The Trump administration attack on abortion rights

Posted By on Sun, Nov 12, 2017 at 9:11 AM

I won't attempt to summarize in any detail Linda Greenhouse's learned essay on the Trump administration attack on abortion rights other than to say it's alarming.

It arises from the effort to stop a Central American immigrant from obtaining an abortion and continuing legal efforts to punish the lawyers who helped the teenager obtain the abortion she sought.

In short, writes Greenhouse, the government is arguing it need not obey the law if it doesn't like the law.
