In the vein of law and literature, has anyone seen an abortion ruling that
so graphically describes the procedures? Or which finds that the doctor
"kills the fetus"? Or that a fetus is a "living organism within the womb"?
Or which declares that "respect for human life finds an ultimate expression
in the bond of love the mother has for her child"? The last phrase sounds a
little like Justice Bradley in Bradwell v. Illinois. I added the italics.
