Hippocrates’ Last Stand

Imagine it’s 1967. Abortion, except in rare cases, is illegal everywhere in the United States. You can’t imagine that in 45 years abortion will be one of the most contentious political issues in America, and that virtually everyone in the country will be touched by it. If someone describes this future to you, and you ask how it can be avoided, he says, “We need to prevent Roe v. Wade.” And you have no idea what he’s talking about.

In 2012, Roe v. Wade is happening again, this time on the subject of doctor-prescribed suicide. As yet there is no court case, but the machinations to prepare the way for such a case have already begun.
