“Democracy” Doesn’t Work as an Argument Against Overturning Roe v. Wade

“In the wake of a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion which, if it represents a final vote, would overturn Roe v. Wade, pro-choice advocates are marshaling their best — and worst — arguments against removing that ruling’s protections for abortion. As always, I’ll refrain from sharing my own opinions on abortion as such. I’m not interested in convincing anyone of anything there, if for no other reason than that I’m not firmly convinced myself. I won’t refrain from sharing my opinions on poor arguments, though. Both in general and on abortion specifically, they’re quite possibly my top pet peeve. And the worst argument I’m hearing right now is … the envelope, please … Overturning Roe would be ‘undemocratic.'” (05/05/22)
