Did Roe Just Get Effectively Overturned? – LewRockwell

A few months ago, Governor Greg Abbott signed the “heartbeat law,” and everyone on the left was screaming about going to the courts to fight for “reproductive rights.” Frankly, I thought we’d be in the courts by now rather than watching the new law go into effect.
So what happened? Well, the law was written in such a way that it makes it difficult to challenge in the courts.

What should be a very private decision between a woman and her support “staff” is suddenly the Federal Gooferment’s business.
We should have a national debate on when does life begin and when do human rights inure to a person.
There’s a school of thought that says “rights” begins when you can assert them. Another say when you can fight for them. Others say at conception, when a human becomes viable outside the womb, or at birth.
I’m a fat old white guy injineer; not a doctor or an ethicist. And I’ve never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. But I’ll go out on a limb and say, in the absence of some consensus otherwise, the Gooferment, at all levels, should focus on more pressing problems. The debt, the deficit, and such come to mind!
