Newsweek interviews Robert Bork, Ronald Reagan’s defeated Supreme Court appointee who many pro lifers thought could help end abortion by overturning Roe. He finds the concept absurd.

“I oppose abortion. But an amazing number of people thought that I would outlaw abortion. They didn’t understand that not only did I have no desire to do that, but I had no power to do it. If you overrule Roe v. Wade, abortion does not become illegal. State legislatures take on the subject. The abortion issue has produced divisions and bitterness in our politics that countries don’t have where abortion is decided by legislatures.”

Of course, it should be remembered that shortly before Roe was made the law of the land, the legislature in California had just liberalized its abortion laws. The governor at the time was Ronald Reagan. Ironic.

  1. The Constitution is law for the law-makers. Killing is a crime issue (state and local issue) and a sin issue (against Gods law). If and when Roe is overturned it will in some states be a crime issue and in some states not, but the killing of innocent life is always a sin issue for which Christ took it upon himself so that in Him we might have both forgiveness and life.
