WATCH: Maddow Thinks SCOTUS’ Next Step Could be Preventing Americans From Accessing Birth Control

On Monday night, there was a bombshell leak from the Supreme Court. According to the leak, the Conservative justices on the Supreme Court plan on overturning Roe vs. Wade.

If the case was to be overturned, each state would be able to implement its own rules on abortion, with many Red states likely to ban the procedure entirely. During a segment on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow explained how this likely jst the first step in the Conservative war on women’s rights.

Speaking with fellow host Lawrence O’Donnell, Maddow explained:

“Well just say, in terms of the real-world impact on women’s lives, Congressman Jaime Raskin writes a really good point about the reasoning of this opinion which again is a draft opinion, but the way that this is written, it undoes a women’s right to decide whether she’s going to carry a pregnancy to term. But this also, absolutely, creates the circumstance where it is possible for them to undermine, to overturn, a related ruling called Griswold. Which is about the right of people to have access to contraception, even if certain state legislatures decide that contraception is evil, or if we want to call contraception abortion or otherwise make it unavailable to people. It’s a straight line from this ruling, not only to banning abortion instantly and potentially nationally, but to also preventing Americans from accessing birth control.”
