Even Liberals Hate Roe

Add Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen to the legion of liberals now questioning the wisdom of pro-choicers' continued defense of Roe v. Wade.

Simply put, it's bad law. Additionally, it isn't just some simple procedure. It has real traumatic consequences, as Cohen acknowledges. He is generally comfortable with the fact that in most states, abortion will be protected through the first trimester, and in the places it isn't, women can travel to a neighboring state. This isn't much of a price to pay for something that is poisoning our politics, legal culture, and actually threatening liberalism's long-term goals.
