Review of Roe and pre-Roe rulings

I enjoyed reading Mark Levin's recent piece in the National Review. It discusses how "judges make laws," how the Beltway can effect the reasonings/rulings of Supreme Court judges, and a comparison between Justices Blackmun and Kennedy.

Money quote: "So the right to privacy means everything and nothing. It has no constitutional basis and no tangible form. But what is clear is that the Supreme Court, by usurping the legislature’s authority to set social policy, has seized from the people the power to make such determinations. A mere five justices are now able to substitute their personal judgments for those of Congress and every state government in the name of privacy rights."
