In a first-ever in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court, a draft opinion has been leaked. The draft opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, Jr., suggests the court’s majority favors overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade court decision that granted the federal protection of abortion rights.

As the investigation into the person responsible for the leak continues, One Detroit Senior Producer connects with University of Michigan Law Professor and former U.S. attorney for Michigan Barbara McQuade to talk about the security breach, how soon the U.S. Supreme court might make a decision on abortion rights, the ramifications we may see with Michigan’s abortion laws if the decision is overturned and how other laws related to contraceptives, interracial or same-sex marriages and more could be impacted by Roe v. Wade court decision being overturned.
