Recount's John Heilemann: "What we have now on the Supreme Court is not a conservative majority but a radical majority."

John Heilemann, the co-founder and executive editor of The Recount, said that the Supreme Court no longer cares about the settled laws and expectations that women across the country followed for the last 50 years while talking to MSNBC this morning.

According to a report first published by Politico, the Supreme Court is planning to overturn the Roe v Wade decision as most draft opinions regarding it float around the court.

While talking about the striking down of the law, Heilemann goes on to say, “And the horror of all this, I think, is that it's demonstrated that we have now on the Supreme Court is not a conservative majority, but a radical majority.”

If this law is overturned, then it would look like the court and the majority are not bothered about the precedent and that would be upsetting for any conservative, he said.

Roe v Wade was a landmark case of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 that upheld a woman’s right to abortion without much interference from the government.
