Pro-abortion activists slammed a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion which signaled that justices would likely overturn Roe v. Wade, claiming the decision would diminish women’s rights and pledging to fight while abortion remains a constitutional right.
Politico published the Court’s leaked draft opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case Monday, revealing that a majority of justices had decided in December to overturn Roe during a non-binding vote. Pro-abortion groups vowed to fight back, emphasizing that the decision was not yet final.
House Democrats have hired Marc Elias, the elections lawyer linked to the infamous Steele dossier, to help in their bid to overturn the results of an Iowa House race won by a Republican incumbent.
According to Politico, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is paying Elias to represent the campaign of Rita Hart, a Democrat who lost by six votes to Rep. Mariannette Miller-Marks.
Hart has appealed to Congress to adjudicate the outcome of the election after state officials declared Miller-Marks the winner. Hart claims that Iowa officials failed to count 22 ballots that would have swayed the election in her favor.
