Anonymous warns United States Supreme Court against overturning a landmark abortion decision

The hacking collective Anonymous has sent a chilling message to the United States Supreme Court after leaked documents revealed that five Justices may be planning to overturn America’s landmark abortion ruling.

Anonymous stated that if the Supreme Court and Republicans repeal Roe v. Wade, they should “expect” retaliation.

The warning from Anonymous comes after an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito about Roe v. Wade was leaked Monday. The draft opinion showed that the court voted to strike down the 1973 decision.

The Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in 1973.

The landmark Roe v Wade decision in 1973 granted women in the United States the right to safe medical abortions.

Repealing the ruling, on the other hand, would return legislative rights over women’s uteruses to the US states rather than making it a federal mandate.

The repeal of Roe v Wade could result in state-by-state restrictions on abortions, or it could result in the practise being outlawed entirely, regardless of circumstance.
