    Roe v. Wade makes campaign comeback - Decision '08 - MSNBC.com

    Turn back the clock on women's rights? Hmmm...what about men's right to not have their babies murdered without their approval?

    Or the right of children to not be killed willy-nilly?

    Roe v. Wade should be repealed because no where in the Constitution does it give the federal government discretion over abortion. The issue should be left to the states.

    Who's for letting States decide this one?

    Yeah!!! I didn't see your post until I had posted mine.


    I was wondering, how would a procedure like that be? Like the State assemblies would vote on it, or referendums... I've always kind of been curious about what "letting the states decide" mean (besides the obvious). Does every state have to make a decision? Can there be a mandate so that States make a decision on it and move on within some sort of time frame? And what if on some states they just don't rule for or against it?

    I'm pro-choice but agree with Kennedy. Pro-choice states like Flordia should be able to profit off of pregger women in Alabama and Georgia wanting an abortion. Imagine the tourism campaign:

    Come for the abortion, stay for the sun.

    Amen.

    Even my liberal Con Law prof could see that. He talked about "agreeing with the result of a decision while disapproving of the method."

    Roe v Wade is safe. It will not be overturned no matter who gets elected. It is not about abortion it is a law about privacy.
