Reversing Doe Would Be a Good Start at Rolling Back Roe
While polls indicate that many Americans do not want to reverse Roe v. Wade, these same polls indicate concerns with late-term abortions as well as those for reasons other than rape, incest, or a threat to the life of the mother. It would be neither radical nor presumptuous if the Roberts Court were to reverse, or substantially redefine, the definition of “health” by limiting it to direct physical threats.

Such action by the Court would not be a radical departure with the common moral sense of the American people. Rather, it would allow for greater ethical, legal, and political realism in the debate over the humanity of the unborn and the merits of state protection of those interests. It would be consistent with the better angels of our nature.
