The leaked draft opinion that the Supreme Court is expected to strike down Roe vs. Wade and Planned Parenthood vs. Casey has many on the left and center worried about what this could mean for gay marriage, civil rights, contraceptive rights, interracial marriage, and other issues. Some on the right are saying that it won’t change anything because Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his draft opinion that this decision has to do with abortion alone. However, there’s nothing stopping a red state from passing a law that bans gay marriage, for example, with the intention of having it challenged and sent up to SCOTUS. With their 6-3 conservative majority, it’s quite possible that the justices could take another look at Obergefell vs. Hodges and argue the ruling from 2015 was incorrect and has to be overturned. For as long as the balance of the court is tilted so heavily in the conservative direction, no right or established position is safe.
