Reasoning From the Body: An Historical Perspective on Abortion Regulation and Questions of Equal Protection, 44 STAN. L. REV. 261 (1992)
Controversy surrounding Roe v. Wade has grown steadily in the nearly two decades since the case was decided. Supreme Court appointments by two administrations openly hostile to Roe may finally have presented Roe's original dissenting Justices with the votes needed to overrule or substantially revise the decision. With the prospect of Roe's demise at hand, it is no longer clear what protections, if any, will be afforded the right to abortion, as a matter of federal constitutional law.
