Back to Austia - McCain has never said he would ban abortion period! This is just more partisan nonsense and putting words into people's mouth is all. McCain has said Roe v Wade ought to be reversed. Since Roe herself says it should be reversed is a strong agrument to do so from a legal point of view. The fact the court in making the decission over stepped itself and the issue is enough of a reason to reverse it. I would ask Austia if he has ever bothered to read the decission - I venture not! As a result he has no idea of what the court said and why they said it and he further has no idea why most legal experts and now including the ABA say it was a bad ruling based on issues not before the court nor even argued. I also bet he has no idea what the court said regarding medical expertise on the matter and why. In other words he takes a position that he is right and the rest of us are wrong merely because he can and its a political point that his side has made their holy grail.
I should add that no President can reverse Roe! It will take the SC deciding to review itself to do so. But then the court needs to review all the decissions of the past 40 years and reverse most of them in any case not just this one, but they wont. It took them over 100 years to even hear a gun rights case and then they got it right cause they had no choice so I dont expect them to do a whole hell of a lot regardless of who is on the court.
