    Same thing......

    Point being that even the words are not as clear as we'd like.

    I've seen vast arguments on the intent of the author of the 14th amendment. It depends on what you want.

    Clarity would have been good....

    But even then.....things change.

    Roe v. Wade supposedly created a "right" to abortion.

    That right was not universal has been clarified over time.

    And states have been slowly hemming it in on all sides.

    Nothing is ever static.
