The draft opinion leaked to the press that would overturn Roe v. Wade is still the only one being circulated among Supreme Court justices, whose votes in a pivotal abortion case remain unchanged, Politico reported Wednesday.
Politico is the same news outlet that first published the draft, written by conservative associate justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., on May 2.
In its latest report, Politico said it has learned that "none of the conservative justices who initially sided with Alito have to date switched their votes."
The case in question, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, centers on Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban, a direct challenge to Roe.
