Roe v. Wade dealt with viability, the ability to survive outside the womb,and not with when life begins. In fact, in the majority opinion for Roe v. Wade, written by the late Justice Harry Blackmun, he says: We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. He also wrote that if the unborn life was proven to be a person, the appellants case, of course, collapses, for the fetus right to life is then guaranteed. Certainly medical technology has advanced a lot since 1973, forcing a redefinition of at viability means. A 'wise Latina' should know this.
Ah, the old “settled law” ploy is back again. There is no such thing as “settled law”. The left uses the same approach to the bogus global warming “crisis”. It is called “settled science”. I have never heard of “settled science” either. Actually saying there is such a thing as “settled science” is an oxymoron.

Were it settled, over 50% of the people would not be against it. The Roe v Wade decision was an abomination against God. It will not stand forever.
Why is it when the Left really screws up, it results in millions of deaths? I'm thinking of the Roe v. Wade, Nazis, Soviets, Chicoms, Vietnam, Cambodia, Somalia, Cuber, and probably dozens of other socialist utopias I've forgotten that murdered millions.
Why is it that the hard sciences learn from the past while apparently every new behavioral or poly sci PHD thinks no one before him had a deep thought?
