Mary Ann Glendon and Carter Snead and “The Case for Overturning Roe”

Here is a link to a good essay by Mary Ann Glendon and Carter Snead entitled “The Case for Overturning Roe.” The essay is in National affairs. Here is their conclusion:

“Nothing in the Constitution or the Court’s role requires such a deleterious framing of the complex human relationships at stake. The Court has no business in this space. It should remove itself from it and restore to the people’s elected representatives the authority to pursue laws and policies designed to meet the genuine needs of the vulnerable families involved in these often-tragic situations.”
