And What’s to Stop Congress From...


And what’s to stop Congress from calling women who might seek abortions? Well, what’s to stop Congress from doing anything stupid or outrageous? We, the people. Even those who oppose abortion would likely react very negatively to such a spectacle. Congress has called witnessed who’ve had abortions who regret having had the procedure and others who’ve argued against prohibiting, for instance, partial birth abortion. This has been done without exploitation or abuse. But the question the critics of the House refuse to ask and answer is who or what can check a judiciary that, more and more, is making policy decisions? If not Congress, than no one. And in many cases, I expect that’s perfectly fine by them.
