In an article published by National Catholic Register, TCA’s Ashley McGuire and Leigh Snead weigh in on the one year anniversary of the Dobbs leak and the ongoing courage of Justice Alito and those justices who continue to face threats and harassment in their article titled “‘Targets of Assassination’: Alito, Abortion, and the Rule of Law“. They write:

The Dobbs leak has come to symbolize the ultimate disregard for justice and the rule of law at the heart of the abortion lobby’s modus operandi, which has proven quite willing to stop at … well, nothing.

“We do not pretend to know how our political system or society will respond to today’s decision overruling Roe and Casey.”

No doubt Alito thought up a lot of possible post-Dobbs outcomes but having his draft leaked months before the opinion was due for release likely wasn’t among them. The courage it took to write those words couldn’t be clearer, one year later.

“This made us targets of assassination,” Justice Alito recently told The Wall Street Journal in a feature-length interview, which describes the justice being forced to deliver a law school speech through Zoom for security reasons in the wake of the ruling. “Still, there were so many protesters and they were so loud that you could hear them,” he said.
