The problem with taking away that constitutional right and trying to make a law in which the government has the authority to deny her that choice, is seen when a determination as to the point at which, among the huge number and variety of possible medical conditions that can put a woman’s life in danger and/or determining the degree to which it is likely to be fatal. Who makes that determination...the state...or the attending physician?
Hate responded: ’If Alito's opinion becomes the ruling, it will be the PEOPLE who have authority.”
It will be the PEOPLE who have authority only if you agree with a particular ruling made by the court. If you don’t agree with a Supreme Court Ruling you say the court is foisting something on the people.
You are constantly contradicting yourself when you try to debate here.
”MY use of words is imprecise. Yours is crystal clear.
You get to choose my paradigm and define my words. Your truth is the standard. Right. Got it. I've hung out with elites all of my life.”
Wrong... “You” define your words not me. I define my words using the generally accepted meaning of the words.
”Your truth is the standard.”
What you call “my truth” is this...When you or I make an assertion, it will be true if it conforms to reality. That’s clear and precise with no smoke and mirrors or obfuscation, and my assessment is that it is pretty much the standard way most of us think about the meaning of truth.
” “But, if pb got his way, abortion would be safe and very extremely rare.”
That’s what Roe V Wade helps to bring about, but you think Roe was foisted on us, and you have fought to have it reversed.
In the past 40 years, the abortion rate has dropped from 29.3 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age to 11.4.
Reducing unintended pregnancies is the way to reduce the rate of abortions, making them rare and safe. Making laws forbidding abortions doesn't do that.
As far as “late term abortions” go, you do know, I hope, that only about 1.3% of abortions take place on or after 21 weeks. The vast majority, 93%, take place before the 13th week.

Here's a near-perfect comparison.
The Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education took away the "right of white parents to get a public school education for their children separate and equal from them dern darkies.
If the Alito opinion becomes the Court’s decision, it will take away the right of women to kill their unborn babies.
Neither a bad thing.

That's a non sequitur since it doesn't contradict anything I said.
You simply gave two examples of the Supreme Court doing their job which is to interpret the Constitution.
