Powerful Chief Justice Roberts Still Has a Way to Sink Roe v. Wade Decision

More News For You

Sometime in the next two weeks, the Supreme Court is likely to rule on a potential overturning of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. While many people are assuming it will be overturned, that is not a foregone conclusion.

According to a Sunday article from Politico, pro-abortion activists are keying in on Chief Justice John Roberts as a potential hope for a compromise.

In a separate article on May 2, Politico was the first outlet to break the news that a leaked opinion draft from Justice Samuel Alito indicated the court would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

At the time, the outlet reported conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett would join Alito’s opinion, while progressive Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan would dissent.

Meanwhile, Politico said it was “unclear” how Roberts would vote.

In the new article from Sunday, Politico laid out the possibility of a compromise led by Roberts that would protect abortion in some capacity.

Politico said Roberts has historically taken the position that Supreme Court decisions should be narrow, and pro-abortion activists hope this philosophy could lead to a compromise. The outlet cited comments from Roberts at the University of Minnesota Law School in 2018 to make this point.

“I think judicial decisions should be narrower, rather than broader,” Roberts said. “Courts sometimes get in trouble when they try to sweep more broadly than necessary.”

Nevermind the fact that the Roe v. Wade decision itself is horribly written and broadened the issue of abortion to a federal one instead of leaving it to the states. Left-leaning outlets like Politico are now trying to twist Roberts’ affinity for narrow decisions into support for abortion.
