In this quote, Alito essentially equates being gay to smoking crack and says no such right is rooted in “history.” I wonder what else the Puritans or old Torquemada opposed, you know, in “history,” which Alito thinks is so great. “Make America Spain in 1502 Again!”
Replying to @mjs_DC
Alito's draft opinion explicitly criticizes Lawrence v. Texas (legalizing sodomy) and Obergefell v. Hodges (legalizing same-sex marriage). He says that, like abortion, these decisions protect phony rights that are not "deeply rooted in history." politico.com/f/?id=00000180-…

Conservative women need to understand that voting for Republicans has made their children second-class citizens with fewer rights than they’ve enjoyed themselves…

Video of my Republican opponent Matt DePerno saying he will prosecute women and their doctors for abortion with NO EXCEPTIONS for rape, incest, or medical emergencies. Women in Michigan should be terrified right now. Vote like your life depends on it. secure.actblue.com/donate/fr…

If Alito gets a majority for his opinion in current form, the dissents are going to be very powerful. Saying women shouldn’t have rights today b/c it wasn’t custom & history in this country for men to grant them to them may not turn be the compelling argument he thinks it is.

Alito’s draft heavily references English legal precedent, including that of famed jurist Sir Matthew Hale who, it should be noted, had at least two women executed for witchcraft and wrote a treatise supporting marital rape

What an actual "coordinated assault" looks like.
The Court should not abide this coordinated assault by the Left. Issue the decision now

One historian of abortion argues that abortion stays at pretty much the same rate per capita over time whether it's legal or banned. What changes when you make it illegal is how many women die from it.

Republicans know the politics of overturning Roe screws them. That's why they're screaming about the leak and process and "norms" right now, instead of celebrating the thing they've supposedly all wanted the most.

In Missouri, a state legislator has already proposed empowering the state Attorney General and other law enforcement officers to interrogate people suspected of having sex in Missouri, including residents of other states paying us a visit.

By the way Senate Republicans are already out ahead of Alito and the Court's right wing majority and are drafting a bill to make abortion illegal after 6 weeks (before most women know they're pregnant) nationwide if they take back the majority in November. wispolitics.com/2022/america…

In the draft opinion striking down Roe v. Wade, pp. 31-32, Justice Alito also seems to directly put two more precedents in peril: Lawrence, granting the "right to engage in private, consensual sexual acts," and Obergefell, granting the "right to marry a person of the same sex."

This is just Alito's draft & in the process of getting 5 votes, opinions can change. Nonetheless, that he's contemplating fully overruling Roe & returning women to 2nd class citizenship is absolutely appalling. No less devastating for knowing it was possibly coming.
The document leaked to Politico is almost certainly an authentic draft opinion by J. Alito that reflects what he believes at least 5 members of the Court have voted to support — overruling Roe. But as Alito’s draft, it does not reflect the comments or reactions of other Justices.

We’re horrified, saddened, and livid. If you are too, then now is the time to show up and show them our movement won't back down from protecting our reproductive rights. Tomorrow, at 5pm your local time, we’re rallying across America for abortion rights: act.womensmarch.com/sign/roe…
The Supreme Court has voted to strike down Roe v. Wade, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by POLITICO. “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Alito writes. politico.com/news/2022/05/02…

There's a particular slap to the face of being told we can vote for abortion rights, by the court that gutted voting rights.

Crowd of protesters is growing quickly, and pushing toward the barricade that the handful of guards put up earlier tonight. Chants of “fascist scum have got to go,” interspersed with the names of the conservative justices
