But the courts yes? R v W killed the issue in the states where the pro abortion folks were changing laws in their favor but wouldn't have been able to legalize unrestricted abortion or federal subsidies to abortion. It politicized the court and religion and made extremist modernist views main stream and has led liberals to the far left where to preserve their position they have been compelled to denigrate religion and all the western notions on which freedom was founded. Had the S Court not invented the right the court and the country would be better off. Even Ginsberg has said it was a mistake.
