Roe v Wade: Is gay marriage at risk after U.S. Supreme Court leak?

Reading now: 874

A leaked U.S. Supreme Court opinion suggesting justices are poised to overturn abortion rights has left LGBTQ+ advocacy groups fearful that same-sex marriage could also be at risk.

If finalized, the opinion would strike down the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that established the right to abortion. LGBTQ+ advocates fear that it could open the door to legal challenges targeting gay marriage and other landmark civil rights rulings at the country’s top court, which holds a six-to-three conservative majority.

Some expressed concerns that after decades of advances in civil rights protections for LGBTQ+ Americans, the court could also overturn the prohibition on anti-sodomy laws.
