    I agree with jfb. The author is extremely biased. She makes very little reference to the merits of the prolife position on each of the pending cases, and fails to acknowledge that the overwhelming majority of abortions in the U.S. are not "medical necessities to protect the health of the mother." Most are used as an extreme and expensive method of birth control, plain and simple. Roe v. Wade was based on constitutional shakey grounds and the faulty logic of that decision has unfortunately been perpetuated by the ACLU and pro-abortion groups since then.

    Sounds like the author is biased in that she refers to an Anti abortion group and not a pro life group. If that's the case then pro choice should be called pro abortion, but that's probably not the view they want.
