‘How Do We Save Roe?’

Wrong question, says American University government professor Chris Edelson. I agree wholeheartedly. If we wish to save an American woman's right to choose abortion, we'd better adopt a more constitutionally sound basis on which to argue it. (Sarah Weddington posited a similar approach in her book, A Question of Choice.)

Read Mr. Edelson's article, carefully, perhaps twice through. He doesn't argue strategy; we must adopt one appropriate to the task... but he does assert a simple constitutional basis, not in an implied right of privacy (always a dicey, nonspecific argument in constitutional terms) but rather as a First Amendment freedom-of-religion matter. Think about it; you may agree.
