Sunday broadcast preview: US rocked by Supreme Court leak; Biden announces more aid to Ukraine

The leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that would reverse Roe against Wade and the continued Russian invasion of Ukraine is set to dominate the Sunday broadcast circuit this weekend.

On Monday, Politico released a draft opinion by conservative Judge Samuel Alito on a Mississippi abortion law that would ban the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The draft advisory would effectively remove federal protections against abortion and leave the decision on the matter to the states.

The document was drafted in February, but its release this week sent shockwaves across the country, prompting condemnation from many Democrats and protests in several cities across the country.

“The votes reported by Republican-appointed justices to overturn Roe v Wade would be considered an abomination, one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said ( D-Calif.), who will appear on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” said after the leak broke.

In the Senate, Democrats want to vote on legislation that would protect abortion rights across the country, even though they likely won’t be able to garner enough support.

“Now that the court is about to strike down Roe, I intend to have the Senate vote on legislation codifying the right to abortion into law,” the Senate Majority Leader said Tuesday. Charles Schumer (DN.Y.). “A vote on this legislation is not an abstract exercise. It’s as urgent and real as it gets. We will vote to protect women’s right to choose.

“It is a fundamental right for a woman to make her own health decisions. We must protect the right to choose and codify Roe v Wade into law,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) tweeted earlier this week.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) will be on ABC’s “This Week.”

Republicans, whose senses. Marco Rubio (Florida) and Ted Cruz (Texas), called for an investigation and repercussions for the culprit following the leak. They expressed outrage that such an unprecedented disclosure had taken place before a final decision was made. Some GOP members claimed that the person who leaked the document was liberal-leaning.

“The next time you hear the far left preaching about how they are fighting to preserve the institutions and standards of our Republic, remember how they leaked a Supreme Court opinion in an attempt to intimidate the judges on abortion,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tweeted after the news.

Cruz will appear on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”

There will also be a focus on the Biden administration’s continued assistance to Ukraine ahead of Russia’s VE Day.

Officials said Russia plans to formally declare war on Ukraine on May 9. May 9 is “Victory Day” in Russia and is a public holiday that celebrates the defeat of Nazi Germany.

However, Russia has denied these claims.

On Friday, President Biden said the United States was sending a security assistance package including ammunition to Ukraine worth $150 million.

“Today, the United States remains strong in support of the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their country against Russia’s continued aggression,” Biden said.

The new package adds to the billions in aid the United States has given Ukraine since Russia invaded the country.

Oksana Markarova, Ukraine’s Ambassador to the United States, will be on CBS’ “Face the Nation” show.
