The San Francisco-based National Center for Lesbian Rights, along with 90 national and regional LGBTQ organizations, has issued an open letter calling "on policymakers at all levels and in all branches of government to do everything in their power to protect access to abortion care."The letter was issued in advance of the expected U.S.
Supreme Court decision this month or in early July in the case out of Mississippi, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
A bombshell leak in early May revealed Justice Samuel Alito's draft majority opinion indicating the court was prepared to strike down Roe v.
Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion and a subsequent ruling, Planned Parenthood v. Casey.The court now has a conservative 6-3 majority, thanks to three appointments made by then-President Donald Trump during his four-year term in office.
