When Rights Collide
Roe v. Wade has been fated to be overruled. Its demise has been guaranteed because of the evident political nature of the opinion, and because the Supreme Court will not long favor one intensely held "right" over its opposite intensely held "right." Past history shows the Court will step back from such a position. Finally, Roe v. Wade will be disposed of because it stands for certain values this country has long ago rejected.
