WASHINGTON—Representative Scott Franklin, a member of the Pro-Life Caucus, issued the following statement in response to the leaked Supreme Court opinion on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“As a stalwart defender of the unborn, I would welcome a Supreme Court decision that overturns Roe v. Wade and restores the most basic right under our Constitution, the right to life. That said, the leaking of the draft Dobbs opinion was deliberate and clearly designed to intimidate the independent judicial integrity of the Court. Tactics like this are reprehensible and serve only to further politicize our judicial system. I look forward to reviewing the Supreme Court Marshal’s investigation into this attempt to obstruct the judicial branch of our government.”
