Colorado advocates talk next steps in fight for abortion healthcare after Supreme Court leak

Abortion rights advocates and supporters have collectively braced themselves as the Supreme Court prepares to unveil its final ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case brought Roe v. Wade, and its 50 years of constitutional protection for reproductive healthcare, back to the highest court in the nation.

On May 3, a leaked draft majority opinion obtained and published by Politico revealed that the Court has voted to overturn constitutional protections for abortion rights should it be finalized. The court will release its final ruling around late June or early July before its summer recess.

“The sense of urgency that you all feel is exactly what politicians, the courts and anti-abortion proponents need to see in order to take us and our movement seriously,” said Aurea Bolaños Perea, communications and policy manager for Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights, or COLOR.
