  1. What makes you think that the current crew in the House, Senate and White House won’t try to ban it? Sure it might get struck down under the new federalism, but I wouldn’t hang my hat on that.

  2. The states would have the final say if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

  3. Ugh: it would revert to state legislatures, which is where it was prior to Roe.

  4. I do believe most of the “elite” who are opining on this topic understands exactly what will happen, but votes need to be sought, money must be raised, so emotions must be exploited.

  5. I am fascinated by the discourse on judicial appointments, which, like this one, concern themslves solely with *outcomes*, and only with regard to abortion, while ignoring legal reasoning. When Roe was decided, I was an ardent advocate for choice. I was pleased with the *outcome*, but profoundly uncomfortable with the rationale. I remain, though less ardently, pro-choice. Still, I would like to see Roe overturned, or better rationalized, because the kind of reasoning it and its progeny represent-beyond the abortion debate-has borne such awful fruit. So yes, it’s all about judicial philosophy, for me. I don’t think I’m alone.

    Hmmm. How about existence in the real world instead of an imaginary world filled with fundamentalist bogeymen?

  7. What if the majority reasoned in overturning Roe that Roe was unConstitutional because the fetus was a human with a right to life and therefore necistated inclusion under murder laws. Wouldn’t that that effectively make abortion illegal in all states?
