Anno Domini MMXX - Notes for the Year - January 3rd: Roe should be overruled

"For while I was yet little I pleased the Most High, and from my womb have I brought forth God and man."
Roman Breviary
Responsory for the First Lesson for Matins, January 3rd


'Roe’s jurisprudence has been haphazard from the beginning. Roe did not actually hold that abortion was a “fundamental” constitutional right, but only implied it. ... Roe’s jurisprudence has been characterized by Delphic confusion and protean change.'
'[We] respectfully suggest that the court’s struggle—similar to dozens of other courts’ herculean struggles in this area—illustrates the unworkability of the “right to abortion” found in Roe and the need for the Court to take up the issue of whether Roe and Casey should be reconsidered and, if appropriate, overruled.'
