Alito And Roe

This whole thing with Sam Alito's comments on Roe v. Wade in 1985 can be summed up easily. Most people, like myself, who favor legal abortion with common sense restrictions know that Roe is bad law. There is nothing in the Constitution to justify it and Harry Blackmun simply made it up. Daniel Flynn points out that even some great liberal legal minds agree.

Roe should be overturned by SCOTUS and then each of the 50 states should pass laws either legalizing abortion or banning abortion depending of the will of the people in each respective state. That's the democratic process as it should be.
