Draft Opinion Overturning Roe v. Wade Won’t Have Ripples, Legal Experts Say

"In an interview with The Epoch Times, Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, said the left is engaged in “purely hysterics” right now.

The draft’s reasoning is 'very specific to abortion, and the utter lack of any constitutional basis for the original Roe ruling.'

'This is limited to the issue at stake, but if you want to draw any larger conclusion,' you could conclude that in the future if 'a liberal Supreme Court wants to invent a new right, they should at least go through the exercise of finding some plausible constitutional basis for that.'

The year 1973 was 'the height of judicial activism and the ‘living Constitution’ and making things up, that completely loosey-goosey standard,' Levey said.

The Obergefell ruling, which legalized same-sex marriage throughout the country, has 'more of a constitutional basis than Roe ever did,' he said, adding that the claim that interracial marriage will be banned by the court is nonsense because the ruling allowing it 'has a very strong constitutional basis.'

Levey’s nonprofit describes itself as 'devoted to restoring the Founders’ vision of a federal judiciary governed by the rule of law and anchored by the Constitution.'"
