The US Supreme Court looks poised to overturn a landmark ruling allowing abortion for women across the United States, according to Politico magazine.

In a 98-page draft opinion, leaked to Politico Justice Samuel Alito writes that the 1973 Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion across the US is “egregiously wrong”.

The leaked document quotes Justice Alito as saying: “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.

“And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”

Four of the other Republican-appointed justices – Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – voted with Alito in the conference held among the justices after hearing oral arguments in December, and continued to support the opinion, Politico said.
