AOC Echoes Warnings: Obergefell May Be Next To Fall

The Hill reports:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday warned progressives that the Supreme Court “isn’t just coming for abortion” after a leak of a Supreme Court draft ruling that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Ocasio-Cortez later retweeted a statement from Slate reporter Mark Joseph Stern pointing to passages in the draft opinion.

“[Supreme Court Justice Samuel] Alito’s draft opinion explicitly criticizes Lawrence v. Texas (legalizing sodomy) and Obergefell v. Hodges (legalizing same-sex marriage),” Joseph wrote. “He says that, like abortion, these decisions protect phony rights that are not ‘deeply rooted in history.’ ”

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin appeared on Don Lemon Tonight Monday, where he reacted to the unprecedented leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion signaling the court’s plan to overturn Roe vs. Wade, written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito. The move would do away with abortion rights at the federal level, leaving it up to the states.

“Jeffrey, you talked about Roe in the beginning and you mentioned Griswold vs. Connecticut,” Lemon said. “What other cases have been decided based on these precedents that could now be in jeopardy?” “Same sex marriage is, certainly,”
