White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre readily slammed Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt for signing the nation’s “most extreme” abortion ban into law and in the same breath blamed President Trump's supporters for rolling back women's rights as she claimed Abortion is a fundamental right.

Jean-Pierre said during Thursday’s briefing that the legislation would “undo a woman’s fundamental right to make her own reproductive choices.” A draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was published earlier this month.

“Not only does this law ban abortion from the moment of fertilization, but it also adopts Texas’s plan to allow private citizens to sue their neighbors for providing reproductive healthcare and helping women to exercise their constitutional rights,” she continued, saying that the “law is the latest in a growing effort by ultra-MAGA officials across the country to roll back freedoms that should not be taken for granted.”

Jean-Pierre added that “Roe has been the law of the land for almost 50 years, and it is under serious threat.” She suggested that Roe’s expected reversal this summer by the Supreme Court will soon give way to attacks on other contraceptive rights.

“The President believes that women have the fundamental right to make their own reproductive health choices,” Jean-Pierre said. “He and the Vice President and the entire Administration are committing to protecting these constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms.”

A draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked to Politico, which published the story on May 2. In it, Alito unashamedly rejected the court’s abortion jurisprudence in both Roe and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey ruling. “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he writes in a document marked as the “Opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

The substance of the leak and the leak itself, an unusual breach of discretion for the high court, were big stories on their own. Together, they consumed all the oxygen the news cycle had to offer.

People rushed into the streets. By that night, up to 1,000 gathered outside the Supreme Court, mostly in protest. Barriers were erected to protect the building, with memories of the January 6 Capitol attack last year still fresh. The assembled were carrying signs with slogans such as “You can’t stop abortion” and “Be pro-abortion, POTUS.”

President Joe Biden did not disappoint the young woman wielding the second placard. “My administration argued strongly before the Court in defense of Roe v. Wade,” he said in a statement issued by the White House Tuesday morning. “I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental, Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.”
