Is anyone really surprised that the Democrats misrepresent Roe vs Wade?

Last year, on the fifth anniversary of Blackmun's death, the Library of Congress opened his papers to the public. His thick files on the abortion cases tell the little-known story of how Roe vs. Wade came to be. It is the story of a rookie justice, unsure of himself and his abilities, who set out to write a narrow ruling that would reform abortion laws, not repeal them.

It is also the story of a sometimes rudderless court led by Chief Justice Warren Burger. On the day the ruling was announced, Burger said, "Plainly, the court today rejects any claim that the Constitution requires abortion on demand."

Yah the tortured logic used to justify Roe v. Wade is so suspect, it’s amazing that it hasn’t been overturned yet. Political opinions held by the jurists since then have likely been the cause of a de facto stare decisis.
