Laurence Tribe— Harvard Law School.: "Behind its own verbal smokescreen, the substantive judgment on which it rests is nowhere to be found."
The Supreme Court, 1972 Term—Foreword: Toward a Model of Roles in the Due Process of Life and Law,” 87 Harvard Law Review 1, 7 (1973)
Ruth Bader Ginsburg — Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:
“Roe, I believe, would have been more acceptable as a judicial decision if it had not gone beyond a ruling on the extreme statute before the court.… Heavy-handed judicial intervention was difficult to justify and appears to have provoked, not resolved, conflict.”
North Carolina Law Review, 1985
John Hart Ely — Yale Law School, Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School
Roe “is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.”
….
“What is frightening about Roe is that this super-protected right is not inferable from the language of the Constitution, the framers’ thinking respecting the specific problem in issue, any general value derivable from the provisions they included, or the nation’s governmental structure. Nor is it explainable in terms of the unusual political impotence of the group judicially protected vis-à-vis the interest that legislatively prevailed over it.… At times the inferences the Court has drawn from the values the Constitution marks for special protection have been controversial, even shaky, but never before has its sense of an obligation to draw one been so obviously lacking.”
“The Wages of Crying Wolf: A Comment on Roe v. Wade,” 82 Yale Law Journal, 920, 935-937 (1973).
Richard Cohen — Washington Post
“[T]he very basis of the Roe v. Wade decision — the one that grounds abortion rights in the Constitution — strikes many people now as faintly ridiculous. Whatever abortion may be, it cannot simply be a matter of privacy.”
….
“As a layman, it’s hard for me to raise profound constitutional objections to the decision. But it is not hard to say it confounds our common-sense understanding of what privacy is.
“If a Supreme Court ruling is going to affect so many people then it ought to rest on perfectly clear logic and up-to-date science. Roe , with its reliance on trimesters and viability, has a musty feel to it, and its argument about privacy raises more questions than it answers.
….
Roe “is a Supreme Court decision whose reasoning has not held up. It seems more fiat than argument.”
“Still, a bad decision is a bad decision. If the best we can say for it is that the end justifies the means, then we have not only lost the argument — but a bit of our soul as well.”
“Support Choice, Not Roe” Washington Post, October 19, 2005.
Read the cut and paste before, many times. But again, I don't see anyone headed for the Supreme Court any time in the near future--although there are some who would like to stack the court in hopes of getting the decision that they desire.

But, let's see some credible figures on abortion as a big money generator.

Do you think limb transplants and invitro fertilization have always existed? Last night I read about the program in Louisville that may have them growing new hearts for people from their own stem cells.
Progress, Reader...something liberals have a lot of issues with.

So, NBC is cancelling all your favorite anti-Christian sit-coms?
That would be a good thing for you, wouldn't it?
Or do you just enjoy feeling all superior?
I only watched "Sunday Night Football" on NBC, until Costas ripped the Second Amendment and I quit watching even that. I don't even know what the shows are about, but I do know they are failing because I follow the ratings.

Anything NBC puts up, I want to see it fail. They are the regime's biggest sycophants.

Twist, twist. Karl merely suggested that there might be such a procedure in the future. And I have no doubt that it will be perfected and is being worked on now.

They'll find a way to pass oxygen,nutrition and antibiotics, whatever necessary, to the unborn fetus.

You're an idiot. I know an ex-patriot who took up citizenship in another country and still spends 90% of his time in the US.

Hell, look at all the illegal immigrants that do it, pay no taxes and qualify for entitlements. Is that you?

In fact, dear lady, the moral piece that you reject has to do with accepting responsibility for the actions of society.
If our society, as you propose, not only outlaws abortion, but also neglects sex education (which you have also suggested) and stands in the way of equitable access to contraceptives (which others have advocated); and if our society remains unconcerned with providing equitable access to the basic tools by which one may earn a living (education and jobs); then our society must either accept responsibility for the children born into unprepared families or be judged immoral.
I am quite certain that you disagree. You believe that morality is simply a matter of keeping your knees together--something which I will wager you also did not manage to do. Don't confuse not having gotten caught with having a higher moral standard.
LMAO Whatever I did with my knees, cost no one else a dime and did not set a bad example for my young nieces. It that all you've got?

So now it is not personal responsibility, but society's? You're really an oddball.

I have never opposed sex education. Just think it's better taught in the home, after a lesson in mortality. Never opposed contraception. I applaude contraception. It just doesn't work from the glove compartment or dresser drawer.

But, funny, when there was less available contraception, there were less pregnancies and abortions. As Karl pointed out.

I don't know what fits you better: Skimmer, dodger or twister.

I don't see any point in arguing what you think liberals will go to court over should the day come that fetus transplants are a possibility.

Unless you want to argue whether the designer baby folks will be willing to accept fetuses sired by a rapist or commiter of incest. And let's not even go there when it comes to the race, or possible race of one or the other parent. Or the addiction of the pregnant woman. Or a baby with possible deformities.

You simply need to open your mind. As I said, every informed, thinking citizen can point to a time or incident in US history that qualifies as shameful.
