The Abortion Debate and the Midterms
The big story in Washington, DC this week remains that leaked first draft of an opinion written by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito in which it appears a majority of justices will vote to overturn Roe v Wade later this summer, a bombshell revelation that is sending shockwaves throughout the country. In Washington, pro abortion rights activists protested in front of the homes of conservative justices whose addresses were made public, and someone threw a molotov cocktail into the office of Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life activist group, an act the White House is condemning. On Wednesday, the Senate will take up legislation that would codify Roe v Wade, and both parties are reexamining the midterm elections with the abortion issue suddenly front and center.
