Good Line

Katha Pollitt is her usual cogent self in arguing against the "liberals would be better off if Roe v. Wade were overruled and abortion became a legislative issue again" position. Whether she's right or wrong about the politics and the likely sequel to an overruling, I think that as a legal matter Roe was wrongly decided.

But I've really got to hand it to Pollitt for this rhetorical gem. She says that if Roe goes,
We will have a country in which the same legislature that can't prevent some clod from burning a flag will be able to force a woman to bear a child under whatever circumstances it sees fit.
