It has become cliché to point to some political move you disagree with and exclaim, “the founding fathers would be rolling in their graves!” The triteness is especially acute as it relates to how we project our politics onto those who came before us. We have a strong inclination to frame Americans of the past, […]

But the first audience for the case for overruling Roe is the Justices. And there are several reasons why the case for the unworkability […]

By taking the issue of abortion away from the American people and by imposing one policy for 50 states, the Supreme Court has roiled national politics and damaged its own standing — all in its one ruling in Roe v. Wade. Justice Blackmun’s opinion in Roe made up a right to abortion in American history, and admitted that […]

“Regardless of anyone’s personal views on abortion, no person should be coerced into participating in an abortion against their moral convictions or religious beliefs. I applaud the Office of Civil Rights and this Administration for taking seriously the conscience rights of healthcare providers and enforcing decades-old legal protections like the Church Amendments. It is imperative that no employee be forced to choose between their job and their beliefs.”
After the recent news of Planned Parenthood’s departure from the Title X federal family planning program, many have made the point that the abortion giant’s decision to kick itself out of Title X in favor of continuing to refer women for abortions rather puts the lie to its claim to be “America’s most trusted provider […]
