Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : In 1992, the court largely upheld Roe in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
45% : The document, which bears the words "1st Draft" at the top, states that Roe v. Wade's reasoning was "exceptionally weak," that the original decision has had "damaging consequences," and that the decision was "egregiously wrong.""Abortion presents a profound moral question.
42% : Roe [v Wade] and [Planned Parenthood v Casey] arrogated that authority.
42% : In Roe v. Wade, the court ruled that states could not ban abortion before viability, which the court determined to be 24 to 28 weeks into pregnancy.
41% : The Constitution does not prohibit the citiizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion.
41% : If the decision holds, more than a dozen states will immediately outlaw abortion.
39% : The U.S. Supreme Court will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide, according to draft opinion cited in a news report released Monday evening.
39% :The Politico report described the opinion as "a full-throated, unflinching repudiation" of Roe v. Wade, which created a constitutional right to abortion nationwide up until roughly 24-28 weeks of pregnancy.
36% : In the draft, Alito writes that the Constitution "makes no reference to abortion," and that "no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision.""[F]ar from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division," Alito continued.
36% : The case involves a Mississippi law restricting most abortions after 15 weeks and centers on the question of "Whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional," or whether states can ban abortion before a fetus can survive outside the womb.
35% : "It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives."
