A Leaky Situation - Sputnik International, 1920, 04.05.2022
Pro-abortion protesters flocked to Washington, DC, late Monday night after Politico published a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito detailing the SCOTUS had voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, a 1973 decision that protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to elect to have an abortion without excessive government restriction.
On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other prominent GOP lawmakers called on the federal government and SCOTUS to probe the so-called “lawless” leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s majority opinion draft.
John Roberts, chief justice of the Supreme Court, issued a memo on Tuesday confirming the authenticity of the leaked document. He also announced that his office has directed the marshal of the court to launch a probe “into the source of the leak.”
Roberts noted that the draft does not reflect the final decision of the court.

Reacting to reports that the Supreme Court could overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case, McConnell said the leak should be investigated and punished to the fullest extent possible.  - Sputnik International, 1920, 03.05.2022

US President Joe Biden has said that the decision, if it holds, is “radical.”
“If the court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” the US president told reporters before boarding Air Force One on Tuesday.
