Barack and Michelle Obama Weigh In On SCOTUS Abortion Decision

The Obamas posted a three-page statement to Instagram on Tuesday deriding the draft opinion, which could also provide a legal pretext for curtailing rights far beyond abortion.

“If the Supreme Court ultimately decides to overturn the landmark case of Roe v. Wade, then it will not only reverse nearly 50 years of precedent — it will relegate the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues,” the statement reads. The draft decision “simply forces folks to give up any constitutionally recognized interest in what happens to their body once they get pregnant,” without attempting to balance or consider any other interest in women’s health, safety or personal liberty,” it continued.
