I was a young intensive care unit nurse when the Roe v. Wade …Continue reading "Roe v. Wade’s Disastrous Impact on Medical Ethics"
By Dave Andrusko One hundred and sixty two years ago today, the Supreme Court handed down its disastrous Dred Scott v. Sanford decision. Like Roe v. Wade, to which pro-lifers routinely compare it, the High Court’s vote was 7-2. Like Roe v. Wade, Dred Scott v.
