Roe v Wade: US women divided on leaked abortion ruling

My first reaction to the leaked document was shock that the Supreme Court appears to be overturning Roe v Wade. As a pro-life conservative, I am used to watching the American political spectrum continuously shift farther away from my values, so I was cautiously optimistic about this apparent progress.However, I did immediately consider the likelihood of Congress reversing this decision by pushing legislation, or states reacting by passing extreme laws in support of things like late-term abortions.If Roe v Wade is officially overturned I will have two reactions. First, I would be pleased and grateful at the Supreme Court making a decision that upholds the law and protects the sanctity of life.Second, I would be relieved that the leak of this document did not successfully pressure the court to change its decision.That is a direct attack on the Supreme Court’s credibility and impartiality. I am worried to see the Court’s process infiltrated by rogue political agendas.
