A leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court revealed that a majority of justices want to overturn Roe v. Wade. Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed the draft’s authenticity in a statement on Tuesday, but noted that the court has not yet made a final decision and that votes could change in the coming weeks.
Ocasio-Cortez, however, claimed it’s obvious that “SCOTUS isn’t just coming for abortion – they’re coming for the right to privacy Roe rests on, which includes gay marriage + civil rights.”
As we’ve warned, SCOTUS isn’t just coming for abortion – they’re coming for the right to privacy Roe rests on, which includes gay marriage + civil rights.
Manchin is blocking Congress codifying Roe. House has seemingly forgotten about Clarence Thomas. These 2 points must change https://t.co/5Isec0osV0

Some leftists, however, went even further and called on Democrats to “burn” the whole institution to the ground:
Seriously, shout out to whoever the hero was within the Supreme Court who said “fuck it! Let’s burn this place down.”

The draft specifically calling out Obergefell makes it very clear what this is about. This is a crusade.
Burn. It. Down. https://t.co/1sNPyK5aSg

Fuck the United States Supreme Court for making an attempt to strip women of their right to safe abortions.
Burn this system to the ground and build something better.

Burn down the whole fucking place.
Your body, your choice.
This isn’t a political, federal, state or local decision.
It’s exclusively an individual one. https://t.co/UVwPaLgbPO
