    Who here believes that Roe v Wade will be overturned in his/her lifetime?

    Just curious.

    I believe that it's a very real possibility.

    I say no chance in hell.


    So far it's 1 apiece. Anyone else?

    hehehe..


    I bet you were similarly confident about that during SCOTUS nominations, eh?

    :rolleyes:


    I know, I know... 30 year old by-products of the supreme court that STILL moves pro-lifers to rally support really is just a fad!

    It won't be overturned. Some day it may be the power will be reverted where it belongs, at the State level, but the Court will never ban abortion.

    I can't imagine the power will ever be given back to the states. The separation of power between the states and fed has historically only moved in one direction, and you know which direction that is.

    It has already started to switch, the argument no longer is that States can not legislate abortion only to what degree.

    RvW wouldn't have to be overturned with a little savvy legislation. The court has already been prepared for just that kind of thing.

    Yup, all it takes is the right wording and it is no longer a " right".
