US Supreme Court seen open to incremental pro-life legislation

Catholic World News - June 08, 2010

Surveying the recent decisions of the US Supreme Court, legal theorist (and newly baptized Catholic) Hadley Arkes concludes that in effect, the Court is saying: "We are prepared to entertain seriously the argument that abortions, under certain conditions, may rightly be restricted and even barred." That message should be a great encouragement to pro-life activists at the state level, he says.

    Wonderful that Hadley Arkes has become a Catholic! I recall enjoying his pro-life columns in the magazine, Crisis, and discovered he was a Jew (I believe). I wondered then how long it would be for this good Jew to become a Hebrew Catholic. Praise God!
