Contributing sentiments towards policy:

48% : A proper understanding of the 14th Amendment may aid opponents of abortion in the task of persuasion, but it cannot substitute for its accomplishment.
44% : The chief way that principle could be applied to unborn children is by restricting abortion, as states at the time were increasingly doing.
43% : Blackmun conceded that the case for a constitutional right to abortion "collapses" if a human fetus counts as a "person" entitled to constitutional protections.
43% : But during the era in which the amendment was ratified, state after state tightened laws against abortion.
42% : It leaves legislatures free to prohibit abortion or to allow it.
40% : Presumably that means that it should throw out laws that allow abortion, at least for reasons other than the protection of a mother's life.
40% : It is unlikely that a majority of the court will act anytime soon to prohibit abortion.
40% : When the Supreme Court next reconsiders its abortion jurisprudence, conservative justices should refute both halves of Blackmun's argument, not just his case that abortion receives constitutional protection, but also his case that unborn children do not.
38% : If the high court told legislators and prosecutors to fight abortion and many of them balked, what would it then do?
37% : They agreed that a fetus is not a constitutional person while considering Blackmun's other key conclusion -- that the Constitution protects abortion -- absurd.
37% : The truth, they said, is that the Constitution says nothing about abortion and implies nothing about abortion.
37% : He claimed that the laws against abortion were passed to protect women from unsafe surgery rather than to protect unborn life.
37% : Congress is within its rights to legislate against abortion, something that federalist-minded conservatives have sometimes questioned.
35% : But there have always been opponents of abortion who believe that this standard critique of Roe does not go far enough.
35% : As Finnis points out, an Ohio legislative committee referred to abortion as "child-murder" while justifying a stronger anti-abortion law (and did so just a few weeks after the state ratified the 14th Amendment).
35% : What the thesis cannot do is act as a magic wand that overcomes our country's deep political disagreements over abortion.
35% : For abortion to be banned, state and federal legislators will have to want it to be banned, and for them to want it, voters will have to want it.
