@malteengeler I disagree strongly with the ruling, but given the court’s decision, is it still correct to call abortion (or more general, bodily autonomy) a “right”?
The inalienable rights are expressly enumerated as “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Unfortunately it isn’t what we, the layperson, think it should be. The body charged with interpreting what those rights are just excluded abortion.
You agree it’s wrong, I agree it’s wrong, but knowing it’s wrong will be little solace to the woman sitting in a prison cell. Our interpretation of rights don’t count for a hill of beans in the legal system.
