Contributing sentiments towards policy:

48% : Obergefell, who was the lead plaintiff in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that led to the Court's 2015 ruling that made marriage equality legal in every state of the union, took to Twitter to express his alarm that "Our most basic human rights are under siege" by the Court, which currently has a conservative majority, queer perspective pop culture/news site "them" detailed.
47% : "I'm also concerned that members of this extreme court are eager to turn their attention to overturning marriage equality," Obergefell posted.
46% : Marriage equality advocate and candidate for the Ohio state legislature Jim Obergefell has spoken out about the leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that calls women's reproductive freedoms and LGBTQ+ rights into question, Cleveland.com reported.
44% : As previosuly reported, Alito's opinion, in its current draft form, overturns the Court's own 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade, the case that made abortion legal in America.
44% : Alito slammed those rulings for their "attempts to justify abortion through appeals to a broader right to autonomy and to define one's 'concept of existence'" before adding: "None of these rights has any claim to being deeply rooted in history."
42% : Envisioning a subsequent case in which the Court could use the same arguments to revoke marriage equality from gay and lesbian American families, Obergefell said, "The sad part is in both these cases, five or six people will determine the law of the land and go against the vast majority of Ohioans and Americans who overwhelmingly support a woman's right to make her own health decisions and a couple's right to be married."
41% :"The plaintiffs successfully argued that depriving same-sex couples of the right to marriage violated the Equal Protection Clause and the Due Process Clause under the 14th Amendment; the rest is quite literally history," them added.
