In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce break down the latest developments from the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Why did Justice Alito focus on policy arguments to rationalize his decision? And how might classifying a “fetus” as a person further restrict reproductive rights?
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce further discuss issues stemming from the leaked opinion:
- The extent to which overturning Roe would restrict abortion access and jeopardize the right to contraception;
- The implications for other constitutional rights, including the right to interracial and same-sex marriage, and the right to consensual sexual intimacy; and
- The Supreme Court Marshal’s ongoing investigation into the source of the leak.
