Here is some of the reaction from Democrats over the allegedly leaked opinion that shows Roe may be overturned by the Supreme Court:
Christina Bohannan, Democrat candidate for U.S. House District 1:
As a law professor I have read all 200 cases on abortion in Iowa dating back the 1800s. When abortion was illegal in Iowa, there were still many abortions. The only difference back then is that women died.
I am pro-choice because I cannot be complicit in that. We cannot go back.

Failed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton:
Not surprising. But still outrageous.
This decision is a direct assault on the dignity, rights, & lives of women, not to mention decades of settled law. It will kill and subjugate women even as a vast majority of Americans think abortion should be legal. What an utter disgrace. https://t.co/TNo1IX3Tl4

Also failed presidential candidate, Sen. Amy Klobuchar:
It is a fundamental right for a woman to make her own health decisions. We must protect the right to choose and codify Roe v Wade into law.

Another failed presidential candidate, Congressman Eric Swalwell:
If you think they'll stop with a women's right to choose, you haven't been paying attention. We have to fight like our lives depend on it, because clearly, they do.

Democrat leader of the Iowa House, Rep. Jennifer Konfrst:
Right up there with the earthquake that is losing agency over my own body. https://t.co/o4pEyu7PJX

Failed socialist presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders:
Congress must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade as the law of the land in this country NOW. And if there aren’t 60 votes in the Senate to do it, and there are not, we must end the filibuster to pass it with 50 votes.
— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) May 3, 2022
Chair of Iowa Democrats and State Rep. Ross Wilburn:
I know that many of us feel afraid right now, but we have the power to elect champions for reproductive freedoms this fall who will write the protections of Roe into law at both the federal and state level.

Senior correspondent for Vox, Ian Millhiser:
Seriously, shout out to whoever the hero was within the Supreme Court who said “fuck it! Let’s burn this place down.”

Democrat State Rep. Molly Donahue:
This is a war against women that's been smoldering since the '70s, without codifying Roe v. Wade. SCOTUS draft leak is out. This is the extreme right imposing it’s views on the entire country.
— Molly Donahue (@MDonahueforIA) May 3, 2022
We will not back down. Access to abortion is a fundamental right. Period.
— Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin (@PPAWI) May 3, 2022
Democrat U.S. Senate candidate, Mike Franken:
This is a direct attack on women and 100% unacceptable. The government should not be allowed to regulate women's health.https://t.co/quiDod1waL

Candidate for U.S. Senate, Alex Lasry:
I’m outside SCOTUS right now.
I'm enraged and grieving, not just for my wife and daughter, but for women in Wisconsin and all across the country.
Abortion care is worth fighting for, and I promise Wisconsinites I will do just that. pic.twitter.com/urCwXvQunr

Democrat candidate for Iowa Governor, Deidre DeJear:
Tonight women across our nation are angry and they are scared. I see you. Let this soak in tonight…because tomorrow we don't mourn, we get back to work to ensure that every Iowan has access to the healthcare and reproductive care that they need. #WeAreWorthFightingFor
