Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito wants you to think his decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is about restoring democracy. [His] nod to democratic decision-making, however, rings false. He and his fellow conservative justices removed barriers to partisan gerrymandering that limits the ability of the people to elect representatives who reflect their priorities. He also backed decisions that gutted crucial voting rights protections for minority communities. And, in dissents he has written or joined, he backed even greater limitations on the ability of the people to choose their representatives.
