Ripping Roe

Tim Carney is compiling an ongoing list of quotes from pro-choice commentators and legal scholars criticizing Roe v. Wade.

I think my favorite so far is from Jeffrey Rosen:

"Thirty years after Roe, the finest constitutional minds in the country still have not been able to produce a constitutional justification for striking down restrictions on early-term abortions that is substantially more convincing than Justice Harry Blackmun's famously artless opinion itself. As a result, the pro-choice majority asks nominees to swear allegiance to the decision without being able to identify an intelligible principle to support it."
