Revisiting Roe

Happy Belated Birthday to Troglotyke #5

Tonight Hannity & Colmes had an exclusive interview that revealed that Norma McCorvey (Roe of Roe v. Wade) will seek to have the decision vacated. Resetting the judicial landscape to before the decision, of course, would not be the end. It is necessary, but not sufficient, to secure justice for the helpless and innocent because, in the main, it is a cultural question, rather than a political one. If waving a political wand were all that is necessary, then the gifts of Martin Luther King, Jr. would not have been needed after the Civil War; put simply, politics lags. An acknowledged political solution ultimately will mark the end of the matter, and a vacated decision will not be it. Nevertheless, let's pray that the government moves this way now for the benefit of the nation.
