In a clear attempt to influence and intimidate justices of the Supreme Court, Politico has published a leaked 98-page draft opinion in the pending case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Association. The draft opinion, written by Justice Alito overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, is intended to circulate among justices and lead to further discussion. It is not a final opinion.

By igniting a firestorm, enflaming abortion enthusiasts, the leaker(s) and the journalists hope to influence the final decision and votes. A mob has already gathered in front of the Supreme Court, the first and so-far peaceful reaction to the leak. I would not be certain that violence can be ruled out, since, after all, abortion is itself lethal violence.
