Meanwhile, on an another methodological front, Mrs. Chelsea Sinclair, of Fincastle, Nevada, dealt another blow to Roe V Wade by employing an even older technology: applied literacy. Mrs. Sinclair actually read the United States Constitution, beginning to end, aloud, to a professional association previously unfamiliar with the document, the 9th Circuit Federal Court. After a fourth and fifth reading, confused jurists had to admit they had not heard the word "abortion" once.

I kind of like the simple "words have meaning" approach, not only in the text of the U.S. Constitution, but also in the observation that: if it's not a "baby", well, then you're not "pregnant".

On the technological front, though, advances in medical science have shown the whole extent of the voodoo in Roe v. Wade. The clearest example I can think of is the ultrasound which has stripped the whole veil of mystery about the unborn child. That was not available in 1973, at least not to the general public.

But science makes no difference to abortion supporters because they are operating on a set of pagan religious beliefs and are completely closed to any facts.

Roe v Wade was passed by the SCOTUS based on a woman's right to privacy, not the right to an abortion.

The right to an abortion is predicated on a woman's right to PRIVACY, a First Amendment issue!

I, along with many others, would like to see Roe V Wade overturned, and then it can become what it always should have been - a state's right issue.
