We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely — the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

That provision has been held to guarantee some rights that are not mentioned in the Constitution, but any such right must be ‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition’ and ’implicit in the concept of ordered liberty.

It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.

  1. But what now? For 50 years Americans have built their lives and intimate relationships on an assumption that in the case of an unwanted pregnancy, they have a constitutional right to end it. The entire world has gone crazy over this ruling. People everywhere rally against it and take a pro abortion stance more fiercely than ever. UN has declared abortion a human right. Other countries have liberalized their abortion legislation in the vein of US one for years, allowing for extremely late-term abortions. How many decades will it take to reverse the damage this half a century (plus, in many parts of the world) inflicted on us?
