Abortion Constitutionality

Anderson and George on the Fate of Roe v. Wade

Here is a good op-ed by Ryan Anderson and Robert George urging the US Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade. Here is their conclusion:

“While the current court may not be willing to go so far as to invalidate all legislation protecting abortionists, at the very least it must correct its own prior mistake of barring states from enacting legislation protecting unborn persons. Failure to do so will be, and will certainly be regarded as, a gross betrayal of the trust of those who worked to build a court whose members would be faithful constitutionalists. Worse than that, it would be a betrayal of persons in the womb.”
