Here are some reactions from Pennsylvania statewide candidates to the leak of an opinion draft from the Supreme Court indicating that the Court is prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade.

If true, this is of course the correct decision, both constitutionally and morally. But this leak is an outrageous attack on the Court.https://t.co/7Shyoe0NCL

If this is authentic, the Supreme Court and the DOJ must investigate this leak immediately and hold the responsible person(s) accountable.
Roe was wrongly-decided. The Court now has the opportuntiy to follow the Constitution and allow the states to protect the unborn. https://t.co/sxXjX7ae5K

The race for US Senate has never been more critical and Pennsylvania is ground zero.
But this can’t wait. The US Senate must act now to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act and preserve the right to choose.
But we must also expand the Supreme Court.

Pray for the end of Roe v Wade. This leak was intended to intimidate pro-life Justices. We must remain strong and always protect LIFE. https://t.co/ur9inGPxm4

Let’s be clear: The right to an abortion is sacred.
Democrats have to act quickly – get rid of the filibuster to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act + finally codify Roe into law.
We cannot afford to wait.

If Dems lose in PA, Congress may never save Roe. Poor women will suffer most.
I voted to put Roe into law, I’m endorsed by @NationalNOW, & I’ve voted 100% pro-choice while winning in GOP districts.
That’s my record. If I’m your nominee I’ll give you the campaign you deserve. https://t.co/SqsZkeBgg2
