According to the Daily Mail, students took to social media to exercise their first amendment rights and called out conservative classmates, especially the law school’s Federalist Society.

Yale is alma mater to four U.S. Presidents: Gerald Ford LAW ’41, George H.W. Bush ’48, Bill Clinton LAW ’73 and George W. Bush.

“Neither the constitution nor the courts — nor the f—ing illusion of ‘democracy’ — are going to save us,” one student posted. 

“How can we possibly expect a document, drafted by wealthy, white, landowning men, to protect those who face marginalization that is the direct result of the very actions of the founders?”

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

The student’s note of desperation is reflected by a large majority of Americans who see that overturning Roe v Wade is just the thin edge of the wedge.

Next to be lost could be laws protecting the use of birth control, LGBTQ+ rights, same-sex marriage, interracial marriage and more.

Such sentiments are widespread at Yale Law School. In March, nearly two-thirds of the student body signed an open letter condemning the Federalist Society for hosting a bipartisan panel on free speech, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

“The members of YLS (Federalist Society) are conspirators in the Christo-fascist political takeover we all seem to be posting frantically about,” a first-year law student said in an Instagram posting.

“So why are they still coming to our parties/laughing in the library/roaming these weirdly high school-esque halls with precious few social consequences and without unrelenting daily confrontation?”

Student comments were leaked from private social media conversations, so names have been excluded.

The leak of the draft opinion has ignited fury over the potential rollback of abortion rights ahead of November’s key midterm elections.

The House-passed Women’s Health Protection Act would assure health care professionals have the right to provide abortions and that patients have the right to receive them.

That was killed by Republicans and one Democrat in the Senate last week.

That flies in the face of American opinion: a recent poll has 53% of voters saying Roe should not be overturned, up three percentage points since last week and  58 percent said it was important to vote for a candidate who supports abortion access.
