I would like to think, given all the press coverage this week, that most people most of the time now understand that Roe is in the throes of entering a vegetative state. I’d like to think most people most of the time now understand that the brief era during which all American women had the right to bodily control is closing. I’d like to think most people most of the time now see that Texas, where abortion is virtually banned, is the beginning of the end.
I’m not so sure, though. For one thing, it’s still summer. Labor Day isn’t quite here yet. Fact is, most Americans are still preoccupied with summer ending or with the school year beginning or whatever. For another, the United States Supreme Court did not strike down Roe in a fury of righteousness, as one might have expected from the institution that handed down Brown v the Board of Education. Instead, it broke its own rules to allow a state, that itself broke the rules, to invalidate Roe so that most people won’t notice what happened until it’s too late.
