  • regarding abortion, Alito’s leaked draft says that women shouldn’t have a right to abortion because court decisions should “give primacy” to what’s “‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition’”—women were property until very recently, so obviously you won’t find any basis for women’s rights in “history and tradition”

It's sort of a standard phrase, but I don't want to put words in Chomsky's mouth, so I'm not sure.

Hi, Andrew—I recommend using just a normal pair of quotation marks (") on both sides of the quoted phrase and changing "what's" to "what Alito said/says is." I'm assuming that the words "deeply rooted in . . ." came from Alito.

  • . . . court decisions should "give primacy" to what Alito says is "deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition" . . .
