Speak Out: Abortion debate

Readers reacted to a recent commentary headlined “Overturning Roe vs. Wade unlikely in near future”

• The big misconception is that Roe v Wade is “law” and it is not. The Supreme Court cannot write law. It only rules on the constitutionality of a law in one particular case and that was a Texas case decision. The legalization of abortion, federally, would have been a process that would have started in Congress and then signed by a president which it never was and it was left to the individual states, read the 10th amendment. — David A Gibson

• That means nothing when it comes to precedent. Overcoming it is virtually impossible without a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion. And that will never happen, so none of these heartbeat laws will hold up in court. — Susan Janis

• Gotta love all the major movie production companies about to boycott Georgia if they pass a restrictive abortion bill. Even Disney signed on. Bravo to those companies for standing up for what is right. — Eddie Curley

• And yet they are filming in countries that ban abortion. — Dana Watford Kavanagh

• Just out of sheer curiosity I ask: How do conservatives say on one hand that banning guns “don’t work” and yet also say “ban abortions”? Their hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me.

• Just out is sheer curiosity I ask: How do liberals say on one hand they are “pro choice” and yet don’t allow you a choice on keeping your own money, what schools you send your children to, your choice to own firearms, what foods and drinks you’re allowed to consume, if you’re allowed to join a union, etc. Their hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me. — Rob Holley

Well I mean one is an actual constitutionally protected right and the other isn’t for starters. — Ryano Ryan

• Overturning Roe would not outlaw abortion. It would be up to the states to make their own abortion laws . Prohibitive laws in some states would encourage Congress to actually do their job , and pass a law one way or another. — Lou Bialota

• The hypocrisy here is that Republicans want less government intrusion in our lives, yet intrude into the most holy of holies by telling a woman what she can do with her own body! Women are not the property of the U.S. government, especially fat old rich white men with Messianic complexes. — Gary Greer
