The Fetal Right to Life Argument: Roe v. Wade (1973) is probably the most important Supreme Court case in the last fifty years. It has divided the nation on moral issues and it continues to be a lightning rod in political debate. In it, the Supreme Court held that a fetus has no right to life and is not a “person” within the meaning of the Constitution. This part of Roe v. Wade was a colossal error, an abuse of judicial power, and an act of social activism. The egregious flaws in Roe can be corrected with a fetal right to life Amendment to the Constitution.
