An article in The Human Life Review quotes judge Lewis Powell describing a woman’s right to an abortion this way:
“The abortion patient has a right not only to be rid of the growth, called a fetus…but also has a right to a dead fetus.”
Hadley Arkes “Slouching Towards Infanticide” The Human Life Review Summer 1998
