In new comments, Justice Samuel Alito slammed the leak of the Dobbs decision this Spring as very problematic for member of the Supreme Court and their safety.
Altio, who wrote the eventual Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade, said the leak put members of the nation’s highest court in a position of being “targets for assassinations” because the leak led to intense protests outside their homes that threatened their lives and the lives of their families and children. Ultimately, one leftist did attempt to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh and currently faces criminal charges as a result.
“The leak also made those of us who were thought to be in the majority in support of overruling Roe and Casey targets for assassination because it gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us. And we know that,” Justice Alito said at an event sponsored by the Heritage Foundation.
