U.S. senators gathered alongside protesters on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to celebrate and oppose the leaked draft opinion published by Politico Monday night. The draft opinion as written showed that a majority of justices on the court would vote to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that established the right to abortion.

So far, Chief Justice John Roberts has authenticated the draft opinion and launched an investigation into how the draft got leaked, though he noted it does not represent the court's final opinion. Several governors have made a statements about where their states stand on the issue.
