Abortion Constitutionality

Dave Andrusko on the Zeigler & Tsai analysis of pro-life strategy

Here is a good piece by Dave Andrusko in the National Right to Life News. Andrusko makes some good comments about a long essay by Mary Zeigler and Robert Tsai in Politico. That long essay  (“How the Anti-Abortion Movement Used the Progressive Playbook to Chip Away at Roe v. Wade,”) describes how “The tactics that advanced civil rights and gay rights have been put to work against abortion.” Zeigler and Tsai discuss how the pro-life movement has used an incremental strategy to undermine Roe and Casey; this strategy has brought us to the potential  overruling of Roe and Casey.

The Andrusko piece and the Zeigler/Tsai essay are both worth reading.
