Progressive pundits and their guests have repeatedly repeated a slippery slope argument regarding the potential overthrow of Roe v. Wade, arguing that it could lead to outlawing interracial and same-sex marriage, contraceptives, and even overturning Brown v. Board of Education, the civil law landmark prohibiting racial segregation in schools.

According to newscasters, former administration officials and liberal analysts, the overturning of Roe v. Wade could open the door to the Supreme Court to overturn other precedents, such as the 1967 case Loving v. Virginia, and Obergefell v. Hodges in 2015. In those two cases, the Supreme Court ruled, respectively, that laws prohibiting interracial marriage violated the Constitution and that same-sex couples had the right to marry under the 14th Amendment.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell and former Obama attorney general Eric Holder worried about the possibilities Thursday during a discussion of the Supreme Court’s leaked draft opinion quashing Roe v. Wade.

“So the question has to be asked, is it just abortion that’s going to be at risk or is same-sex marriage going to be at risk?” He asked. “The regulation of contraception, is it going to be in danger? Even interracial marriage.”

Mitchell later asked him if decisions made during the civil rights era could be overturned, such as Brown v. Board of Education.

‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar echoed a similar thought when reacting to the leaked draft opinion on Roe, and predicted there would be ‘fascism down the line’. in the USA.

“Then they will go after same-sex marriage and maybe, maybe the board, what is it – Brown v. Board of Education,” she said.

MSNBC “The ReidOut” host Joy Reid, pointing out a section of Judge Samuel Alito’s draft opinion that discussed the “unbroken tradition of outlawing abortion” from the common law era to 1972, mentioned a number of other decisions that could be next on the Billot.

“It could apply to almost anything. Contraception, gay marriage, interracial marriage, civil rights, integration, women’s suffrage,” Reid said.

“They’ll come for gay marriage, they’ll come for interracial marriage, they’ll outlaw the peanut butter that comes with jelly in the same jar,” ABC host Jimmy Kimmel said late into the night as his audience booed. the idea.

ABC’s Terry Moran suggested that Alito’s opinion implied that rights not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution might ultimately be considered illegitimate.

“That would include same-sex marriage, maybe even interracial marriage,” Moran said.

CNN legal analyst Lauren Coates, after claiming that abortion is now “essentially gone,” took the reasoning even further and argued that basic rights, such as same-sex relationships and interstate travel, could also be reduced.
