2,926 voters participated in this survey

Millions of women across the US could soon lose their legal right to abortion, according to a leaked Supreme Court document. The document, published by Politico, suggests the country's top court is poised to overturn the 1973 decision that legalised abortion nationwide. The Supreme Court's justices are expected to issue a ruling in late June or early July. Roe v Wade is in the court's sights because Mississippi is asking for it to be overturned. The justices heard that case in December.

3. The Supreme Court has been reshaped by three appointments under former President Donald Trump, and has been called the most conservative-leaning in modern US history. Six of the nine current justices were appointed by Republican presidents. The other three were picked by Democratic presidents. The court needs a majority to set a ruling. Do you agree with the current method of the President appointing judges to the Supreme court or should the public be able to elect them ?

Agree with the President doing it

4. The leaked document - labelled "1st Draft" - appears to reflect the majority opinion of the court, and Politico reports that it was written by Justice Samuel Alito and circulated within the court on 10 February. But it is unclear if it represents a final opinion, as justices have previously changed their views during the drafting process. The Supreme Court and the White House have not yet commented. Do you think Roe V Wade will be overturned ?
