Roe Anniversary Day


Jessica Mason Pieklo has a good roundup of the legal challenges to Roe.

Meanwhile, in “for Republicans, life begins at conception and ends at birth” news, the March For Life (sic) will feature activism against the Affordable Care Act:

The 41st annual march Wednesday will feature lawyer Susan Wills, assistant director for education and outreach for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, discussing the Affordable Care Act and its mandate requiring large employers to insure birth control as part of their health care plans, including “morning after” pills that some religious organizations equate to abortion.

“Certain groups are being forced to carry these life-destructive drugs and devices in the name of health, and with no recourse,” said Jeanne Monahan, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “So that is a huge problem. That one development is very pressing in our news today.”

Another reminder that the “centrist” arguments that pro-choicers should concede that abortion is icky and accede to a grab bag of arbitrary abortion regulations in order to attract the non-existent opponents of legal abortion who would settle for expanded access to contraception instead of banning abortion were smarm before it had been definitively defined.
