    Rising Support for Abortion Rights Despite Anti-Choice Activism and State Sabotage of the ability to exercise those rights.

    Roe v Wade

    Roe v. Wade

    I find it interesting that no one left or right has commemorated this anniversary. One would think the pretend libertarians would be celebrating the right of the individual to assert dominion over her own body... but they don't. the real libertarians do, though.

    one might also wonder where the pretend constitutionalists are when it comes to defending our right of privacy from government intrusion into our lives.

    they are no where to be found.

    and still the majority of us support the right of a woman to be free of government interference during the first trimester of a pregnancy.

    abortion should be safe, readily available and infrequently needed.

    It’s the consequence of the bane of social conservatism, and some bizarre perception of states’ rights, where the ‘tyranny’ of the Federal government is condemned yet the states are allowed to exact the same tyranny with impunity.

    they don't much care for the whole states' rights thing when it comes to guns. isn't that funny? well, no, it's not really... they know that rights can be abridged if one works them on a state by state basis.

    like what is happening in mississippi.

    Yes, the old ‘but that’s not in the Constitution’ dodge.

    Of course neither ‘self-defense’ nor ‘individual’ are found in the Second Amendment.

    Perhaps the reason why the 40th anniversary has gone relatively unnoted is because an entire generation of Americans has grown up enjoying the benefit of the right to privacy, just as they enjoy the right to free speech and freedom of assembly.

    Nope – that darn Constitution thing will just get in the way.
