I don't want to start yet another abortion debate bit I agree, it is "stare decisis".But having said that, I must point out that the right to an abortion in not mentioned in the constitution whereas the right to gun ownership is. That is an important distinction that you conveniently ignoreI have no interest in getting into abortion too, but it is far from "stare decisis" in the opinion of many people (and judges). The point being that nothing is ever really settled, while there is an element of interpretation. The two instances guns & abortions both fall into that category. On is mentions in the constitution with obvious linguistic ambiguity, the other falls under individual rights which also yields multiple interpretations on the same subject. The point being that neither of them are settled and are subject to political change.
