Why are most people against Roe v. Wade?

The only argument to overturn Roe v. Wade is if it’s unconstitutional. Period.

But since most people couldn’t tell you what the law is if you hit them with it, I’ll offer additional reasons against Roe v. Wade.


Even RBG said Roe v. Wade was a bad legal decision.

Our constitution obviously doesn’t give people the “right to an abortion” because the constitution had existed for 186 years before the Supreme Court presumably found it between two pages stuck with gum.

It’s a fantasy to say the U.S. Constitution is “living” (much like it’s a fantasy to say we can “get money out of politics”). Our founding fathers included within the constitution a way to amend it. You don’t amend it via the courts even if you may agree with the outcome because then we’d slide into a nation of tyrants rather than a nation of laws.

If you want a more in-depth understanding of this point I highly recommend reading the court’s majority opinion, which starts on page 9.


Scientifically, life begins at conception, but when does a life become a “person”? This is not a legal question. A judge cannot look at text to find the answer, but must stare off into the distance and ponder what they feel is a “person.”


This is also not a personal question because the government needs to pick a point in a human’s life at which point they’re entitled to protection.

Some people believe you shouldn’t be a person until your 18-years-old and “move out of my god d*mn house, Anthony.” The Romans permitted infanticide. The Democratic Party basically supports unrestricted abortion by supporting NY’s Reproductive Health Act where a non-physician can abort a 9-month-old baby so long as he and the mother feel her “health is at risk.”

The Right is more divided. Most of us believe in drawing a line sometime between the 6th and 24th week with exceptions after-the-fact. We also don’t think taxpayers should be funding it directly or indirectly.
