That’s the sage analysis by the Washington Post of growing momentum among the states to make their own laws regulating abortion. South Dakota’s legislature passes a near-total ban, and Mississippi’s is considering it. It’s downright shocking to the Post that some states would outlaw abortion if Roe were overturned.
What’s so disturbing about these atmospherics? The Post doesn’t say — rather, it assumes that the so-called right to abortion is a foregone conclusion. Again, abortion rights proponents are revealed as not pro-choice, but pro-abortion.
The Post fails to acknowledge that in January 1973, 31 states prohibited abortion with exceptions to save the life of the mother. That’s what overturning Roe means: throwing out the specious right to an abortion and letting the states decide. But the pro-abortion folks can’t countenance that choice — this minority wants to impose its regime on the entire country. Fortunately, such a position is simply unsustainable over the long term, as our friends at the Post are slowly learning.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
