State officials react to report of Supreme Court leak on Roe v. Wade
Officials in Mississippi say if the Supreme Court does overturn Roe v. Wade, it puts the decision back in the states’ rights.
In Biloxi, the Catholic Diocese told News 25 it was aware of the report of the leak, but would have no comment until the Supreme Court officially released its decision.
Governor Tate Reeves posted to social media, saying the outrage felt over the leak of the draft of an opinion from the Supreme Court regarding Roe v. Wade Mississippi is justified. “Everyone is rightly outraged over the alleged leak in the Mississippi abortion case. Let’s think bigger. For decades, America has been uniquely radical in the west. Our abortion laws look more like China and North Korea. Please pray for wisdom and courage for Supreme Court justices. Countless lives can be saved.”
Congressman Steven Palazzo said in a released statement he was concerned by the leak. “Overturning Roe v. Wade would mean returning to the decision to the voters and to the individual states. Mississippi has done a wonderful job at protecting life and I trust Mississippians to continue the fight for life should the Supreme Court see fit to return that right to them.”
