Washington political leaders react to Roe v. Wade draft opinion
SPOKANE, Wash. — Politico obtained a Supreme Court draft opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade’s constitutional right to abortion.
The draft opinion, which apparently received majority support, is not expected to be published until late June. However, after Politico authenticated the draft, political leaders across the nation took to social media to address the recent news, especially in Washington.
Governor Jay Inslee subtweeted Politico’s article, reiterating that Washington is a pro-choice state and will continue to fight for the right to abortion.
U.S. Senator Patty Murray also issued a statement on Twitter, saying it’s always been the GOP’s goal to ban abortion. Murray, like Inslee, says she will continue to fight to protect the right to abortion.
U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell created Twitter thread as well, vowing to codify the right to abortion for the rest of the country as Washington has.
Many other politicians across the nation have commented on the news, making it one of the most controversial Supreme Court drafts in recent history.
