ABSTRACT
The article discusses how pro-life groups can erode the precedential value of Roe v. Wade case, paving the way for its overruling, and legally discourage abortion in the U.S. It makes two suggestions that should also be useful to those who wish to reverse other legal trends they find immoral. The author suggests the passage of state or federal laws that restrict abortion rights in ways approved by at least fifty percent of the public in national public opinion polls. The next step is to shape public opinion against abortion.
