From a libertarian POV, I think each state has the right to decide how it wants to approach abortion. I appose many of the religious right organisations that want a federal law or constitutional amendement to prevent it. Row v Wade was bad law and stepped on the rights of states. Bring it back to them.

I happen to think that *morally* the conclusion of Roe vs Wade is correct.

But the Supreme Court is supposed to be a court of law, not a court of morality.

And that decision was based on the Griswold case. Another instance of the Court reaching a decision that I think is *morally* right.

But legally?

The conclusion of Griswold was heavily based on an "aura" that is "emanating" from the "penumbra" of other rights.

Seriously? A stench coming from the shadows?

Maybe somebody should pull the refrigerator out and clean the space under it.

Can we PLEASE revisit this and either come up with an explanation that passes a laugh test, or conclude that the federal government has no Constitutional authority to have an opinion?
