How can it be considered progress when we readily rationalize that someone is not really a human and thus are not covered under the rights of all humans? Those professing progress are advocating for regress. Abortion is no different than infanticide and at the moment at least that is still considered bad by the progressives. Our rights are absolute from conception and no amount of rationalizing them away will change that fact. "Roe" was a bad ruling that did not account for even the science we knew at the time. At 18 days there is a heartbeat. It is a human life.

Regardless of one’s position on the High Court’s infamous decision forty years ago today to legalize abortion “[a]t any stage of pregnancy, for any reason,” most Americans -- not to mention legal scholars and academics -- recognize that Roe is bad Constitutional law. Nevertheless, support for the controversial ruling has reached an all-time high, at least according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll:

Forty years after the Supreme Court legalized abortion in its Roe v. Wade decision, seven out of 10 Americans support the groundbreaking rulings, according to a poll released Tuesday.
