    Roe v. Wade has been established law for 35 years; the right to choose is now a part of our culture. A decision to overrule it would not only disrupt and polarize the nation; it would also threaten countless doctors, and pregnant women and girls, with jail sentences and criminal fines. As Ginsburg has also urged, Roe v. Wade is now best seen, not only as a case about privacy, but also as involving sex equality. No one should disparage the convictions of those who believe that abortion is an immoral act. But after more than three decades, a decision...

    ( - A state lawmaker in South Dakota has introduced a bill making abortion a crime unless it is necessary to save the life of the mother. Rep. Matt McCaulley's bill (House Bill 1191) directly confronts the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which permitted abortion on demand. A majority of state lawmakers have pledged their support. The Thomas More Law Center, which is providing Rep. McCaulley with legal assistance, said the bill will generate a court battle if it is passed. But supporters don't see that as a deterrent: "Roe v.

    I'd like to show you guys something that I came across on the National Organization for Women (NOW) website. The title of the discussion is: NOW Reframing Abortion Rights Briefing on "Breaking the Abortion Deadlock, From Choice to Consent" Here are a few excerpts from the discussion. I'll place a link to the full article at the end. Eileen McDonagh: Most likely, there is no constitutional right to abortion funding, even if you are suffering from a medically abnormal pregnancy that threatens to kill you. Currently, Congress and states do provide legislative funding for abortions when a women's life is...
