Legal right to abortion ‘to be overturned in US’, leaked document shows
The Metro says the US Supreme Court could be about to overturn the nationwide legal right to abortion, according to a leaked document.
Millions have been left stunned after a document labelled ‘Opinion of the Court’ allegedly showed a majority of the court’s justices backed striking down Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalised the procedure.
The document, reportedly created earlier this year, essentially states there is no constitutional right to abortion services and would allow individual states to more heavily regulate or outright ban the termination of pregnancies.
It is unclear if the draft opinion would mark the court’s final word on the issue and a Supreme Court spokeswoman refused to comment.
