Why Roe Said what it did

Here is a link to “41 Years Later: Why Roe Said What It Did,” Justin Buckley Dyer’s summary of Clarke Forsythe’s book, Abuse of Discretion on the Library of Law and Liberty web page.

Forsythe, a man who has spent his life for pro-life causes, makes a strong case for returning the issue back to American legislatures and renewing the public debate about the “foundation for equal dignity and human flourishing in our democratic republic.” As Forsythe shows in Abuse of Discretion, that debate has been stunted and skewed by a badly reasoned decision imprudently rendered by an inept Court with disastrous political consequences that continue to haunt us today.
