Another somber anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton is upon us. These were the decisions rendered by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 that mandated abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy. Given the present alignment of political power in Washington, there is not much prospect of relief for the unborn, in the short term, resulting from congressional action.
Nor is there any chance that the new president will appoint a conservative, i.e., non-activist, jurist to the nation’s highest court who could cast a deciding vote for repeal or substantial curtailment of these truly radical decisions which are contrary to federalism, the rule of law, and basic morality.
