"Globe zoom how the world connects This is morning edition from NPR news I'm Leila Fulton And I'm a Martinez After the league draft of a Supreme Court decision to overturn roe hit the Internet this week Democrats quickly found themselves talking about how an array of rights besides abortion are under threat such as gay marriage and birth control Here's Joe Biden speaking this week What are the next things that are going to be attacked Because this maga crowd is really the most extreme political organization that's existed in American history NPR political correspondent Daniel Kurtz laban is here to talk us through this about what it means both legally and politically Daniel Let's start with the legal side of things or gay marriage and birth control connected to abortion legally They are connected And the idea in row is that abortion is an unenumerated right That is it's one that the constitution protects even if the constitution doesn't explicitly say so And the idea is that it's abortion is protected by the Fourteenth Amendment which the court has used to protect people's right to privacy So Alito argues that when that Fourteenth Amendment was passed in 1868 American law didn't recognize abortion as a fundamental right therefore he says the right to an abortion isn't protected Now that logic could carry over to a lot of other rights says Mary ziegler who is a visiting professor at Harvard Law School At the time the relevant part of the constitution was written the same sex couples could not marry interracial couples certainly couldn't marry Birth control was being criminalized And so the logic is if that's how we determine where our constitutional rights begin and end there's no reason that would stop with abortion Now Alito does write in the opinion that roe is separate from those other rights because it's specifically about fetal life But that doesn't mean the court can't change its mind in the future Yeah this has quickly become a central message for Democrats What's the political logic behind that You know I've asked a lot of supporters of abortion rights how they feel about that message because those activists have criticized people like Biden heavily for seeming reluctant to talk about abortion or even use the word So grouping abortion in with other rights might come off as reluctant or changing the subject But Renee bracey Sherman who is the founder of abortion rights advocacy group we testify She told me that this is about making voters see abortion as a fundamental part of a landscape of rights that are all interconnected And that it's about just educating voters Here's what she said A lot of people think I might never need an abortion And a lot of people think about all issues Like oh I'm not trans I don't black Let us please brutality matter to me But I think what people don't realize is how much something like roe V wade is the bedrock of so many other things legally All right so well what do we know then about how that argument will play with voters in November because if you look at the national landscape Democrats were not expected to do well in the midterms could this help them Well let's start with some basic numbers A majority of Americans believe that abortion should be legal in some or all circumstances But a plurality are in that some category They think there should be some restrictions And that's important because pollster tressa undam told me that along those lines a lot of Americans just don't feel very emotional about the topic of abortion It just doesn't come up much for them But that could change if row is overturned That is going to break through to people They don't have to read a political article They're going to hear about it They're going to be upset about it They're going to be surprised by it Maybe not shocked but surprised So if people who don't normally think about abortion much hear that this right could be taken away they could be angry That said we don't know how this is going to play out We're an uncharted territory And by the way there are more immediate consequences If row is overturned greater abortion restrictions will start before November NPR's Daniel Kurtz laban Daniel thanks Thank you In Grand Rapids Michigan there are increasing calls to charge the police officer who shot and killed a black driver during a traffic stop last month While the investigation is ongoing the officer is still on the payroll and receiving benefits From member station WGU Kylie ambu reports It's been about a month since residents here were stunned by the fatal shooting of 26 year old Patrick Leo The black Congolese refugee was killed by Christopher scher a white Grand Rapids police officer following a scuffle during a traffic stop Stop Stop Body camera footage shows her making the stop when he's unable to match the license plate with the car Leo is driving When Cher made physical contact Leo ran away leading to a foot chase and a struggle over the officer's taser The scuffle ended with sure on top of a face down Leo and sure shooting him in the back of the head Officer sure is on paid leave and stripped of his policing duties pending an investigation by Michigan state police Patrick lewes parents call the killing unjustified Speaking through an interpreter his father Peter says it was an execution of his first born son I was thinking that place And to see that my son has been killed like an animal by this police officer I see that I have no life I see my heartbeat broken I'm asking for justice The Grand Rapids police officer association has thrown its support behind sure It released a statement calling Leo's death tragic But affirming Christopher sure's actions saying an officer quote has the legal right to protect themselves and community and a volatile dangerous situation such as this in order to return to his or her family at the end of their shift While Michigan state police investigate the incident ultimately it's Kent county prosecutor Christopher Becker who will determine whether to charge her in lieu of death There have been calls for Becker to recuse himself because of the long-standing relationship between the prosecutor's office and police department But Becker says there's no reason he should step down I don't know any of the individuals about the case I don't know the officer involved They don't know mister Lee oh so the law is pretty clear on when disqualifications appropriate and none of those are met here I've done numerous officer involved shootings over the past 6 years have been elected I don't know why it would change now Becker has received a preliminary investigative report from the state police but says he still waiting on forensic findings from the manufacturer of the body camera and taser No idea what comes back could be or sharing could be nothing but you don't want to make a decision before you get that material As the city awaits public pressure continues to mount for police reform We are fighting for our lives too We could be the next country There have been weekend protests and marches that have shut down a city commission meeting Additionally since 2020 activists like ola banji ola tu day have been rallying for police reform If people would have listened and would have been preventable But now it's just like I told you so long That's exactly what it is.
