Justice Samuel Alito declines to say if the justices could still have a friendly dinner with each other after his bombshell draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked
New interview with SCOTUS judge Samuel Alito reveals tensions seem to be bubbling between members of the Supreme Court.
All is not well at the Supreme Court. Last week Justice Samuel Alito spoke for the first time following the leak of his draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which will overturn reproductive freedom in this country. The justice appeared at an event at ASSLaw — otherwise known as George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, for the uninitiated — and he couldn’t handle even a pretty basic inquiry.
Since the premature release of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft of his opinion on the aspects of the Mississippi law outlawing abortion’s after 15-weeks (Dobbs vs Jackson Women’s Health Organization), we have been granted a unique preliminary view that Justice Alito believes both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey “must be overruled”.
When Roe goes, no need to worry about other important issues grounded in the same precedent. Or so says Samuel Alito’s draft opinion.

SNL's abortion rights cold open used a barrage of punch lines to effectively point out the absurdity of Justice Samuel Alito's abortion ruling
"SNL’s cold opens tend to be ambitious sketches aimed at the week’s major headlines," says Amanda Wicks. "More often than not, the show strives to satirize several different marks rather than home in on a single point. But (Saturday) night’s open delivered a focused barrage of punch lines about how men in the Middle Ages understood the world and viewed women, and questioned why that period’s principles should serve as the legal precedent for our contemporary age." Wicks adds: "In the conversation about reproductive rights, conservatives have been dominating, telling 'better' stories, the writer Rebecca Traister recently argued. But last night, SNL dismantled the regressive tale Alito established with his opinion and crafted a sharp-edged rebuttal of its own." ALSO: Benedict Cumberbatch killed it in his second time hosting SNL.
