Rep. Bucshon’s Statement on Unprecedented SCOTUS Leak
Washington, May 3, 2022
WASHINGTON – Representative Larry Bucshon, M.D. (R-Ind.) issued the following statement after a draft Supreme Court opinion for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked. This case has the potential to overturn previous precedent set in Roe v. Wade, which would return the responsibility of abortion laws back to the people’s elected representatives in state legislatures.
“The leak of a draft opinion in a Supreme Court case is a highly abnormal occurrence, and one that is severely damaging to the entire judicial system. This leak was an attempt to undermine the inviolability of our nation’s highest court and should be investigated to the fullest extent,” said Rep. Bucshon. “While I am hopeful that their final decision protects our most basic right, the right to life, I urge all of our Justices to remain unwavering in their duty of upholding the Constitution and not to succumb to political pressure that is coming as a result of this leak.”
Representative Bucshon has an A+ voting record with the National Right to Life Organization and Susan B. Anthony List for his voting record supporting the sanctity of life. He also supported an amicus brief to the court on this case last summer.
