Roe v. Wade error

Letter to the Editor | Monday, April 21, 2008

In his letter “The pragmatically pro-life party,” (Apr. 17) Andrew Dreyfuss claims that if Roe v. Wade were overturned, “all forms of abortion” would be “illegal.” This is not true. If Roe v. Wade were overturned, the authority to permit or limit abortion would return to state legislatures, where it rested before the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973.

    Abortion laws might be the same in Democratic states, but in Republican states it would just be a question of time until all abortions were turned illegal, even the ones done to save the woman’s life. So Andrew Dreyfuss is kind of right.
