Pro-Abortion Advocates Turn Ire Toward Pelosi, Other Democrats as ‘Complicit’ in Possible Roe Decision

Pro-abortion advocates have started blaming Democratic leaders, particularly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who they say have not done enough to protect abortion access as the Supreme Court appears likely to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that classified abortion as an unenumerated constitutional right.
According to a draft opinion leaked to Politico on May 2—written by Justice Samuel Alito and confirmed as genuine by the court—a majority of the justices have agreed preliminarily to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The court has not yet issued a final opinion.
Under the 1973 standard, states are prohibited from imposing restrictions on abortion in the first trimester, during which SCOTUS ruled that the mother’s right to privacy outweighed state interest in protecting life. The move effectively overturned existing abortion laws in over two dozen states, and since then, pro-life advocates have fought to return the power to regulate abortion to the states.
