An interesting abortion discussion
Hatrack River Forum: Sorry, I Need Some Opinions.
This thread actually has a higher-than-average signal/noise ratio for Hatrack. The discussion is interesting for a couple of reasons.
First of all, the fact that so many self-identified pro-choice people are willing to sanction some restrictions on abortion implies that the incremental strategy adopted by the pro-life movement may be working well, and may be able to accomplish a considerable amount more than the limited success so far (in achieving the partial-birth abortion ban).
Second, this discussion makes me think even more that it's high time the SC overturned Roe and explicitly returned the issue to the state legislatures. A shocking number of people seem willing to make principled compromises--instead of playing all or nothing judicial politics, perhaps we should let them, through their elected representatives.
