Hoyer likens potential Roe reversal to Dred Scott slavery case


As the Senate prepared Wednesday for Democrats’ effort to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) likened a potential reversal of Roe to the infamous Dred Scott case.

An unprecedented leak of a draft opinion authored by Justice Samuel Alito from the Supreme Court last week suggested that the court may soon strike down its 1973 decision in Roe that legalized abortion nationwide. The draft is from the case ​​Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which concerns a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks. Mississippi’s defense of its law directly challenged Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
