A Comment

Kilpatrick, James Jackson
May 1979
National Review;5/25/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 21, p678
The article comments on the legality of abortion in the United States. Some decisions of the Courts in the United States have somehow made abortion legal. In the Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 case in Texas, the court allowed abortion to protect the right to privacy of a woman. Abortion cannot just be legalized because a fetus has the right to be alive. The legislative history of the U.S. does not completely support abortion.
