State constitutions could be obstacles if Roe is reversed
June 23, 2011
American pro-life activists have understandably concentrated their efforts on overturning the Roe v. Wade decision that overturned state laws against abortion. But William Saunders notes that many states now have written legal abortion into their own constitutions, so that even if Roe is overturned, the pro-life movement will have more legal work to do. Saunders welcomes the efforts in some states to eliminate any local obstacles to legislation that would provide protection for the unborn.
