The Texas Pro-Life Bill and the Constitution


On the constitutional questions (or lack thereof) regarding the late-term abortion bill passed by the Texas House yesterday, I highly recommend this clear and succinct Public Discourse piece (adapted from recent testimony before the Texas state senate committee on health and human services) by Carter Snead, a law professor at Notre Dame and one of the leading legal thinkers of the pro-life movement. Well worth your while.
