The U.S. Supreme Court appears poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that guaranteed the right to abortion on the basis of privacy.

POLITICO published a leaked draft opinion on Monday night from Justice Samuel Alito, who argued that the decision had been “egregiously wrong from the start.”
