I am in favor of a woman’s right to an abortion until the woman’s fetus gets a Cognitive Brain Wave. That is the same brain wave we use to determine death of a patient, and when that wave exists it should determine life.

At one extreme of the argument we have the religious argument, primarily from the Catholic Church, that life begins at conception. At the other extreme is the proposed Virginia law, since defeated, that abortion can take place after the birth is completed. Apparently, that is also the case of the existing law in New York today. I can’t see that law passing legal muster under any circumstance. It is infanticide pure and simple, and I can’t understand the state legislature even passing that.

I have always believed that Roe v. Wade was a mistake. It should be a state issue under my reading of the 10th Amendment* since abortion is not in the Constitution, and neither is a Right to Privacy. I don’t object to the content of Roe v. Wade, just the tortuous manner in which it was decided. A Constitutionally aware SCOTUS needs to remedy this, and I believe it will..

I don’t argue with the State of New York’s right to set the limit on abortion, but I disagree with no restriction at all. States can argue where that limit is. I argue a Cognitive Brain Wave. Your opinion may vary….
