    Read roe. They looked under every rock out there for some precedent that they could use to justify abortion. They certainly didn't limit themselves to SC cases or the Constitution.

    You seem to have a comprehension problem with regard to reading. I do stick to the law, but that doesn't mean that I accept whatever the law says as right. If a legal decison can be justified, then it is fine to say "it's legal" and then go on to justify the decision. If the decsion can not be rationally justified then simply pointing out a bad, unjustified decision hardly constitutes a rational argument.

    Or, to put it another way, being a law-abiding person does not require one to pretend that "It should be legal . . . because it's legal!" is a valid - or even sensible - argument.

    True, the court's own test for the validity of the case has failed.

    I shouldn't even have to say this, but a woman's decisions about birth control are between her and her doctor, not her boss.

    But the Trump administration is about to finalize a new regulation that quietly rolls back Obamacare protections for contraceptive care. This would not only allow employers to refuse to cover birth control, but it would also lift the requirement to report their refusal so women can get birth control coverage directly through an insurer.

    This would be a huge step backward for women's rights, and I'm going to fight it every step of the way. But I need to hear your thoughts.

    Should a woman's boss decide if she gets birth control?

    Maybe women should have voted for Hillary.

    Eh, her, her doctor and the life of an innocent human being, I wonder why you forgot the most important part...

    So you're saying that humanity is defined as being a 100% healthy adult, and anything else is not humanity?

    A fetus has to receive his nourishment from his mother, this is true, but so does a newborn. So do people who are paralyzed. So do people in comas. So do many of the elderly in nursing homes. I sincerely hope you would view all of those as still being people.
