to do with the results.
The point is the Lancet is a peer reviewed journal, if the reviewers had felt their methods were overly biased to affect their results then the paper would have been rejected instead of published. Not that peer review is perfect, but its certainly been held to a higher standard than the usual pro-life/pro-abortion propaganda.
So why can't both be done?
I didn't say you couldn't do both but overturning Roe just tosses it back to the states, some states will certainly remain legal and women that really want abortions will just travel to those states, or worse, undergo illegal abortions. The point is the pro-life movement sees Roe v. Wade as the FIRST and frequently ONLY answer. Getting at the actual root of the problem and stopping it in a manageable way
isn't even on the radar screen.
