Roe v. Wade sets a slippery slope

Published 3:37 pm Saturday, January 29, 2011

Robin Brown seems to believe we do not know what would happen if Roe v. Wade is overturned. I believe we do. All we have to do is look at the days before the Supreme Court made the decision. Did you feel less safe before the decision? I didn’t. I think we need to look at where we go if it is not overturned. If a woman controls her body and can kill her baby, how can it be illegal for her to sell sex? If same-sex marriage is the same as a marriage between a man and a woman, how do you stop there? There is plenty of precedent for polygamy, so why would it be illegal? My fear is a country where we replace the people’s moral view of rights with the courts’ ever-expanding legal view of rights.
