After somebody inside the Supreme Court leaked a draft opinion indicating the very real possibility that Roe v. Wade would be overturned, the waiting began:

Almost right away, the Principled Conservatives™ at The Lincoln Project came out in defense of Roe v. Wade.

Next up to make the conservative case for not overturning Roe v. Wade is the New York Times’ Bret Stephens:

It definitely depends on what your definition of “conservative” is.

Wow, this is a “conservative” doozy:

The fact that the draft of Justice Alito’s decision was leaked — which Chief Justice Roberts rightly described as an “egregious breach” of trust — is a foretaste of the kind of guerrilla warfare the court should expect going forward. And not just on abortion: A court that betrays the trust of Americans on an issue that affects so many, so personally, will lose their trust on every other issue as well.

The word “conservative” encompasses many ideas and habits, none more important than prudence. Justices: Be prudent.

So conservative justices shouldn’t do conservative things because this particular “guerrilla warfare” leaking could worsen? Maybe just punish the leaker(s) so it doesn’t continue.

It’s a total mystery (cue eye roll).

“Don’t fight back so hard against the Left to get them to stop with the leftist tactics” doesn’t seem to be a bold strategy.
