This is what I want to say to SCOTUS Alito! My repackaged clip gives voice to how I felt after hearing about the leaked documents from ultra-conservative Judge Samuel Alito’s opinion prior to the recently explosive Roe v Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. That document cited some of the most extreme anti-abortion views dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
In reading highlighted excerpts of his opinion, I became enraged by the deeply regressive and repressive stance against abortion–and a woman’s right to choose–that he took on behalf of SCOTUS, and that he relied on a 2008 CDC report, which showed there was a “supply-and-demand shortage of children available for adoption in the US.”
