Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a masterpiece of jurisprudence and a long-overdue victory for the preborn. Should this opinion become the official holding of the Court, it will also be the vindication of decades of tireless effort from pro-life advocates and the conservative legal movement.
We should take a moment to appreciate the historic nature of this decision. While the leaked draft decision in Dobbs would not ban abortion in America—despite what its detractors would have you think—it would be a monumental step forward. If the Court adopts a decision of this nature, for the first time in nearly 50 years, legislatures in every state, democratically elected by voters, will be able to regulate abortion as they see fit.
Undoubtedly, many states will make decisions I find grievously wrong, but others will be free to enact laws that protect all human life. States will be free to acknowledge in law the truth that abortion is not health care, and that a preborn child is a distinct, unrepeatable human life.
