As reported in Politicala leaked Supreme Court draft decision showed that the court intended to strike down the precedent despite at least three justices claiming during their confirmation hearings that they would recognize precedent.

The ruling is expected to come soon, though it’s unclear exactly how close the court is to a ruling. In the meantime, women are scrambling for healthcare before their rights are stripped away, and doctors are preparing to make difficult judgment calls in a post-gnaws America.

Or provide the care and then be reported and go to jail? I don’t know.”
