1st Trimester Abortions Banned b/c New Research?


*A recently published law review article suggests that a ban on abortion, even in the first trimester, may now be allowed under the legal standards established in the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v Wade decision. The team of authors, including medical researchers, physicians, and an attorney, argue that this shift in practice, arising from new medical evidence of abortion’s risks, will not require a change in constitutional law.

That’s interesting. It means that the Constitutional precept of the right to life will go back to the way it WAS before Roe v Wade. SO, this wouldn’t be a change, but a reversion. Roe v Wade was the change.
