Sure. That's the same argument used by some of the gun control advocate groups.Protecting human life is, however, a legitimate government purpose even if you advocate for a small unintrusive government.
The originalist argument hasn't carried the day either. JoCal has done a yeoman's job of pointing out how a new right was carved out for the 2nd (which it was) but that hasn't exactly won the day either.The justification for overturning Roe v. Wade is that it is bad law based on made up Constitutional rights.
On the other side, I rather strongly suspect that the Supreme court WILL allow limits and I rather strongly suggest that States will enact a 20 week limit on elective abortions. If you can deliver a 20 week old baby and have it live to adulthood, it gets pretty hard to argue that 20 weeks isn't 'a life'.
And with that, I'm done on this topic
