Amplify Values In These Emerging Issues

Stay Vigilant, Stay Strategic in Response to SCOTUS Leak

The draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization leaked from the Supreme Court this week is NOT the final decision, but the preview it offers of how the court might rule confirms our greatest fears — a “full-throated” repeal of Roe v. Wade. Should this decision become final, its impact could extend far beyond the right to access abortions. We must respond to this moment with a vision of what full rights look like for all of us, our children, and generations to come. 

Moments of great fear and anxiety call on us as advocates, influencers, artists, and cultural strategists to be voices of clarity and inspiration and to move audiences into action. We channel anger toward a shared sense of the power we feel when our voices rise up in unity, and we tell stories to bring our values to life. 

In the buildup to the Court’s final decision, emphasize the potentially far-reaching consequences of this threat to the right to privacy under the law. This draft opinion paves the way to not only criminalize our right to decide what’s possible for one’s own body but also who we choose to marry and love, and how we choose to raise our children.
