It's hard to fathom how William J. O'Conner was able to get a feature on the editorial page with opinions best suited to a fact-free radical blog.
"Abortion advocates"? Really? Does he know anyone promoting more abortions?
Brainwashed followers like O'Conner would have people believe a court decision is the reason abortion exists. Abortion has been around as long as mankind. For everyone involved, it's a heart-wrenching choice, whatever the reason behind it.
Some religions might rail against the choice individuals make, but they are not empowered to intervene. Roe v. Wade simply acknowledged the truth -- matters of personal choice are not subject to government mandate.
In the U.S., separation of church and state demands religious dogma not be considered. A lawyer should know this.
We have experimented with legislating individual behavior and personal choice. Making abortion illegal has never and will never make it go away.
