If Roe v. Wade is overturned, will abortion be illegal in NJ?
However, some states have already enshrined abortion rights into law, regardless of Roe.
According to a shocking Politico report, the Supreme Court may soon overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, allowing states to criminalise abortion.
It is possible that some states have already passed laws legalising abortion regardless of Roe.
Unprecedented leak to Politico indicates five justices backed a draught opinion (written by New Jersey's Justice Samuel Alito) following oral arguments last December.
Assuming the draught is genuine, it hasn't been officially published and isn't yet law.
The Supreme Court declined to comment, and NBC News did not obtain or verify the draught.
The justices' final vote and decision may also change.
