS faculty member, Libby Adler, Professor of Law and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and WGSS affiliated faculty Martha Davis, University Distinguished Professor of Law at Northeastern.
