Tuesday thread: The fallout from the bombshell Supreme Court leak on overturning Roe
GOP politicians are enraged about the leak. Shouldn't they instead be celebrating their domination over women's bodies? A sign that this has completely altered the mid-terms?
Like many of you, I was terribly shaken by the leak last night from Politico that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade. It’s the first time in modern history that a draft of a SCOTUS decision has been leaked, and it reveals an impending assault on the rights of women — and, eventually, the rights of many others, as Roe is intertwined with marriage equality, contraception, banning sodomy laws and so much else.
Social media has been exploding with theories about who leaked the document, and many Republican politicians are outraged about that — rather than celebrating their big win. Why? The leak should be a minor issue, after all, if this is something you’ve worked toward for your entire career. You should be ecstatic about it.
