Last month the Supreme Court declined to block the Texas abortion ban from going into effect. The Atlantic staff writer Adam Serwer blasted the conservative majority on the court and wrote they were “so eager” to nullify Roe v. Wade, “it didn’t even wait for oral arguments.”
Weeks later, Justice Samuel Alito delivered a speech that, in part, addressed criticisms of the Supreme Court — including Serwer’s.
He read from the above line in Serwer’s article and called it “false and inflammatory” to say they “nullif[ied] Roe v. Wade.”
