1) No. Contrary to the religious fanatics, the UVVA does not apply to abortion 2)States do not have the power to restrict abortion. The first trimester restriction was, in fact, part of the Roe v. Wade decision. Later USSC rulings have nullified that restriction (erroneously, in my opinion) 3) Even if Roe were overturned (an appeal would have no bearing) it would be possible for states to criminalize abortion. But not to define it as manslaughter or any other form of homicide. Again, contrary to the religious fanatics, the fetus is NOT a person under the law--and never has been. 4) No. You misinterpret the intent and meaning of the Constitution. First, it does not "grant" rights. Second it specifically states that any rights not specifically enumerated (listed) nevertheless exist, and are protected--they are "reserved to the people, or to the states"--and may not be taken away by the federal government. 5) No. Nor is that an "opinion." Roe v. Wade clearly did not allow partial birth abortions. See answer #2. Nor would the USSC at that time have even considered allowing partial birth abortions. That is due to later decisions which are primarily due not to "liberals" but to the tactics of the religous right. By attempting to stereotype anyone who spoke out against their religious extremism on the topic, they legitimized the (equally extreme) pro-abortion elements at the fringes of the pro-choice side, thereby opening the door to allow them to get extreme procedures like partial birth abortion legalized. I suggest you read more about Roe v. Wade. Any good Constitutional Law book on civil liberties and civil rights will have a good section on it. Look under political science, not law books.

To divide and conquer Or they just killed the next Hitler, rapist or murderer. Yes, the world IS overpopulated and getting more so every day, sure we can all just line up in Australia with our little barren gardens and die, because we won't have any WATER. There is allot more needed in this world then space. Simplistic solutions such as yours indicate someone that doesn't really think anything through. While I do not think that abortion is by any stretch of the imagination a good thing but I don't think anyone should have the right to make that kind of life changing decision for someone they don't even know. Personally I believe in aggressive birth control including the day after pill and IUDs.

All sides really need to stop judging and start cooperating to reduce abortions. Back in the day, Roe v. Wade came in when husbands were still getting away with "forbidding" their wives from using contraception. Women had to have sex with their spouses and could not get away with using birth control, the family doctor would rat them out to the husband. So there were clinics set up that would give you bc pills and not tell your husband if he asked. The wonderful fantasy fifties spawned a lot of these laws, and now that husbands no longer can control their wives, divorced women are no longer looked down upon as slutty bimbos, and single mothers are no longer looked upon as the scum of the earth, we need a new approach that reduces abortions. But don't you ever again dare to try and control women's reproductive lives.

All I know is that as of today 12/16/08 Roe v. Wade is the law. You may have wanted to post this in ethics and law.

With every abortion you just possibly killed the cure for aids or cancer. You just killed something that for a time had the potential to lead the world in new fields of science and mathematics. You just killed some one who could have been a beautiful wife or a respectable loving husband. You just killed some one who could have been some ones father or mother. You just killed an endless possibility of greatness and human growth. YOU JUST KILLED THE ONLY PERSON WHO WOULD EVER LOVE YOU! I could go on and on like this for days... Don't be fooled by the BS. The world is not over populated. It is just extremely poorly managed. You could fit every person on the planet in Australia with enough room for their own garden. That would leave the entire rest of the planet completely empty. You could have just killed the one who lead us out of this ****. Notice I didn't use religion or God any where. It doesn't take any of that to realize that abortion is wrong. You guys are right about the choice, but the choice ends for you when you choose to have sex. Choices have consequences. After that your "choice" is made for another person. Abortion is an eject button for those who can't deal with irresponsibility.

I think that a woman should have the right to choose, I don't think that's even an option for someone else to be able to tell her what to do with HERself, Though I don't believe you should do it if you wait to long, I think you should do it as soon as possible if you are going to do it. But I still think it's up to a woman, not up to a country or a state.

Roe vs. Wade must go. On that day, look for violence and mayhem, with blood running in the streets. If you take away the "right" to murder your unborn for convenience, this is what will happen, just like in France where those spoiled young people practically burned the entire country down when they couldn't get their way. Windows will be broken and you could see people hanging from lamp posts. Already, look at what the homosexuals are doing when they didn't get their way with sodomitic marriage. They're roaming the nation and committing vandalism and attacks on people that the media is doing its best to conceal. The wrong people all need to be put in their place and our country needs to be restored to sound law. We also need to impeach that scumbag, Barack Hussein Obama, or better yet, block his inauguration because of falsification, fraud and possibly treason. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article...
