1973: Another awful anniversary of "Roe v Wade" and abortion in the US


It was on this day in 1973 that the Supreme Court made the awful Roe v Wade decision:
"In a historic decision, the U.S. Supreme Court rules in Roe v. Wade that women, as part of their constitutional right to privacy, can terminate a pregnancy during its first two trimesters. Only during the last trimester, when the fetus can survive outside the womb, would states be permitted to regulate abortion of a healthy pregnancy."
"Roe v Wade" was wrong on two counts:

First, abortion is the termination of a life.   I understand that some play word games but it is what it is, or the termination of a timeline that puts a little creature in a mother's arms.

Second, "Roe v Wade" did not settle anything.  It made abortion legal but the issue continues to divide the country.  It will continue to be a divisive issue until voters, not 5 Justices in the Supreme Court, decide it in the ballot box.

A very sad anniversary!    

Roe v Wade has also poisoned the well, as we saw with the attacks on Judge Bork when he was selected to The Supreme Court in 1987.
